19. This

sounds a lot like what happened in the Wisconsin legislature some years ago when the Democrats, led by their then minority leader, walked out so the Repugs wouldn't have a quorum for some funny business they were trying to pull. They went across the state line to Illinois. IIRC the Speaker of the House tried to send the sheriff after them but he was a Democrat and wouldn't go. Then he tried to send the Capitol police, but they didn't have any jurisdiction. The governor of Illinois supported the Democrats of Wisconsin. It was hilarious. I knew the Democratic Minority Leader and a couple of other members. They never did give in.
