Democrat Rep. Slotkin attacks Pelosi’s attempts to overturn contested House election

On regrettably rare occasions, the hypocrisy of a political leader becomes so blatant that even members of their own party have no choice but to take a stand against it.

This phenomenon is presenting itself as a growing crisis for House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s (D-CA) thanks to the increasing unwillingness among moderate Democrats – including Rep. Elissa Slotkin (D-MI) — to go along with her plan to overturn the results of a narrowly-decided Iowa congressional race and unseat the certified Republican winner, as Breitbart reports.

Slotkin’s stance comes in response to a plot afoot among certain House Democrats to upend the outcome of the 2nd Congressional District contest between the GOP’s Marianette Miller-Meeks and Democrat Rita Hart. Miller-Meeks’ victory came via a razor-thin six-vote margin but was certified by a state board following a formal recount, and she was provisionally sworn in back in January.

Subsequently, Hart filed an appeal to the House Committee on Administration, which did not dismiss the petition as Miller-Meeks requested but instead tabled it pending determination of procedures for receiving evidence and adjudicating the dispute, as National Review noted.

When asked if she could envision circumstances in which Miller-Meeks could indeed be unseated in favor of the Democrat, Pelosi replied, “I respect the work of the committee…we’ll see where that takes us,” further opining that “there could be a scenario to that extent.”

Slotkin, for her part, wants nothing to do with such a scheme, telling the Skullduggery podcast:

I’m sorry, I cannot support overturning an election, especially given everything that’s gone on and what we’ve been hearing from the Republican side of the aisle.

I mean, that’s their whole schtick. They attempted to delegitimize the results of the election and not certify those elections…

…I can’t turn around and vote to decertify something that’s been stamped and approved in Iowa.

The Michigan congresswoman is not alone among Democrats standing in opposition to Pelosi’s power grab, with Blue Dog Coalition member Rep. Lou Correa (D-CA) saying earlier this week, according to The Hill:

I want to see what compelling reasons there are for the feds to get involved in this.

I think these are issues that right now are probably best left at the state level.

Rep. Chris Pappas (D-NH) joined the chorus of Democrat resistance to the effort, saying on Monday, according to Breitbart:

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.

The removal of Rep. Miller-Meeks from Congress would constitute an act of the grossest hypocrisy from the same party that excoriated anyone who questioned the veracity of the 2020 presidential election, and for pushing back against it, Slotkin has – at least in this instance – done the commendable thing.

Google pay 390$ reliably my last paycheck was $55000 working 10 hours out of consistently on the web. My increasingly youthful kinfolk mate has been averaging 20k all through continuous months and he works around 24 hours reliably. I can’t trust how direct it was once I attempted it out. This is my essential concern…:) For more info visit any tab on this site Thanks a lot GOOD LUCK………._ http://www.works91.com

The 2020 election is a fraud, except Iowa in this instance. Everyone knows the Dems stole the Presidential election. The videos of the cheating were enormous. Many of those videos were removed. Dem judges didn’t want to deal with the truth. Welcome to the Banana Republic of the US that is evidenced by barbed wire, something banana republics do. Pelosi fits right in with Venezuela and the other countries that steal elections.

I agree this circus has to stop we will be taken over by Chinese if not and Biden has done nothing but lie and screw up and Harris will not answer a strait question she can only laugh she is not cabable of running a dollar store. I am so sick of this racism card which for 8 years was pushed by Biden. I am not a white supremist nor am I racist. There are good whites and black whites same as any other races. By den has not done one thing to help the Americans. We need to step up it is our money they are throwing away.

I really don’t know where this country is going to know that Pelosi wants the Democrats to have control I know Biden will take these illegal immigrants and put them in red states so when the next election comes they’ll all become Democrats and US citizens and vote democratically this is wrong wrong wrong what about the other phone people coming to this country that I have to wait for years to become a US citizen and go in front of a judge and answer the questions of history. I don’t know what happens to these reports if it ever gets read or printed. The American people need to come up with a solution about limited terms for a congress to me it seems like once they get into office they become instant millionaires I’m sure that the lobbyist paying them big bucks to vote certain ways and this is not right they should be voting for what their state wants them to vote for inland not pocket illegal monies from lobbyist I hate the way our government has to take bribes to get what they want. So American people will need to stand up for their rights and not let the leftist take over this country. It seems like we just sit back and let everything happen without taking a stance

Even a broken clock is right twice a day, that doesn’t mean it isn’t broken! The Democrat Party is broken. They are throwing out hundreds of years of precedent just to gain a few small victories. It really is mind boggling how they manage to look at themselves in the mirror and not see the fraud they are! Plus the damage to this country will be very difficult to undo. Simply the financial burden they have saddled taxpayers with is so extraordinary. Between the “covid relief” bill that has less than 9% to do with covid, and now they want to raise taxes? Oh and guess what else they lied about? The fact that no one who made less than $400,000 would see a tax increase under their plan. Now, they say “oh you misunderstood, we meant HOUSEHOLDs making less than $400,000 would not see a tax increase.” Talk about a bait and switch! Almost as bad as the Biden lie “if you vote in a Senate majority, you will get a $2000 check from us!” Now??? “Oh you misunderstood, we mean $2000 minus the $600 you got earlier this year.” SO let’s examine which administration gave us a bigger check? President Trump gave us $1200 + $600 = $1800. Biden? gave us $1,400. Which is $400 LESS than the Trump Administration. Now who cares more about everyday, average Americans?

Pelosi thinks she is a queen. Remember this evil old hag is third in line to the presidency and she has made sure that those that are before her are easily removed. Biden is mentally unfit from dementia, and Harris has some nasty scandals in her recent past, and is unpopular with the majority, so she can be tossed out. Then you will have Pelosi.
