From the Texas Tribune liveblog:

LIVEBLOG

12:43 a.m. BY BECCA AARONSON

12:02 a.m. — that's the time state Sen. John Whitmire, D-Houston, says the Senate timestamp shows a vote taken on Senate Bill 5. If that's true, the vote may not withstand legal scrutiny.

"It's pretty conclusive that it didn't pass," said Whitmire. The Senate still has not officially adjourned sine die, although the special session legally ends at midnight. When Senators resume floor proceedings, Whitmire said Democrats will call a point of order on the motion to vote on a bill after the midnight deadline. 

12:39 a.m. BY BRANDI GRISSOM
Sen. Dan Patrick, R-Houston: "I'm informed [SB5] passed 19-10." He said the vote started before midnight.
"Things got out of control and they shouldn't have gotten out of control," Patrick said.
Sen. Juan "Chuy" Hinojosa, D-McAllen, interrupts Patrick surrounded by reporters and says the vote happened after midnight.
"The whole process was rigged and the vote didn't happen until after midnight."
Meanwhile, the crowd has been cleared from the Senate gallery but continues to cheer and shout in the Capitol halls.
12:35 a.m. BY JAY ROOT
Sen. Kirk Watson, D-Austin: "I don't think people knew what they were voting on if a vote was taken."

Sen. Judith Zaffirini, D-Laredo: "We don't know what happened because we couldn't hear anything."
12:31 a.m. BY BECCA AARONSON

It's still unclear the exact time that the Senate voted and approved Senate Bill 5 — and whether that vote is valid.

"There will be people who see things as they see them...I think its fair to say this is not the way the Senate should do its business," state Sen. Dan Patrick, R-Houston, told the press. He blamed the outburst in the gallery for disrupting the Senate's processes. "The people can't come and create so much of a ruckus that we can't do our job," he said.

Standing next to Patrick, state Sen. Juan 'Chuy' Hinojosa, D-McAllen, agreed that this is not the way the Senate should conduct its business. But he said the Senate should not be allowed to approve a bill during a special session past the midnight deadline, at which point, the session should be concluded.

"We didn't even know we were voting," said Hinojosa, adding that the Republican senators knew they were voting, but he and other Democrats were off the side holding up their cell phones at the time to show the press that it was past midnight. "How can we call a vote if we can't hear?" he asked.

12:27 a.m. BY BECCA AARONSON

When the clock struck midnight, Republican senators were gathered around the dais attempting to vote on Senate Bill 5. It's still unclear whether they were successful.

The protesters seated in the gallery erupted roughly 10 minutes before midnight, and screamed so loudly that the floor proceedings couldn't be heard.

State Sen. Dan Patrick, R-Houston, told the press, "we started voting before midnight," and therefore, it counted. But state Sen. Royce West, D-Dallas, said, "the session is over with...it's over with at midnight," and so, the vote didn't count.

Do they know that they were live on Youtube? And that a hundred thousand people were watching? And therefore that a hundred thousand people saw them violate the laws that they were elected to uphold?

I don't think they knew that. Meh, I am spent. Bonne nuit.
