posted by Hannity Staff - 7.20.21

Texas Democrats confirmed this week that their colleagues’ escape to Washington, DC in a last-ditch effort to derail a voting integrity bill will cost Lone Star taxpayers $1.5 million in additional costs.

“Texas state Rep. Armando Walle (D) told NBC News that the price of keeping the Democratic lawmakers out of Texas until Aug. 7, when the session ends, could be as high as $1.5 million,” reports The Hill. “He said the two private jets most of the lawmakers flew on to Washington cost more than $100,000. Fees for housing, food and other transportation are expected to make up the majority of the remaining expenses.

In addition to the increased cost, at least five members of the Democrat delegation tested positive for COVID-19 upon arrival in the nation’s capital.

Vice President Kamala Harris backed Texas Democrats Wednesday who fled the Lone Star State to stop a voting integrity bill from making its way through the Capitol in Austin; calling them “bold” and “courageous.”

“They took bold, courageous action in line with the legacy of Frederick Douglass, to the legacy that involves women who marched down Pennsylvania Avenue, and all those folks who shed blood on the bridge in 1965 to pass the Voting Rights Act,” Harris said Wednesday.

“And now, we have in 2021, the Texas Legislature,” she continued. “Many of them traveled to Washington, D.C., at great sacrifice to stand up for the American right to vote, unencumbered.”
