This combination of screen shots from cell phone video shows two views of the Texas Legislature's computer system Wednesday, June 26, 2013, that recorded a vote on an abortion restrictions bill after the end of a special session in Austin, Texas. Democrats said that it was past midnight and that the session had expired and the bill was dead. Republicans said that the vote was valid because they had started at 11:59 p.m. Some reporters, including those working for The Associated Press, checked the computer system to see what day the votes were registered. When the votes first appeared, the date next to them, top, read "6/26/2013." Moments later other reporters opened the same record, bottom, and the date read "6/25/2013." Democratic senators protested but Republicans refused to answer questions about the change. (AP Photo/Jim Vertunno) less
