There has been all sorts of talk in recent months about the sanctity of our American elections. There were concerns from all corners of the political spectrum, often with hotly contested issues falling down predictably partisan lines.
For the presidential election, a great deal of the debate surrounded the claims being made by then-President Donald Trump about the legitimacy of Joe Biden’s win. Trump and lawyers aligned with him believed that either through voting machine malfeasance or illegitimate ballots, the whole contest was stolen from him.
The Democrats were downright dismissive, often painting Trump and his supporters as conspiracy theorists.
Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) said Thursday that she was open to a “scenario” in which the Democrat-run House of Representatives would overturn a close Republican win in Iowa’s second congressional district.
Pelosi, addressing reporters during her weekly press conference, was asked whether she could “see a scenario” in which Democrats would unseat Rep. Marianette Miller-Meeks (R-IA), who won by six votes, and replace her with Democrat Rita Hart.
As Breitbart News reported Wednesday, the Committee on House Administration voted along party lines to continue an inquiry into the congressional race — even though Miller-Meeks had been found to be the winner by state authorities following a recount and a bipartisan canvas of the vote.
There will undoubtedly be plenty of criticism of Pelosi here, given all that has transpired in DC over the course of the last several months.
