Republican officials in Travis County, Texas, are criticizing the Democrats who left the state and traveled to Washington, D.C., to avoid casting their votes on an election integrity bill.
“Texas House Democrats engaged in performance theater for weeks claiming Gov. [Greg] Abbott [R-TX] was putting lives at risk by reopening the state economy and waiving the statewide mask mandate,” Travis County GOP Chairman Matt Mackowiak said, Fox News reported Saturday.
“Then they flew to DC on a private jet stocked with Miller Lite without masks, in violation of FAA rules, and now this farce turned into a super spreader event,” he added.
Mackowiak also restated his comments on what appeared to be his Twitter page.
He was referring to the news Saturday that three of the Democrats who left Austin, Texas, had tested positive for the coronavirus, despite being fully vaccinated, as Breitbart News reported.
