The Texas Democrats who fled their duties as lawmakers in protest over the common sense GOP election bill that bolsters security and prevents cheating have been outed as massive hypocrites. Who’s surprised?!
It’s shameless the way the Left seeks to demolish American democracy solely to prevent the Republicans from ending their tradition of cheating in elections.
They’ve used every tactic in the book — from playing the race card to arguing the I.D. law is too strict, and therefor discriminates against people of color and impoverished Americans.
However, one of the fugitives, Texas Rep. Erin Zwiener, promoted a neighborhood clean-up event in her home district. The even required a photo ID or local utility bill to identify the volunteers.
Hey y'all, the city of Kyle is hosting a neighborhood clean-up from 8 AM-11:30 AM tomorrow morning at Gregg-Clarke Park.
Kyle residents will be required to:
· Bring a photo ID
· Bring a City of Kyle Utility bill
· Be prepared to help unload at the drop site
· Wear a face mask pic.twitter.com/vLH15VGI1s

She responded to conservative backlash after her hypocrisy went viral:
Want to know how desperate Republicans are? A right wing site is about to use this tweet as evidence that I’ve organized events that require ID.
Never mind that:
1. I didn’t organize this event. The City of Kyle did. We just shared, as we do.
2. HB 3 isn’t about voter ID. https://t.co/yreOuIJYYa

Democrats have opposed voter I.D. for some time, most recently by passing H.R. 1, the “For the People Act,” this year. The bill passed in the House, but the Senate GOP blocked the bill as it needed 60 votes to pass.
The bill sabotages state voter ID requirements by forcing states to allow anyone to vote, with or without an ID, if they sign an unverifiable statement attesting to their identity.
In other words, the legislation would eliminate voter ID in 35 states.
It never ceases to be amazing how Democrats believe Black Americans do not have, and aren’t capable of obtaining, a common state ID.
In an April poll — on CNN of all places — revealed 64% of Americans said that requiring voters to provide photo identification before casting a ballot would make elections more fair.
Another poll in March resulted in similar sentiments: 72% of Americans said they favored requiring photo ID to vote, and Pew Research shows 76% were in favor.
The ever-radical ACLU slammed voter ID laws, writing, “Voter ID laws deprive many voters of their right to vote, reduce participation, and stand in direct opposition to our country’s trend of including more Americans in the democratic process.”
