Conyers posts about today's events

Rep. Conyers, who organized today's hearing on the Downing Street Minutes, has just put up a blog post discussing his experiences.

One of the things he covers is how the Congress members were able to continue the hearings through floor votes:
"At approximately 2:15 PM, the Republicans scheduled 11 consecutive floor votes, lasting until approximately 4 PM. This is unprecedented in my memory, and if we had allowed it to, it could have ruined the hearing. But a hearty group of Democratic Members helped me carry on, and we were able to continue the hearings through the votes by essentially taking turns running back and forth to the House floor."
