Desperate Pelosi Allows COVID Positive Democrat in Chamber to Help Re-elect Her as Speaker

Rep Gwen Moore was allowed to vote on the House floor for Pelosi, despite having admitting to testing positive for COVID-19 just 6 days earlier.


Nancy Pelosi narrowly won re-election as Speaker of the House on Sunday.

It is clear that Pelosi has a death grip on the position, and she will hold on to it by any means neccesary.

This includes allowing Democrats who have recently tested positive for coronavirus onto the House floor to vote for her.

Nancy Pelosi claims to take the Chinese virus very seriously, yet she keeps proving again and again that all she truly cares about is the power trip she feels while holding that gavel.

Her desperation to hold onto that power will always come before any concerns for public health.

Democrat Rep. Gwen Moore was allowed to vote on the House floor Sunday, despite announcing that she tested positive for coronavirus just 6 days earlier.

Rep Moore should feel quite special.

Apparently Moore’s presence was as important to Pelosi as getting her hair done at a salon while the rest of the country was forbidden to do so becuse of COVID-19.

Fox News has more on the decision to allow Rep. Gwen Moore to vote on the House floor:

Rep. Gwen Moore, D-Wis., returned to the House floor on Sunday to vote for Rep. Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., as speaker, despite announcing six days ago that she tested positive for coronavirus.

Moore announced on Dec. 28 that she had tested positive for coronavirus, though she did not specify which day she tested positive. She told reporters on Capitol Hill Sunday that she did not gotten a negative COVID-19 test, arguing she didn't need to because she quarantined for two weeks.

She said Dr. Brian Moynihan, U.S. Capitol attending physician, said she was cleared to return to Capitol Hill.

"Thank you all for the well wishes," Moore wrote on Twitter on Sunday. "I am feeling good! My quarantine is over and I am medically cleared to travel and work on behalf of Wisconsin's Fourth Congressional District."

Meanwhile, three other members of Congress were be allowed to vote on Sunday via "special arrangements" because they are still in their quarantine windows despite testing negative for the virus, Politico's Heather Caygle and Melanie Zanona reported.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has detailed two acceptable quarantine periods, although it noted that the previously established 14-day quarantine is the best way to reduce the risk of virus spread. Officials said quarantine can now end after 10 days without a COVID-19 test if the person reports no symptoms, or after seven days with a negative test result if the person reports no symptoms.

The GOP have called out the blatant hypocrissy of Democrats to allow Moore to vote on the floor despite testing positive for COVID.

House Republicans are attacking Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) and the Democrats after Rep. Gwen Moore (D-Wis.) tested positive for COVID-19 but arrived at the Capitol on Sunday in order to cast her vote for Speaker.

“Pelosi is putting the public’s health at risk to keep herself in power,” tweeted conservative Rep. Ken Buck (R-Colo.).

“Looks like @SpeakerPelosi's proxy voting and remote hearing measures are only essential when her leadership position isn't on the line,” Rep. Bruce Westerman (R-Ark.) added in a separate tweet.

Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) said it was “wrong” for Democrats to allow Moore to vote Sunday so soon after her diagnosis.

Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene also brought attention to Pelosi's corruption in a video on Twitter:

nancy Pelosi is the face of corruption in the United States of America.

Look at the arrogance.
