On Thursday, Democratic Rep. Donna Howard, one of 60 Democratic Texas legislators who fled the state and traveled to Washington D.C. on Monday to stop the Republican-majority state legislature from passing two voting rights bills, posted a photo of her clothes, including her bra and panties, hanging out to dry in a hotel room to show the sacrifice she was making by having to wash her clothes in the sink.
Howard wrote as she showed her leopard print t-shirt and panties, three pairs of underpants, and a bra drying over the shower rail, “You bet we’re recognizing & honoring our country’s heritage. As most Texans do, tho, this is what we’re doing tonight — using whatever is accessible, washing our clothes in the sink.”
