Demetria Smith, a black West Houston resident, spoke in favor of Election Integrity, which is now being debated at the Texas legislature as Republicans are expected to pass one or more election integrity bills. Smith obliterated the Democrats during her impassioned speech at the Committee on Elections at the Texas state Capitol on April 1.
This video of Smith’s speech from April was obtained by NATIONAL FILE. Republicans are fighting to pass election protection bills, but Democrats even walked off the floor of the state House recently to postpone a vote on the bill. Governor Greg Abbott then de-funded the state legislature and forced the Democrats to come back to work for a special session to get the bill passed.
