By an 18-11 marginal vote, The Texas Senate passed the Republican Election Integrity Bill. The Democrats attempted a filibuster but were unsuccessful after 15 hours. Democrats seem to be terrified of audits. Even for a state that they lost, Texas, they still are attempting to shut it down. What are they so scared of?
The Texas Senate has passed a bill with new voting restrictions on Thursday morning, after a Democratic Texas lawmaker finished a roughly 15-hour filibuster where she had to speak constantly and not lean on her desk, eat, drink or use the restroom in protest of the state’s Republican-backed legislation.
Lawmakers in Texas’s upper house voted 18-11 in favor of the bill aimed at enhancing election security.
Debate on the measure began Wednesday evening before State Senator Carol Alvarado began speaking continuously and wrapped just before 9 a.m. local time on Thursday.The Daily Mail
