Tucker called for a vote on the bill. As members pushed their buttons and the voting board lit up, Tucker turned to one of the House aids and asked, "What does the amendment do?" The aid appeared to shrug her shoulders. Next the Speaker looked down and saw the vote, 99-0 in favor, and announced that the bill had passed.

A few minutes later the House adjourned for the day, with most members oblivious to what had just happened.
