Wanted: Texas House Democrats

Jessa Crispin (of Bookslut) is rightly proud of the Democratic members of the Texas state House. Most of them “failed to show up Monday morning, preventing the GOP-dominated body from convening because of a lack of a quorum.” CNN reports:

GOP officials had earlier threatened to send police after the missing Democrats. The would-be quorum-busters planned to leave the state to avoid being located by the Department of Public Safety or Texas Rangers, who could detain them and forcibly return them to the House floor, a source said.
