It's not the Governor's call. Nor the Attorney General. They have no authority to arrest members who flee the state. This is 100% on the Speaker of the House.

One down, where are the other 56 warrants? I wouldn't want anyone accusing the House of playing favorites, or in this case, racism.

Why wasn't he arrested when he arrived and why wasn't he arrested before he could leave Texas again? Seems our Republican leaders ican talk a great game, but do nothing.

Oh it's even worse than that - this guy was in LEADERSHIP. Phelan gave him the CHAIR of the Urban Affairs committee.

This is how these people repay good faith "bipartisanship" and I for one am FED UP with it.
