5 Texas House Dems Who Fled to DC to Thwart GOP Voting Reform Bill Test Positive for Covid


At least five of the Texas Democrats who last week left the state to avoid voting on an electoral reform bill have tested positive for coronavirus.

Imagine the way the media would have covered the story if maskless Republican lawmakers had jumped on private jets and fled their states to subvert the will of their constituents.
