This video is recording from a live stream on USTREAM straight from inside the capitol building in Texas directly after the gallery was cleared from the senate room. See the USTREAM here: http://www.ustream.tv/channel/christo...

What the guy in the video refers to is this, photo evidence that the Texas senate tried to rig the passing of a bill that would put even more restriction on women's right to abort a pregnancy in the state of Texas. Even without that photo evidence, the way the actual debate over the bill was carried out on live stream on YouTube (with over 183,000 people watching at it's peak!) screamed of an obvious Rep. agenda to pass that bill no matter what.

After Sen. Wendy Davis' long day spent fighting for women's right of choice for almost 13 hours only to have her filibuster ended over blatantly false claims, Sen. Watson attempted to debate/appeal the move to end the filibuster. On the live stream, the filibuster never officially ended as the vote was not taken to the body as was stated would occur to decide whether to suspend the filibuster, due to Watson stepping in to debate. This led to 2 hours of constant back and forth between senators and Sen. Davis was still seen standing almost an hour after she was stopped from speaking further. The gallery also played a part in this debate as twice observed, there was chanting and shouting and cheering -- something the Reps then used as an excuse to illegally claim that a vote took place after midnight Texas time (CDT). I can tell you that no vote took place before midnight, and that is what they FIRST claimed and what news outlets had already begun reporting.

***2:27 AM TEXAS TIME: On the live stream at http://www.ustream.tv/channel/christo... from within the Texas capitol building it was just announced only minutes ago that the bill is officially dead!
