Ted Cruz Rips PolitiFact Over ‘False’ Rating After Texas Supreme Court Ruling

Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) excoriated the Texas House Democrats for leaving town.

After the Texas Supreme Court backed the play to bring Democrats back, Cruz hinted physical force could be used bring them back to chambers.

PolitiFact gave his claim a “False” rating, which sent Cruz out to set the record straight.

Clear Legal Authority

I can say with extreme confidence that few members of Congress are as well educated on the law as Senator Cruz.

That confidence goes up tenfold when we are specifically talking about our Constitution and the laws in the state of Texas.

After arrest warrants were issued for the rogue Democrats, Cruz hinted that perhaps “leg irons” and “handcuffs” should be used to bring the Democrats back to House chambers.

PolitiFact and Democrats took issue with this.

In addition to PolitiFact’s false rating, Democratic state Rep. Vikki Goodwin stated, “I just question whether [the Texas Department of Public Safety] or anyone can break down my door to come and put me in shackles and drag me there.

“I feel certain that I can stay in my home, and stay off the House floor.”

To back up his statement, Cruz cited a 1988 precedent in Oregon where a legislator was returned by force.

He then sent out this tweet…

Personally, I would love to see the leg irons and handcuffs strapped on the Democrats and have them paraded through the front door of the state House.

It would be the perfect ending to one of the most ludicrous publicity stunts I have ever seen in politics.
