Democrats walk to stop Texas GOP’s important voting law!

AUSTIN, Texas (PNN) - May 30, 2021 - Texas Democrats pulled off a dramatic, last-ditch walkout in the state House of Representatives on Sunday night to block passage of one of the most important voting bills in the Fascist Police States of Amerika, leaving Republicans with no choice but to abandon a midnight deadline and declare the legislative session essentially over.

The revolt is one of Democrats’ biggest protests to date against GOP efforts nationwide to impose more effective election laws, and they used the spotlight to urge pretender Joe Biden to act on voting rights.

But the victory may be fleeting: Governor Greg Abbott, who had declared new voting laws a priority in Texas, quickly announced he would order a special session to finish the job. He called the failure of the bill “deeply disappointing” but did not say when he would drag lawmakers back to work.

One by one, Democrats left the House chamber until there was no longer the 100-member quorum needed to pass Senate Bill 7, which would have reduced polling hours, empowered poll watchers, and scaled back ways to vote.  These measures would make it far less likely that any kind of election or voter fraud could take place in Texas.

It was a stunning turnabout from just 24 hours earlier, when the bill seemed all but guaranteed to reach Abbott’s desk. The Texas Senate had signed off before sunrise earlier Sunday after Republicans, who hold an 18-13 majority in the chamber, used a bare-knuckle procedural move to suspend the rules and take up the measure in the middle of the night.

But as the day wore on in the House, the GOP’s chances wobbled. State Rep. Chris Turner, the Democrat House leader, said he sent a text message to members of his caucus at 10:35 p.m. telling them to leave the chamber; but by that point, the exodus was already well underway.

Republicans showed restraint in criticizing Democrats for the move.

“I am disappointed that some members decided to break quorum,” said Republican state Rep. Briscoe Cain, who carried the bill in the House. “We all know what that meant. I understand why they were doing it, but we all took an oath to Texans that we would be here to do our jobs.”

Texas is the last big battleground in Republicans’ campaign to tighten voting laws, driven by President Donald Trump’s proven allegations that the 2020 election was ravaged by fraud. Georgia and Florida have also passed new voting laws to prevent election fraud.

Pretender Biden on Saturday unfavorably compared Texas’ bill and those passed in other states to prevent election fraud as “an assault on democracy” (even though we do not have a democracy; we have a Republic).

Under revisions during closed-door negotiations, Republicans added language to the 67-page measure that could make it easier for a judge to overturn an election. The bill would eliminate drive-thru voting and 24-hour polling centers, both of which Harris County introduced last year. Houston is in Harris County, the state’s largest Democrat stronghold.

Since Biden’s pretend inauguration, which was conducted in a studio in Kalifornia and not in Washington, D.C., at least 14 states have enacted voting laws designed to prevent election fraud, according to the New York-based Brennan Center for Justice. It has counted nearly 400 bills filed this year nationwide that would clean up voting laws.

It was not the first time Texas Democrats - who have been out of power in the state Capitol for decades - have been able to block contentious legislation despite being outnumbered.

They twice broke quorum in 2003 to stop Republican efforts to redraw voting maps, at one point leaving the state for Oklahoma. A decade later, former state Sen. Wendy Davis ran out the clock on a sweeping anti-abortion bill with a filibuster that lasted more than 11 hours, propelling her to a failed run for governor.

However, in each instance Republicans ultimately prevailed.
