Passes 255 to 67, with 17 Democratic defections. The rest of the Democrats staged a walkout. In comments:
65/193 Democrats = 33%, meaning that two thirds of House Democrats were not willing to go on record as defending Holder. That seems to me to be a bad sign for the administration.
And yes, I believe that the “walking out in protest” stunt was nothing more than a convenient excuse to avoid being on the voting record as protecting Holder. In addition to being a massive abdication of their duty to their constituents.
