Moderate House Dem pushes back against Pelosi’s attempt to overturn Iowa election

Despite their insistence that anyone who dared question the veracity of the 2020 presidential election results was either unpatriotic at best or treasonous at worst, Democrats in the House are now in the process of attempting to overturn the outcome of an Iowa congressional race and unseat the certified Republican victor.

However, moderate Democrat Rep. Lou Correa (CA) expressed reservations on Thursday about the wisdom of further efforts to upend the results in Iowa’s 2nd Congressional District race, in an admirable – and unfortunately rare – act of rebellion against the wishes of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), as Breitbart reported.

The congressman’s actions come in response to recent developments in the case of Republican Rep. Mariannette Miller-Meeks (IA) who defeated Democrat Rita Hart in November by a margin of just six votes, but whose win was certified by a state board following a recount, as the Des Moines Register reported.

Despite that verification of the outcome, Hart initiated a challenge with the House Committee on Administration, claiming that her campaign knew of an additional 22 voters who legally cast ballots that were not ultimately counted, according to Fox News.

When Miller-Meeks – who was provisionally sworn into Congress on Jan. 3 – filed a motion to have Hart’s petition dismissed, the House committee decided instead to table the request and seek input from both sides of the dispute to determine “procedures, legal principles and timelines” to be used in moving the matter forward, as National Review reported.

Speaker Pelosi (D-CA) weighed in on the situation immediately afterward, telling reporters that she could envision a situation in which Miller-Meeks could indeed be unseated in favor of Hart, saying:

I respect the work of the committee…we’ll see where that takes us. There could be a scenario to that extent.

For his part, however, Rep. Correa queried why Congress would even be getting involved in “something that should be a state issue,” adding:

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.

The congressman’s stance was opposed by Democrat colleague Rep. Jared Golden (ME) who previously excoriated former President Donald Trump for having questioned the results of the November election, saying with regard to the Iowa race:

My instinct is that on these types of things, it’s always best to count every vote, look under every stone. I think it’s best for either the incumbent or the challenger to allow the process to go as far as there are legal options to do so.

Regrettably, as they prove time and time again in a seemingly endless number of ways, if it weren’t for double standards, the Democrats would have no standards at all.
