An elected official responsible for ensuring the Democratic Party passes legislation in the House was accused of pretending to have higher morals than was the case.
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) has been accused of hypocritically supporting a Democratic Party challenge against the Iowa election outcome.
Rep. Jim Jordan (R-Ohio) criticized Pelosi for trying to overturn the outcome of the November election in the Hawkeye State, despite her earlier statement that the GOP should stop questioning the result and simply “respect the will of the people.”
“Speaker Pelosi says she is open to unseating Republican Congresswoman [Mariannette] Miller-Meeks,” he said on Twitter. “Translation: you are only allowed to object to an election if you are a Democrat.”
Pelosi had no qualms with letting failed Democratic candidate Rita Hart use the House Administration Committee to try to reverse the election result, which was decided by a slim margin of just six votes, according to the Ballotpedia website.
“Well, it was six votes and our candidate Rita Hart, the Democratic candidate, asked for this process to begin,” she said in a video shared on YouTube. “[We are talking about] six votes out of 400,000 cast.”
The House speaker ultimately rejected any suggestion that her actions seemed to contradict her earlier opposition to the 2020 Trump campaign’s efforts to verify the last presidential election outcome.
“What the House Administration Committee did was very narrow to take the process to the next step and see where it goes from there,” she said. “For them [Republicans] to call anybody hypocritical about elections, when two-thirds of them in the House voted against accepting the presidency of Joe Biden is, well, it is just who they are.”
The Democrat then tried to justify the election challenge was necessary even though she spent months criticizing former President Donald Trump and his supporters for doing the same.
“An election of six votes out of 400,000 votes cast, this is not unique [and] this has happened … when races had been close one side or the others say, ‘Let us take it to the House,'” she said. “Because even [former U.S. Supreme Court Associate] Justice [Antonin] Scalia agreed that the House has the authority to seat members, and therefore we can count the votes.”
Pelosi was previously caught telling fellow Democrats at a Chinese Communist Party (CCP) Virus stimulus meeting that she once planned to inflict as much pain as possible while removing President Trump from the White House by force.
“I plan to pull him out of there by his hair, his little hands, and his feet,” she allegedly said, according to Politico.
