African American Dem activist group in Texas think some of their leaders get picked on by the rest of the Dem Party. Some Dems cracked back and said too bad - some Dems say criticism is fair. Talking about state legislative matters. Okee Dokee.
Anglo Dem legislator missed key vote a couple of days ago. So did African American Dem. So did Latino Dem. Dems lost by one vote. According to the Chron, Anglo Dem legislator was on his way to a national legislative conference in Rhode Island. According to American Statesman, African American Dem was in France. Hardly an emergency absence. Betcha if the African American Dem legislator was the only one to take a travel day and miss a key vote, "some Dems" would be piling on. Because an Anglo Dem was involved, think "some Dems" will keep their pieholes shut. African American Dem activist group might have a point.
