Why Was Abortion Vote Timestamp Changed?
Updated: Saturday, August 3 2013, 04:13 PM CDT
It was chaos in the capitol Tuesday night and early Wednesday morning as screaming protesters helped delay the vote on Senate Bill 5 after Sen. Wendy Davis's filibuster failed.
But as midnight came and went there was controversy over whether or not SB5 passed.
Political analyst Ross Ramsey says it all came down to minutes.
"It's like the last minute three pointer in a basketball game, everybody wanted to see the tape again, let's see exactly what happened," says Ramsey.
Officially the senate completed their vote on Wednesday, June 26, at 12:02 a.m.
If that's the case, why did Texas Senate's website change the timestamp record of the vote moments later?
Ramsey showed us a side by side shot of the website, before and after the date change.
"This one says the bill passed on the 26th, which would be Wednesday," he says. "That's the first one that went up."
Then just a few minutes later, the same website showed it passed on Tuesday, making the vote legitimate.
It's not an official record but it is a state government website.
We tried to find out why it changed.
First we went to the office of the Texas Secretary of the Senate, Patsy Spaw.
She wasn't available for an on camera interview but did refer us to the parliamentarian who then referred us to the legislature reference library.
No one could talk about the issue on record.
But a source inside the capitol told us the website is a reporting of actions and not done in real time.
It's common for information on the site to be adjusted and that no one was trying to manipulate the site.
