(FreedomJournal.org)- House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is easily one of the most partisan speakers in House history – something that former Speaker Newt Gingrich recently attested to when he said that Democrats were voting “like robots” in the House.
But a new report from the Conservative Brief reveals that several high-profile Democrats who are considered to be “moderate” have lined up to oppose efforts by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi to strip an Iowa Republican of her Congressional seat and give it to her opponent instead.
It comes after Rep. Mariannette Miller-Meeks, a Republican representing Iowa, won her election by an extremely narrow margin of six votes. The election was certified by the state of Iowa and Rep. Miller-Meeks has already been sworn in, but Pelosi wants the decision reversed…after claiming that President Trump was disrespecting democracy by calling for an audit of ballots cast in the presidential election.
The House Administration Committee recently considered a challenge by Democrat Rita Hart, Miller-Meeks’ opponent, to change the result of the election by counting 22 votes that she claims were improperly discounted by state election officials.
Rep. Zoe Lofgren, a Democrat from California who chairs the Administration panel, will adjudicate the first proceedings in the case and said that she is keeping an “open mind” on the matter.
But while the effort to strip Miller-Meeks of her seat has reportedly been given the blessing of the higher-ups in the Democratic Party, many lower-profile Democrats from swing districts are expressing their concern about Pelosi’s hyperpartisan attitude.
North Carolina Rep. David Price, California Rep. Lou Correa, Michigan Rep. Dan Kildee, and Minnesota Rep. Dean Philips have all reportedly said that they don’t believe removing Miller-Meeks is a wise move for the party.
On Twitter, Philips said that losing the election by six votes was “painful” for Democrats but that “overturning it in the House would be even more painful for America. Just because a majority can, does not mean a majority should.”

Rep. David Price also told Fox News that he doesn’t think “there’s the slightest chance” that Democrats will ultimately vote to overturn the results in IA02.

At least some Democrats are consistent in their refusal to accept that misconduct and fraud can happen in elections.
