Today's winner is a hapless politician from North Carolina.
Rep. Becky Carney, a five-term Democrat from Charlotte, burst into tears after mistakenly voting with Republicans to override Democratic Gov. Bev Perdue’s veto of the contentious legislation. The measure lifts the ban on hydraulic fracturing as a means for mining for natural gas.
Ms. Carney and other Democrats asked for a do-over, as is common when a member pushes the wrong button. But in this instance, Republicans said no. A change in Carney’s vote would have changed the outcome, which is against the House rules. But Ms. Carney asked for the rules to be suspended so she could change her vote, but got nowhere.

Embarrassing for her, particularly since hers was the deciding vote that put the measure 'over the top' to override the Governor's veto. I wonder what the punishment is for aiding and abetting the 'enemy' (a.k.a. 'Republicans') in that fashion? Will they make her vote Green for the next year as a carbon offset?
