Nancy Pelosi allows Dems diagnosed with COVID-19 to travel to D.C. to cast votes for House Speaker

The mainstream media was quick to attack and cry “superspreader!” every time President Donald Trump or his allies held an event during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Those same standards are apparently not applied to Democratic politicians, as House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) just allowed Democrat colleagues that had been diagnosed with COVID-19 to break quarantine over the weekend in order to show up to the House for a chance to vote for the Speaker of the 117th Congress. 

Of course, Pelosi’s reign as House Speaker was in serious jeopardy, given the razor-thin majority held by House Democrats, coupled with the fact that members are not allowed to cast virtual votes for the Speakership vote.

Pelosi gave the green light for three House members — two Democrats and one Republican — who were in quarantine, to show up for the physical vote, although they conducted their voting activities in a separate chamber on Sunday.

Adding to the outrage over her decision, which was clearly self-serving, the Speaker allowed Rep. Gwen Moore (D-WI) to attend for the in-person vote, even though just six days earlier she announced that she had tested positive for COVID-19.

“Nancy Pelosi’s grip on the speakership is so tenuous that she is forcing members exposed to coronavirus to break quarantine and come to the Capitol to vote for her and protect her political power,” one senior GOP aide reportedly told Breitbart.

The aide wasn’t exaggerating, either. According to ABC News, Pelosi only managed to squeak out the narrowest of victories, garnering 216 votes to House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy’s (R-CA) 209 votes, making it embarrassingly clear that Pelosi was willing to break COVID-19 protocol simply to prevent a Republican from becoming Speaker in a Democrat-controlled House.

The California lawmaker was further criticized for the optics of allowing quarantined and COVID-19 positive lawmakers to attend the vote, given that just a week ago, 41-year-old Congressman-elect Luke Letlow died as a result of complications from COVID-19.

If roles were reversed and a Republican Speaker would have made the same careless decision, the mainstream media would already be calling for their resignation. But since it’s Pelosi, it’ll likely be a news story that never sees the light of day.

She may well have been clear by Pelosi physicians but unless this representative has a home in DC, she traveled from Wisconsin to get to DC. And how did she travel with Covid positive test to get to DC ?? If she flew, if she drove, if she walked she was exposing others to the disease !! What a bunch of hypocrites…..

You mean Crazy Mazie Hirono. She has such a high esteem for herself it is ridiculous. She claims that she knows more than anyone else about what is right for America. Just another corrupt Democrat know-it-all.

The people get the government they vote for. Legitimately, or not. Once they are truly exposed for what they are, the evil will be driven out of our land and purged from existence.

Quarantine is quarantine plain and simple – even if you are a member of Congress you DIONOT get time off from it because the Speaker of the House wants you to come to Washington to vote to keep her in the position of Speaker of the House. I call BS on this.

It really doesn’t make a lot of difference what anybody says, THE QUEEN HAS SPOKEN !!! Pelosi ALWAYS gets HER WAY !!! Whether her actions were legal or illegal is of NO consequence, she is a liberal and everybody knows that liberals are above the law !!! We MUST have OUR lawmakers find a way to invoke TERM LIMITS ON ALL ELECTED GOVERNMENT OFFICIALS !!! The longer anybody is allowed to keep the same elected position, the more possibility of criminal activity there is !!

This pisses me off. I tried to get a doctor appointment yesterday and was told I had to have a covid test before I could see him, that was the new rule. They don’t want to have sick people mingle with healthy people. I thought you went to the doc because you were sick? I have had 4 covid test and all were negative. I am on an inhaler that says a possible effect could be a sore throat. That is what I have but they think I might have covid. I actually got a little mad at my doctors nurse because they know my condition, what I have and there are side effects with the drugs I’m on.
Now I have to wait 14 days before I can se him. I am so sick and tired of all the covid BS. And she lets those with covid just come on down.rthornon

Nazi in Congress She needs removed from Congress. Has held the Nation hostage for political gain. She and others must be held to a higher level in truth and being for the Country not themselves. Pelosi, AOC, Schumer and others need removed at once. They have helped with the fraud in this election.
