SUPER SPREADERS: TX Dems Face Backlash After Eight Test Positive for COVID in DC

posted by Hannity Staff - 7.21.21

The group of Texas Democrats who fled the Lone Star State to block a voting integrity law making its way through the Capitol in Austin faced a growing backlash for their public relations stunt after five members and two individuals in DC tested positive for COVID.

“The group of state lawmakers flew in to Washington, D.C., last week in order to lobby the Senate for a Democrat-sponsored voting bill that would quash the type of legislation their home-state Republican counterparts are currently trying to push through. Many of them shared the same charter jet – from which they posted a maskless selfie,” reports Fox News.

“Let our mistake be the object lesson. All of us had been fully vaccinated since March. We got complacent because we felt safe. We had no positives for months, and we got sloppy. Being vaccinated doesn’t ALWAYS stop you from spreading the virus. ALWAYS MASK UP INDOORS!” posted one state representative on Twitter.

“Every member who tested positive had only mild (sniffles) or no symptoms. This is because we’ve all been vaccinated and our bodies already had the anti-bodies ready to combat an infection. But having antibodies doesn’t stop you from shedding viruses until they done their job,” he added.

BACKFIRE: White House Says Kamala Harris Took COVID Test After Meeting with TX Dems in DC

posted by Hannity Staff - 7.21.21

Vice President Kamala Harris reportedly took a COVID-19 test after being exposed to the virus by a group of Texas Democrats in DC to block a voting integrity bill making its way through the State Capitol in Austin.

“Harris held a meeting last week with the state lawmakers, who traveled to Washington, D.C., to stymie Texas Republicans’ elections reform bill. Five of the Democrats have tested positive so far, including state Rep. Trey Martinez Fischer, who confirmed that he had tested positive despite being fully vaccinated,” reports The Hill.

 

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.
