There is a new development in what could possibly be the most epic miscalculation for the Democrat Party in a sea of bizarre blunders, selfish misdeeds, and childish tantrums.
On Tuesday, it was announced by the Texas Speaker of the House, Dade Phelan, for the civil arrest of Democrat Rep. Philip Cortez, after running away from his obligations and flying off to Washington DC for some political theater, that has gone very wrong for him.
Last week I went back to Texas with a goal of improving the restrictive elections bill. After discussions with Republican leadership didn’t yield any substantive results, I have rejoined my Democratic colleagues in Washington D.C. to continue this fight on this front. pic.twitter.com/DXBcT7yiz5

The Texas Tribune reported:
“Texas Democrat Leader Issued Arrest Warrant – GOP Speaker Orders Police To Take Rep. Cortez Into Custody,” by Ben Dutka.
“Recently, Texas Democrats fled the state to avoid a quorum in the House, to stop the state GOP from passing a series of voting bills.
It was done as a statement, and many leftist politicians supported it. But the state of Texas, including the Governor, thought differently.
And now, they’ve issued an arrest warrant for one of the “fleeing” Democrats.
Immediately after the Democrat representatives left the state, Texas Gov. Greg Abbott called for the arrest of those reps.
The protesting Democrats fled to Washington D.C. and likely didn’t expect action to be taken against them.

Cortez had fled to D.C. with more than 50 of his Democratic colleagues earlier this month in an attempt to tank a controversial elections bill. But he returned to the Lone Star State last week — shocking many of his fellow Democrats, who were unaware of his plans — and said he would “try to engage in good faith dialogue” with the GOP author of the legislation.
