Texas governor Greg Abbott has said that he can have arrested the Democrat politicians who refuse to allow a quorum to be formed, thereby blocking legislation. But can the Democratic politicians form a quorum with the Republicans and vote while they're still under arrest? Would they have to be released from arrest first, meaning they'd be free to avoid forming a quorum again by leaving the state again or by just not turning up?
