Pelosi says House may decide contested Congressional race

Most of the post-election attention has been focused on President Donald Trump and his legal teams’ efforts to prove allegations of widespread fraud, but there’s another spicy situation developing in the state of New York with a contested congressional race that could go where no race has gone since 1985.

The Washington Examiner reported that the fate of a race between two candidates fighting for New York’s 22nd Congressional District seat could end up, according to U.S. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), in the hands of the House Administration Committee.

New York Democratic Rep. Anthony Brindisi and former New York Republican Rep. Claudia Tenney have both experienced something of a rollercoaster ride of winning and losing over the past several weeks as the ballot counting continued in the heavily-blue state.

Taking a step back to set the stage, it all began on the night of November 3, when Brindisi found himself trailing Tenney by some 28,422 votes. But in the following days, Tenney’s lead quickly disappeared as 60,000 mail-in ballots were counted, shrinking Tenney’s lead to just 100 votes.

Given the razor-thin margin, both campaigns sought legal intervention to decide the fate of over 2,000 absentee and affidavit ballots. A resulting recount situation gave Brindisi a 12-vote lead. Even crazier, several days later, another recount gave Tenney a 12-vote lead.

Pelosi touched on the subject, which was focused on a somewhat similar situation in Iowa, where a congressional race appears to be headed for review in the House. Pelosi remarked on the New York situation, saying that while it will likely end up in court again, it “may” end up in the House for a final decision.

“In New York, there could be 1,500, 5,000 votes not counted yet. So, that is going to the court Monday. And we’ll see what happens in the court. That may end up in the House. I don’t know, but the court will decide which votes will be counted,” Pelosi said.

According to an earlier report from the Washington Examiner, the last time a race ended up in the House for a final decision was in 1984, a situation nicknamed the “Bloody Eighth”, where a nasty fight developed that eventually led to the Democrat-controlled House declaring the Democratic candidate the winner.

  1. President Trump won the election without a doubt. Biden, Obama, and many others are going to prison or the gallows!

    1. Probably not in our life time 尹
      Can we hope that Pelosi and any of her comrades would ever be on the truth side ???
      NEVER !!!

    2. Nancy Pelosi needs to stop blocking Americans lives & Futures from progressing for the better, her bad karma is going to get her very soon by the hand of God he is coming after all elected officials he is going to drain the swamp now & she can not play games with God

  2. Sounds like another well planned out fraud, stealing vote. The demos just don’t know how to be honest. Every election from this year needs to be cancelled and a new election done and must be in person with photo ID.

        1. I agree that the swing states where Trump was way ahead on election night should have a runoff election. This alone would result in his win. I think that there was fraud in all states but as long as we get Trump into office, he can address these issues.

  3. I would care less if I picked up the morning paper and read that Nancy Pelosi caught the coronavirus with a terminal result. Or got run over by a drunk driver like roadkill… Good riddance!

  4. voter ID with random numbers and left thumb print and only the card reader at to voting place or the person that owns the card can see the number and the left thumb print has to be scan when finished voting and if you do it at home a special ink on the paper that will record the thumb print, and the thumb print has to be on the card so the machine can verify that the correct person is voting.

  5. In Alabama we voted with a photo ID which was connected to a computer to see if our signatures were the same as on file. It was a lot quicker doing it this way. If there was any fraud, didn’t hear about it.

  6. Federal elections are based on rules set out in the constitution. If a decision in an election must be adjudicated by a third party it must be done by the Supreme Court of the United States Not house Democrats who have proved many times over that they are corrupt and cannot be trusted to render a fair decision.

  7. Nancy Pelosi should be charged with Treason against America! Holding much needed $$$$$ from We the People during a pandemic.

  8. SURELY THE WASTED GOP, WON’T LET THIS HAPPEN AGAIN IN GEORGIA IN THE SENATE RACE? I HOPE THAT THE BALLOTS THIS TIME, WILL BE WATCHED WITH ALL EYES ON THE PEOPLE DOING THE ACTUAL COUNTING OF BALLOTS. THE DEMS MAY BE BAD NEWS FOR AMERICA, BUT AL LEAST THEY DO STICK TOGETHER, WHICH IS MORE THAN I SAY FOR THE GOP, FULL OF RINOS. THEY ARE IKE A BUNCH OF ROTTEN BANANAS.

  9. Agree with all points! BUT it should NOT go to the house! We all know Piglosi would skew the decision in the demonrats favor. Take it to the court, IF the court could be trusted to make a fair judgement! Depends upon how many demonrat judges would be deciding! And yes, a re vote should be done, paper ballots only with valid voter I.d. And a thumb print to be sure. NO mail in ballots, no ballots counted if not in by close of the polls! That is fair.
