Watch Footage of Last Night's Shocking Wisconsin Senate End-Run

 Watch the scene within the Capitol legislative chambers last night as Assembly Minority Leader Peter Barca, a Democrat, was denied in his attempts motion during the last-minute Senate meeting to push past the bill that would strip collective bargaining rights.

Later, he explained to the cameras why he thought the move by his opponents was illegal and immoral.

"They are so eager to take away the rights that people in this state have enjoyed for 50 years that they've trampled on democracy," Barca said.
