Corrected graph: GOP voting on Hastert rule violations

Apr 13 '13

Pardon last night’s coding error:  The following shows the corrected distribution of GOP votes on the three times the Hastert rule has been violated in the 113th Congress.  Yesterday’s graph was missing 9 GOP one-time vote defectors. The mistake doesn’t change the conclusion from yesterday’s post: When you add up the percentages, forty percent always voted with the GOP and sixty percent voted with the Democrats at least once (or twice or three times).
