Senate Republicans Vote To Fine Run Away Democrats

After 16 days on the run, the Texas Democrats have a new reason to come home early. On Tuesday, Republican State Senators voted to fine the Democrats who are in New Mexico to block GOP backed Congressional Redistricting. The fine amounts to $1,000 per Senator for every day they are absent from the Special Session.

If they hold out until the end of the session on August 26th, each of the 11 senators would have to pay $55,000 a piece.
