Here is video of the RNC announcing the controversial convention rules to the floor of the convention (background here).

More from Buzz Feed:

Watch until about 2:39:00 when Speaker of the House John Boehner takes the podium and asks for a voice vote on the rules. The “nays” from the floor were at least as loud as the “yeas,” but Boehner approved the rules “without objection.”

What a joke. Apparently the Maine delegation has walked out of the convention.

Meanwhile, a North Dakota delegate texted me from the floor of the convention saying that they were instructed to chant “USA” (you can hear it during the video) to drown out the dissenters.
