Has Governor Abbott Been Bought Off by Dems? Texas Republicans Are Now Suing Him Over His Harsh COVID Restrictions

I am not sure what the heck has happened to Governor Abbott, but he’s gone off the COVID deep end.

He went from being very practical and reasonable to sounding more and more like my tyrannical governor here in Michigan.

And it happened over such a short span of time. I know I am not the only person wondering who is blackmailing Abbott into behaving like a certified liberal lunatic.

It’s gotten so bad that Republicans in Texas are now suing the governor over his tyrannical COVID restrictions – especially when they have such a low death rate in the state.

What gives?

Republicans in Texas have filed a number of lawsuits while sanctioning GOP Gov. Greg Abbott after he reimposed restrictions on businesses and other sectors of the economy after coronavirus cases reignited across the state.

The suits come as critics of Abbott’s actions note that despite major increases in the number of coronavirus positives across the state, the vast majority of them involve patients who are asymptomatic or suffering mild conditions. They also note that the coronavirus death rate in Texas is remarkably low.

A suit filed last week in Travis County District Court by Houston GOP activist Steven Hotze, former Republican state Rep. Rick Green, former chair of the Republican Party of Texas Cathie Adams and two Houston business owners argue that Abbott’s orders, as well as the law that gave him the authority to issue them, violate the state constitution.

The suit, filed by Jared Woodfill, an attorney in Houston and chair of the Harris County Republican Party who has previously challenged Abbott’s orders, sought a temporary restraining order as well as a permanent injunction.

“Today a mask, tomorrow a hazmat suit — where does it stop? Everyday GA-29 is in effect, the government tramples on the liberties of Texans,” he said in challenging Abbott’s face mask mandate.

Abbott’s order took effect a week ago. He also extended his previous emergency order shutting or limiting businesses another 30 days as of July 10.

Abbott is going to help kill the economy with this nonsense he’s pulling.

It’s so unlike him, you have to seriously wonder what the hell is going on here?
