[Ed. – Er … Look! A red car!]

It’s still not clear how exactly a large group of Texas Democrat state lawmakers is financing their trip to Washington, D.C. We do know a couple of well-known names in Texas who are doing their part to pay for this glorified summer vacation.

Texas state Democrats say that they are paying for their trip with campaign coffers and fundraising. They like to say that Texas taxpayers are not paying for it but as long as they are being paid, which they are, then it is taxpayer money. Granted, Texas lawmakers are not paid a lot but nonetheless, it comes from the taxpayers. …

It will be interesting to see who it is that is donating the private planes. That will eventually come out. There is no shortage of wealthy Democrats in Texas willing to support them. Governor Abbott describes the trip as a “junket trip” paid for by taxpayers.
