One GOP senator drew laughter when he accidentally voted "yea" before catching himself and voting "nay" on the passage of an immigration reform bill on Thursday.

Sen. Jerry Moran, R-Kan., later tweeted a clarification: "To clear up any confusion, I voted against the Senate immigration bill. Here’s why."

The link goes to Moran's official Senate website, where he provides a lengthy explanation.

"Americans want Congress to fix our flawed immigration system the right way – and fix it for good," he says on his site. "Unfortunately, this bill that the Congressional Budget Office estimates would only reduce the number of illegal immigrants by 25 percent does not meet that standard."
