Texas House Democrat Senfronia Thompson was one of the dozens of lawmakers who fled her state and now she’s playing the victim and absurdly comparing staying in the chamber and doing the job she was elected to do to being “a hostage.”
At least 58 Democrat members of the state House of Representatives fled Texas and headed to Washington DC to block Republicans from advancing new voting laws through a special session of the legislature.
Now the Democrats, who took private jets to DC, are playing victim and claiming the job they were elected to do is somehow oppressive.
“”I’m up here because I don’t plan to be a sitting person in that legislature,” Thompson said. “I’m not gonna be a hostage!”
