There is one American Governor who is not messing around when it comes to election integrity.
He is Texas Governor Greg Abbot, and you can tell he’s done playing games with Democrats based on what he said during a recent television interview.
Here’s what happened: A group of Democrat state legislators flew out of town on a private jet Monday to prevent Texas lawmakers from voting on an election overhaul bill that would limit early and curbside voting, bans on 24-hour voting centers, limits to the usage of ballot drop-boxes, and other provisions. The bill is intended to clean up election fraud and instill more integrity in the Texas election process.
Of course, many Democrats are opposing the bill.
This little stunt pulled by these Texas Democrats worked in the present moment to delay the vote. However, they have a rude awakening coming when they try to come home.
Abbott, a Republican, told KVUE-TV that his office and the House speaker’s office have the power to arrest the lawmakers until they “get the job done.”
“There is something the governor can do. First of all, I’ll tell you what the House of Representatives can do. What the speaker can do is issue a call to have these members arrested,” Abbott said. “In addition to that, however, I can and I will continue to call a special session after special session after special session all the way up until election next year.”
Abbott said that the Democrats are “going to have to be prepared to do it for well over a year.”
“As soon as they come back in the state of Texas, they will be arrested, they will be cabined inside the Texas Capitol until they get their job done,” Abbott remarked.
“Everybody who has a job must show up to do that job, just like your viewers watching right now. State representatives have that same responsibility.”The Epoch Times on Way Back Machine
Governor Abbott and other state Republicans want this bill passed to protect future elections and regain the confidence of voters in Texas.
Democrats around the country continue to fight for a flimsy election process that is easy to hack and manipulate the results.
The United States is the only nation that doesn’t require a photo I.D. when voting.
Wake up before it’s too late, folks.
