I would just hazard a guess that for about half of these people it wouldn't be much of a challenge for a bounty hunter. I doubt many of these "lawmakers" have any idea about personal security or how to really drop off the grid.

I'll bet they used their own credit cards to pay for rooms/gas/food. I'll bet they're making calls on their own cell phones, calling numbers of known associates. Maybe using their own email accounts... Drove their own vehicles with OnStar or iPass or some such. Real bush-league stuff that the bounty hunter might spend all of an hour or two tracking down. The wildcard here is that these guys may have enough political support to have someone advising them, or who is providing monetary support so they can stay off the grid. But they only need to find/return a couple to reach a quorum, right?

That idea raises an interesting question. If they are using their own resources, they'd be childishly easy to track. If they are getting support from others though... Isn't that an example of a public servant accepting gifts? Aren't there laws/limits on that? Could these Senators be breaking that law while hiding out?

This poses as sort of questions of what laws they are breaking.

Now there are warrants out for them, if or when they are arrested and brought back, what is the charge?

Hoping to see a FELONY charge in there somewhere.

I heard yesterday that their auto deposit was canceled and that each Senator has to show up at the state house to get his/her check. And I’m wondering whether that pregnant senator is sneaking back to visit her OB/GYN.
