Democracy or Dictatorship

More from the most "ethical Congress in history."

Powerline has a developing story about Democrats continuing to vote on an agricultre bill AFTER the gavel.

While voting on a motion to recommit for the agricultural appropriations legislation, the presiding chair (who is a Democrat member) gaveled the vote closed. The tally was clear and the
vote was over. The Republicans had won. Then, realizing what had happened - the
Dems allowed just their people to keep voting to change the result. Let's be
clear, this wasn't holding the vote open - they changed the results of a vote
that was legally declared over.

Rep Eric Cantor has more here and Politico here
