Who Were the 39 Democrats Who Voted to Stay In Session?
October 3, 2010 • 10:55AM

When the House voted Sept. 29 to adjourn after completing some business not including Glass-Steagall, Squeaker Pelosi was forced to cast a rare vote to break a tie, and the motion was voted up by 210 to 209. Qualified observers said that LaRouche and Glass-Steagall had come within one vote of winning, and were astounded; they confirmed that Glass-Steagall was the real issue behind the vote, especially for the Democrats, contrary to most media accounts.

The 209 votes against adjournment consisted of all Republicans, plus 39 Democrats, as follows, as published in Wednesday's issue of The Hill, but organized by state:
