For real this time. No CNN-like mistake. Looks like a number of Democrats are walking out. Result shortly.
Passes 255 to 67, with 17 Democratic defections. There was one GOP defection to vote against the contempt resolution. One member voted present. Many Democrats did not vote.

UPDATE: Final vote count here. Glad to see Reps. Altmire and Critz, both Pennsylvania Democrats, voting yes.
