Leftist Mob Prevents Texas Senate From Voting On Late-Term Abortion Bill, Killing It For A Year

Unruly Democrat Mob Prevents Texas Lawmakers From Voting On Late-Term Abortion Bill, Killing It For A Year – Gateway Pundit

Democrats LOVE their late-term abortions. It’s who they are.

The AP reported:

Despite barely beating a midnight deadline, hundreds of jeering protesters helped stop Texas lawmakers from passing one of the toughest abortion measures in the country.

As the protesters raised the noise to deafening levels in the Texas Senate chamber late Tuesday, Republicans scrambled to gather their colleagues at the podium for a stroke-of-midnight vote.

“Get them out!” Sen. Donna Campbell shouted to a security guard, pointing to the thundering crowd in the gallery overhead that had already been screaming for more than 10 minutes.

“Time is running out,” Campbell pleaded. “I want them out of here!”

It didn’t work. The noise never stopped and despite barely beating the midnight end-of-session deadline with a vote to pass the bill, Lt. Gov. David Dewhurst said the chaos in the chamber prevented him from formally signing it before the deadline passed, effectively killing it.

Dewhurst denounced the protesters as an “unruly mob.” Democrats who urged them on called the outburst democracy in action.

First-Grade Teacher Faked Incurable Disease For A Year So She Could Play Hooky

First-Grade Teacher Faked Incurable Disease For A Year So She Could Play Hooky – Daily Caller

A first-grade teacher in Polk County, Florida has admitted that she told school officials that both she and her father were dying of a terminal disease so that she could take a number of days off.

Laurel Elementary School teacher Ashley Barker managed to perpetuate what must have been an elaborate tapestry of lies for a year, reports Orlando ABC-affiliate WFTV.

School officials aren’t saying how many days Barker skipped. However, over the course of the year, she sent 120 emails to her bosses, who say they accommodated her many requests. They frequently allowed her to take days off and to leave work early.

Eventually, school officials became skeptical of the cockamamie ruse, reports Bay News 9 out of St Petersburg. After investigators concluded that Barker’s heart-wrenching tale was purely fiction, they confronted her.

According to WFTV, the teacher confessed that neither she nor her father had any incurable illness. Moreover, she confessed that she had spent the time off just sitting at home.

Parents who have children at the school expressed shock at Barker’s audacity.

“Wow. That’s kind of scary,” parent Ralie Ortiz told WFTV. “If she lies about that, she can lie about anything.”

Meanwhile, students called Barker a good teacher.

“I like to read with her,” first-grader Steven Rodriguez told Bay News 9. “That was the best.”

Local journalists could not reach Barker for comment.

The Polk County Schools superintendent has recommended that Barker should be fired. However, the shifty teacher is contesting her dismissal. Her case will receive a formal hearing in front of a judge.

Barker, a teacher with the school district since 2011, has been suspended without pay until the judge determines her fate.

In the meantime, notes Bay News 9, a substitute teacher is teaching Barker’s first-grade class.
