Nancy Pelosi is creating huge problems for her own party with her radical ideas.
But she’s not listening to any rational voices.
Nancy Pelosi hit the roof when she heard what Democrats are saying behind her back.
Last year, Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi took every vote so seriously that she accused Republican lawmakers of being “domestic enemies” because of their opposition to universal mail-in voting.
Back in August of 2020 she told MSNBC, “The Russians were there and they are there now 24/7 trying to interfere in our election, but they’re not the only ones,” Pelosi said. “We take an oath to protect and defend the Constitution from all enemies, foreign and domestic. And sadly, the domestic enemies to our voting system and our honoring of the Constitution are right at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue with their allies in the Congress of the United States.”
Yet now Pelosi is trying to interfere in an election herself.
She has signaled her support of overturning the election result of Iowa’s 2nd Congressional District, which saw Rep. Mariannette Miller-Meeks (R) beat out Rita Hart by a total of six votes.
By her own standard that would make her a “domestic enemy,” and many Democrats are opposed to the measure and are even openly voicing their disapproval to the measure.
Rep. Chris Pappas (D-NH) said, “This election result was certified by the State of Iowa and Rep. Miller-Meeks was sworn in nearly three months ago…it’s time to move on.”
“Losing a House election by six votes is painful for Democrats,” Rep. Dean Phillips (D-MN) wrote on Twitter. “But overturning it in the House would be even more painful for America. Just because a majority can, does not mean a majority should.”
“I want to see what compelling reasons there are for the feds to get involved in this,” Rep. Lou Correa (D-CA) told CNN. “I think these are issues that right now are probably best left at the state level.”
One House Democrat, who wished to remain anonymous, told The Hill, “It strikes me as remarkably hypocritical and a dangerous precedent at a time we need to be repairing precedents.”
A second House Democrat told the outlet, “As painful as it was to lose this election by six votes, and although I sympathize with Rita Hart, the state certified these election results. Upending them at this point would only serve to further divide the country.”
Rep. David Price (D-NC) told Fox News that there was “not the slightest chance” that the race would be overturned and that he has “confidence that all sides of that House Administration Committee process are well aware of how sensitive and how difficult this is.”
