Nancy Pelosi failed

The Speaker of the House made an effort to steal GOP House Rep. Mariannette Miller-Meeks’s seat went down in the hill. Believe it or not, Democratic challenger Rita Hart withdrew her challenge.

Miller-Meek won the district in Iowa by 6 votes. Hart asked Pelosi for help. She wanted Miller-Meeks’ seat.

“I have made the decision to withdraw my contest before the House Committee on Administration,” Hart announced on Wednesday.

“Despite our best efforts to have every vote counted, the reality is that the toxic campaign of political disinformation to attack this constitutional review of the closest congressional contest in 100 years has effectively silenced the voices of Iowans,” Hart added.

Pelosi tried really hard to steal the seat and the comments she made on the topic were really questionable.

In an interview from last week, Pelosi said that she had the power to remove any member of the Congress if it pleases her.

“Now, if I wanted to be unfair, I wouldn’t have seated the Republican from Iowa because that was my right on the opening day,” Pelosi said.

“I would have just said ‘you’re not seated’ and that would have been my right as Speaker to do.”

Fox News reported this back then:

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi leaving the door open to overturning the certified House election results in Iowa is hypocritical and unfair, Sen. Joni Ernst, R-Iowa, asserted on “Fox & Friends Weekend.”

Just six votes separated Republican Mariannette Miller-Meeks from Democrat Rita Hart. Miller-Meeks’ win was certified after a recount process. Ernst pointed out that Hart appealed directly to the House Committee on Administration instead of further challenging the result in Iowa courts.

“Rep. Miller-Meeks has been seated in Congress. She won this election,” Ernst said. “It was certified by Iowans … and now Nancy Pelosi, perhaps, will overturn it. And that is horribly unfair to the voters in the second district in Iowa, and we are pushing back.”

Pelosi in a press conference Thursday told reporters there could “of course” be a scenario where the results are re-examined and overturned.

“Because we know she would love to overturn this election,” Ernst said.

Republicans and Democrats criticized Pelosi for her attitude. Mike Pence shared his thoughts on Pelosi’s power grab.

“After losing 13 seats in the 2020 election, House Democrats have a numbers problem and are trying to grab a House seat in Iowa to fix it,” wrote Pence. “Despite a Bipartisan group of election officials in Iowa voting 5-0 to certify Mariannette [Miller-Meeks] after a recount.”

“Now, Nancy Pelosi has changed her tune—not trusting states to certify their own elections,” he added. “Don’t let House Democrats take this seat to advance their Radical Left agenda. Let’s Stand up for Democracy and Stand with Congresswoman [Miller-Meeks]!”
