In bombshell news, it appears that Nancy Pelosi has been named as a defendant in federal court. Pelosi is desperately trying to play it cool, but the latest developments clearly have her rattled.
Her arch-rival, House Minority leader Kevin McCarthy, just made a Pelosi-like play by suing the Speaker in Federal court over her unconstitutional power grab, proxy voting.
News outlets report:
House Republicans will sue Democrats to block a plan to permit proxy voting on the House floor, aides to Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy announced Tuesday.
“Giving your vote as a member of Congress to another person is just simply not allowed and not envisioned in the Constitution,” House GOP leadership aides said Tuesday…
Republicans have named as defendants in the case Speaker Nancy Pelosi, a California Democrat who pushed the rules change through the House with only Democratic votes earlier this month. Republicans have also named House Clerk Cheryl Johnson and Sergeant-at-Arms Paul D. Irving.
McCarthy is 100% right. Pelosi is literally stealing the representation of millions of Americans.
If elected representatives refused to do their job in Washington, that’s not an excuse for Pelosi to “vote” for them. If they aren’t in Congress, their votes don’t count. Period.
Pelosi, for her part, tried to play off the charges, saying that the lawsuit was a “sad stunt.”
No Speaker Pelosi. Your attempt to disenfranchise voters is the stunt – and a dangerous one at that.
