Texas House Special Session Adjourned as Not Enough Democrats Present
Texas House Speaker Dade Phelan on Aug. 7 called for the lower chamber to be adjourned until Aug. 9 because not enough Democrats showed up for the special legislative session.
“A quorum is not present,” Phelan said; minutes later, he adjourned the session.
Texas House Democratic Caucus Chair Chris Turner said the Democrats broke the quorum in an attempt to block the Republicans’ election bill.
“Texas House Democrats continue in our fight to stop Texas Republicans’ efforts to undermine our democracy by passing their anti-voter legislation. Day by day, we will keep fighting with everything we have to protect Texans’ freedom to vote,” he said in a statement.
DAWG SAYS: APPARENTLY THE LAWMAKERS ARE NOT WILLING TO DO THE JOB THEY ARE PAID TO DO.
THE REPUBLICANS ALSO DID A LOT OF TRASH TALK ABOUT WARRANTS AND SPECIAL SESSIONS AND ARRESTING PEOPLE, AND IT SHOWS THAT IS ALL TALK.
IN THE END THEY ALL COVER FOR EACH OTHER.
