Democrats who fled Texas now test positive to COVID-19

The Democrat state lawmakers who fled Texas last week to block the GOP-led elections overhaul bills have tested positive for Covid-19 after taking a private plane to Washington DC.

On Monday, 58 Democrats fled Texas to DC to illegally block Republicans from advancing new voting laws.

Democrat lawmakers were seen packed on a private plane without masks.


At the end of the same week Texas Democratic lawmakers made a mass exodus from the state Capitol to block the GOP-led elections overhaul bills, three fully vaccinated members of the Texas House Democratic Caucus have tested positive for COVID-19, according to Caucus officials.

The Caucus didn’t identify which Democrats had tested positive, or say whether or not they were among those who were aboard the private planes that transported lawmakers to Washington, D.C.

Thegatewaypundit.com reports: Texas House Democrat Caucus Chair Chris Turner released a statement:

“The House Democratic Caucus is following all CDC guidance and protocols. This is a sober reminder that COVID is still with us, and though vaccinations offer tremendous protection, we still must take necessary precautions. We are in touch with public health experts in Texas to provide additional guidance. Our caucus will follow all recommendations from public health experts as we continue our work.”
