Gary, you are correct in the context of parliamentary procedure but not in ordinary English or grammar.  "Motioned" is also a verb (past tense).  For instance, if you were parliamentarian and you gave the chair of the meeting a hand signal to confer with you on whether the motion is in order, you "motioned" the chair to confer with you.
