Them and their “wives” meaning they are the “men” in the family and therefore wield the dildo.
I love how the democrats circled the wagons saying it’s OK for them to be there because the important business of running a state can easily be done via zoom.
Funny how they never said the same thing when Trump was away during periods THEY felt he needed to be in D.C. for. Or when local politicians here in SD get their kotexes in a wad when Kristi Noem is out of state and they whine and cry about her not being here during the new “Kung-Flu crisis.”
Reps. Julie Johnson and Jessica Gonzáles and their wives planned the trip a year and half in advance and had non-refundable tickets, according to Texas Monthly reporter Jonathan Tilove.
Tilove also said that the legislators were “still participating in caucus meetings via ZOOM.”
The legislators’ absence from Washington, DC will not affect the Democratic legislators’ bid to block a controversial GOP election bill in the state, as long as there is a lack of a quorum at the state capitol in Austin. But the reports could increase political pressure on the group, whose advocacy in Washington has been mired by a series of positive COVID-19 tests and the emergence of a photo of a Miller Lite case on one of the legislators’ busses. Gonzáles is the vice chair of the Texas House Elections Committee, making her absence particularly notable.
Republican legislators were quick to capitalize on the legislators’ “European vacay.”
The news of the legislators’ absence broke as more than 100 state legislators from around the country fly in for a “week of action” to promote the “For the People” Act, a sweeping voting rights bill that is currently stalled in the Senate.
