Texas Dems who fled state to avoid vote sue Abbott for ‘distress’

The Texas Democrats that fled the their state on a private plane several weeks ago to avoid a vote on new election laws are now suing Governor Greg Abbott for causing them ‘distress.’

Remember, it was these lawmakers who caught COVID-19 on their trip to D.C. That was shortly after taking and posting a selfie of themselves on the plane without masks on. Mind you, these lawmakers have no problem reprimanding the public for not wearing masks but they apparently have a different set of rules for themselves.

It’s actually like watching a really bad 1970s film and hoping the ending will make sense, which of course, it never does.

The Democratic lawmakers noted in their complaint that the distress they are feeling is due to Abbott’s threat to arrest them when they returned to the state for actually not doing the job they are required to do.

In my opinion, their actions are not only embarrassing but expose the fragility and weakness of the Democratic Party. Come on Republican Party, there is no reason why there should ever be a threat of Texas going blue.

On Friday, 22 of the Democrats filed a complaint in federal court in Austin claiming that Republican attempts to bring them home for a special legislative session is a violation of their rights.The plaintiffs claim they ‘have been deprived of liberty for substantial periods of time, [and] suffered much anxiety and distress over the separation from their families.They also say they have suffered from ‘much discomfort and embarrassment’ because their reputations have been ‘impaired’.In addition to Abbott, GOP House Speaker Dade Phelan and State Rep. James White are also named as defendants in the suit.

BLM co-founder used funds to pay sister, mother, brother and child’s father

Released tax filings show just how Black Lives Matter co-founder Patrisse Cullors spent the millions of dollars raised from “White guilt.” She paid roughly $970,000 to the company of her child’s father to help “produce live events” and other “creative services.”

Over $840,000 was paid to her brother, Paul Cullors, for security services. Daily Mail wrote that “leaders have attempted to justify” the expenses to her brother by saying the “foundation’s protection could not be entrusted to former police professionals who typically run security firms because the BLM movement is known for vehemently protesting law enforcement organizations.”

It was recently disclosed that she bought a $6 million mansion in L.A. for the organization, and denied she took money from BLM for personal matters, although shortly after it was unearthed that she had used the mansion for her own parties.

Cullors also reportedly “reimbursed BLM $73,523 for a charter flight for foundation-related travel, which the organization says she took in 2021 out of concern for COVID-19 and security threats.”

Cullors resigned last year from the organization due to criticism of her finances, such as purchasing multiple homes for herself that cost millions of dollars combined. She also admitted the charity was paying for “employment” of her sister, mother, and brother.

Black Lives Matter Global Network Foundation Inc revealed from July 1, 2020 to June 30, 2021, it ended the fiscal year with nearly $42 million in net assets. “The foundation invested $32 million in stocks from the $90 million it received as donations amid racial justice protests in 2020” adds Daily Mail.
