So the Republican Party in Texas is unhappy with Governor Abbott. So they censured him.
I have complained ad nauseum that the political parties have too much freakin’ power.
First the Republican legislature sued the Governor of Wisconsin for exercising too much power during a pandemic and the Wisconsin Supreme Court agreed.
In Texas, Republican Governor Abbott used his emergency powers to order masks for all people in Texas and the Republican Party went nuts and censured him. For Failing to Be Republican While being a Governor!
The Ector County Republican Party voted Saturday to censure Gov. Greg Abbott, accusing him of overstepping his authority in responding to the coronavirus pandemic, while state Sen. Charles Perry, R-Lubbock, called for a special session so lawmakers could have a say in how Texas proceeds amid soaring caseloads.
The party executive committee in Ector County, home to Odessa, passed the censure resolution 10-1, with one abstention and three voting members who were not present, according to the chairperson, Tisha Crow. She said she was among those who supported the resolution, which accuses Abbott of violating five party principles related to his exercise of executive power during the pandemic.
