Anti-fracking campaigner accidentally legalises it by mistakenly pressing the wrong button as she voted
[link to www.dailymail.co.uk]

A North Carolina state representative says she voted mistakenly to override the governor's veto of a bill to allow the shale gas exploration called 'fracking' after a late-night vote in the General Assembly.

Democratic Rep. Becky Carney of Charlotte said she pushed the green 'yes' button at her desk Monday night to override Democratic Gov. Beverly Perdue's veto of the measure that would allow shale gas exploration, before realizing she wanted to vote red, or 'no.'

After pushing the wrong button, Rep Carney could be heard saying, ‘Oh my gosh, I pushed green.’

She was told she couldn't change her vote because this would have altered the outcome.

According to Raleigh Durham’s WRAL, the Democrat turned her light on, but was not recognised by Speaker Thom Tillis and went down on the floor to speak with him.

Her 'yes' vote made the tally 72-47 - just above the 60 per cent required to override in the Republican-controlled Legislature.
