    by claiming falsely that a small portion of her speech was "not germaine" when she mentioned a previous bill about sonograms.

    Democrats then put forty a bevy of motions and an appeal to continue the filibuster to no avail.

    The Chair then called for a vote on the bill with about 15 minutes still on the clock.

    That's when the gallery went wild with chants of "Let her speak" and "Wendy, Wendy, Wendy" .

    They were so loud that the Chair and clerk could not proceed with the vote and at 12:00, the joint went wild as time for the special session expired.

    But wait, there's more. The Republicans falsified the computerized voting record to reflect that the vote took place on June 25, before the deadline at midnight. When called out on the falsification, they "sadly" admitted that bill had failed and the computer was changed back to show the vote happened on June 26.

    Wendy Davis is  a political goddess.
