For anybody who might feel compelled for some reason to put themselves through that whole thing, Sen. Ted Cruz has come to the rescue on constitutional grounds:
SEVEN hours. The Eighth Amendment to the Constitution provides, “Excessive bail shall not be required, nor excessive fines imposed, nor cruel and unusual punishments inflicted.” https://t.co/vaCuAzWRZJ

Whew! That’s good to know.
Totally a violation of the 8th.
SEVEN HOURS? Who is going to watch this?!

Ten candidates flying to New York City specifically for a town hall on the threat posed by fossil fuel emissions can’t help matters either.
