“CBS This Morning with Kathleen Sullivan,” Tuesday, February 6, 1990, Extension Of Remarks, (WED).

“Dornan to Announce Presidential Bid,” Thursday, April 6, 1995, Special Order, (RKD). (Note: More than half of RKD’s remarks were extemporaneous; difficult to keep him on a script.)

“Motion for Adjournment,” Monday, February 6, 1989, floor vote (WED). (Note: After weeks of campaigning to defeat a congressional pay raise and promising that the vote to reject a motion to adjourn was a rejection of the pay raise, Congressman Tony Coelho offered the motion to adjourn, and WED called for the yeas and nays – the motion to adjourn was defeated 238-88.)

“Disapproving Increases in Executive, Legislative, and Judicial Salaries Recommended by the President,” H.J. Res 129, Tuesday, February 7, 1989, floor remarks and vote to reject the pay raise (WED). (Note: WED outsmarted Speaker Jim Wright and the congressional pay raise was defeated.)

“National Endowment of the Arts (NEA) debate on passage of Interior Department funding,” Tuesday, September 24, 1991, floor vote (WED). (Note: Called the “Corn for Porn” tradeoff, a few Midwest Republicans switched votes to protect agriculture subsidies Democratic leadership had threatened to take away, and the final vote passed 213-204, a switch of 5 votes is all we needed. It was the closest the NEA ever has come to losing its funding for producing obscenity.)
