Nancy Pelosi 'Open' to Overturning Republican Election Win in Iowa

Evidently, Nancy Pelosi believes overturning election results are only “treasonous” when Republicans try it.

The Democrats stuttering alcoholic Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi says she’s open to overturning a close Republican victory in an Iowa Congressional district from the November 3rd election.

GOP Rep. Mariannette Miller-Meeks of Iowa defeated Democrat Rita Hart by a mere six votes, and Pelosi is now hinting at overturning it.

When asked about a scenario in which Democrats would unseat Miller-Meeks, Pelosi said it was a “hypothetical” situation but later said it’s possible that it could happen.

Nancy Pelosi Is Now Ok With Overturning An Election?

During her weekly press conference, after the House Committee on House Administration dismissed a motion filed by Miller-Meeks to dismiss Hart’s election contest, Pelosi told reporters:

“Well, I respect the work of the committee. I did see, as you saw in the press, what they decided to—and they were following my, as I read it, the requirements of the law as to how you go forward. And how you go forward is the path you’re on and we’ll see where that takes us.

But there could be a scenario to that extent. Yes.

Rep. Zoe Lofgren (D-Calif.), the head of the committee, told the panel’s members.

“The margin separating the two candidates was only six votes out of almost 400,000 cast: less than 1/6 of 1 percent.

That’s six votes—not 6,000; not 600; not 60 or even 16—just six fewer votes than we have members of this committee.

It should not be surprising that any candidate in these circumstances—with a margin this close—would seek to exercise their rights under the law to contest the results.”

Under the Federal Contested Elections Act of 1969, the House has the ability to decide close congressional races on its own aside from the courts.
