The House Select Committee to Investigate the Voting Irregularities of August 2, 2007, met to investigate procedures used and followed during Roll Call Vote Number 814 on legislation on August 2, 2007. The incident was set off by a Republican motion to send the fiscal 2008 agriculture spending bill (HR 3161) back to committee with instructions to amend it to bar use of funds to employ or provide housing for illegal immigrants. The presiding officer at the time, Michael R. McNulty, ruled that the motion had been defeated, even though the chamber’s electronic tally board counted 215 votes for it and 213 against as the gavel fell. That prompted an outcry by Republicans. close
