Republican officials in Travis County, Texas, are criticizing Democrats who fled the state to prevent a vote on measures to prevent wholesale cheating, which is the real reason the Democrats skipped town. Without the ability to manufacture votes, Democrats’ election hopes fall by the wayside. And as the Democrats were on the plane waiting for takeoff, no one was wearing a mask. Now at least five members have contracted COVID-19. All were vaccinated.
Travis County GOP Chairman Matt Mackowiak said:
“Texas House Democrats engaged in performance theater for weeks claiming Gov. [Greg] Abbott [R-TX] was putting lives at risk by reopening the state economy and waiving the statewide mask mandate.”
“Then they flew to DC on a private jet stocked with Miller Lite without masks, in violation of FAA rules, and now this farce turned into a super spreader event.”
“Dozens of Texas Democrats fled the state on Monday as part of their effort to deny House Republicans a quorum to pass any bills, particularly on issues surrounding election integrity.”

Where are the masks? Who knows how many fawning Democrats in Washington could come down with the disease?
Although Texas has no mandatory mask mandate, all airplanes and jets do, so the Democrats didn’t obey the law in going maskless. And confined to a small space like the inside of the jet, it’s no wonder it is spreading among the runaway Democrats. It also proves that mandating vaccines does not necessarily stop the spread of COVID. And over the,e past two weeks more people died from the vaccine than from the virus.
Texas state Rep. Trey Fischer (D) claimed he and his colleagues chartered the flight to D.C. because “everybody” wanted to see them together.
Meanwhile, some argued the Democrats are using the coronavirus as a political trick.
“I say prove it,” Texas state Rep. Briscoe Cain (R) told Fox News. “I think it’s an excuse to avoid coming back. They want a reason to do a 14-day quarantine; they don’t want to come back and do their jobs. If they really have it, prove it.”
Abbott responded Monday to the Texas Democrats fleeing to D.C. and said the legislators “will be arrested” upon their return.
