Not Every Democrat Rep. is Going to Be in DC

11/7/18 KXAN:
AUSTIN (KXAN) — A re-election celebration is underway in Pod 2 of the Montgomery County Jail after inmate number 232573 claimed victory in Texas House District 27. That inmate is known as Rep. Ron Reynolds, D-Missouri City, to the people on the outside. 
Reynolds was unopposed in the race for District 27 and the latest vote totals show Reynolds garnered 47,305 votes in Tuesday's election. 
Reynolds was booked into the county jail on Sept. 7. He's serving a year-long sentence after a 2015 conviction on five misdemeanor counts of using a middleman to chase ambulances in order to solicit clients for Reynolds’ law firm.
Whoops!  He is a member of the Texas House of Representatives, not the U.S. House.

Ron Reynolds is a TX state representative, so he wouldn't be going to Washington anyway.

The article was not clear on that. Darn!

Does the Texas assembly require someone be present in order to vote? If he can't be let out on parole or escorted by guards to go to the Capital, can he properly and fully serve, or even be sworn in?
