Seems to me that showing up for the job you were elected to perform would be a metric that matters to voters of all stripes. But as long as there is bipartisan agreement not to keep track in the TX House ... no one gets to find out. #txlege #tcot
Every year somebody posts a video or writes about ghost voting in the TX House and no one seems to care. From what I’ve seen, Ds & Rs respect each others’ wishes, so prolly doesn’t distort how folks vote on issues. But makes tracking absenteeism impossible. #txlege #tcot
This is why it’s really impossible to accurately say who is showing up for work in the Texas House of Representatives. Unlike in DC, where you can track absenteeism, it’s impossible when this ghost voting happens. Never have understood why it’s not a scandal. #txlege twitter.com/mqsullivan/sta…
