If you can't beat 'em...run away and hide
Whiny Texas Democrats have fled the state rather than lose a vote on a new redistricting plan out forth by Texas House Republicans. Texas law requires a quorum of at least 100 of 150 members to do business. Fifty-one Democrats went to Oklahoma in a deliberate attempt to thwart a quorum - an act which is illegal under Texas House Rules and could result in jail time:
From Rule 5 of the Texas House of Representatives:
Section 8. Securing A Quorum - When a call of the house is
The Texas legislature should simply wait until these whiny babies return to Texas, then throw them all in the slammer for a few days. Then they should have the sergeant-at-arms march their butts straight to the Texas State House and force the vote.
More evidence that Democrats are selfish, whiny brats who can't take losing.
