The Washington Post reports:
The Texas Democratic Party is calling on Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Tex.) to resign after unverified photos surfaced on social media purportedly showing him traveling to Cancun, Mexico, as millions of Texas residents were without power amid blackouts from the freezing weather. “Texans are dying and you’re on a flight to Cancun,” the Texas Democrats said in a tweet late Wednesday night, adding the hashtag “#TedCruzRESIGN.”
Cruz is apparently racing back to Texas this morning to face what will surely be phalanx of reporters at the airport. Among the hashtags trending on Twitter at this writing at #FlyingTed, #FledCruz, and #HasTedLandedYet.
Here’s the upgrade list for this afternoon’s flight from Cancun to Houston.
That’s assuming that “cru, r” is him. And I do. pic.twitter.com/CqfKa5rJfG

When you take a vacation while your constituents are without power or water and freezing to death that’s called a Ted Cruise.
