Yesterday, Iowa Democrat Rita Hart dropped her challenge to the House race she lost. She and Nancy Pelosi had planned to overturn the election through the Committee on House Administration, but enough members of the Democrat caucus saw the hypocrisy of it all and made it clear they would not be on board:
Hart has been trying to use the Committee on House Administration to overturn the state certified election in the Second Congressional District of Iowa.
This would have posed an uphill battle, as Democrats have started to back away from the partisan efforts. Breitbart News reported earlier this week, as many as nine Democrats have come forward to defect. Moderates would have had to go on the record to vote for or against the efforts if Hart’s attempt were to pass the Committee.
Hart wrote in a press release, “after many conversations with people I trust about the future of this contest, I have made the decision to withdraw my contest before the House Committee on Administration.”
Finally, some sanity in Washington DC. Nancy Pelosi’s efforts to steal a House seat right out from underneath the Iowa voters was just too much for her fellow Democrats who saw it for what it was, political theft.
Nancy Pelosi rubbed people the wrong way when she addressed the issue the other day and said she had every right to not seat Rep Miller-Meeks on opening day if she wished because she has the right to seat or unseat anyone she wishes:

Then she went on to say she wanted credit for not denying Rep. Miller-Meeks her seat, because as Queen of the House she could have done just that:

Queen Nancy wants a pat on the back and an ‘atta girl for not blowing up the democratic process and just seating whoever she wants in every seat.
Nancy Pelosi is why we need congressional term limits.
