The House votes on Representative Sean Maloney's (D-NY) amendment, which failed 212-213 after several members changed their votes as the vote was held open past the expired time. Members shout "shame" as the number of "ayes" drop, followed by a parliamentary inquiry from House Minority Whip Steny Hoyer (D-MD).

The amendment in question deals with President Obama's executive order that forbids federal contractors from discriminating against employees based on gender identity. close
