I thought we were supposed to “respect the vote”?
Pelosi and the Democrats lost an election in the Iowa Congressional district and now they want to overturn it.
Republican Representative of Iowa Mariannette Miller-Meeks defeated Democrat Rita Hart by six votes.
What a close race!
Now the Republican’s win could be overturned after Pelosi stated that Democrats are open to overturning the close race.
I’m sure if they did do a recount “missing” ballots would arrive from who knows where and overturn the election results.
This is outrageous.
If Democrats unseat a Republican who won her election, Republicans need to draw the line and say they will not seat any member of Congress who votes to unseat her once they're in the majorityhttps://t.co/q5tg6gcC2i

.@millermeeks won. Iowa certified her victory.
So let's call this what it is: Nancy Pelosi is trying to steal an election to disenfranchise Iowa voters. https://t.co/8MnUPaUptR

The Epoch Times covered the story exclusively and shared these details:
The Democrat-run House of Representatives is open to overturning a tight Republican victory in an Iowa Congressional district, said House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) on Thursday.
Rep. Mariannette Miller-Meeks (R-Iowa) defeated Democrat Rita Hart by six votes during the Nov. 3 election. When asked about a scenario in which Democrats would unseat Miller-Meeks, Pelosi said it was a “hypothetical” situation but later said it’s possible that it could happen.
“Well, I respect the work of the committee,” she told reporters in her weekly press conference. “I did see, as you saw in the press, what they decided to—and they were following my, as I read it, the requirements of the law as to how you go forward. And how you go forward is the path you’re on and we’ll see where that takes us. But there could be a scenario to that extent. Yes.”
It came after the House Committee on House Administration dismissed a motion filed by Miller-Meeks to dismiss Hart’s election contest.
“The margin separating the two candidates was only six votes out of almost 400,000 cast: less than 1/6 of 1 percent. That’s six votes—not 6,000; not 600; not 60 or even 16—just six fewer votes than we have members of this committee,” Rep. Zoe Lofgren (D-Calif.), the head of the committee, told the panel’s members. She added: “It should not be surprising that any candidate in these circumstances—with a margin this close—would seek to exercise their rights under the law to contest the results.”

ARE THE DEMOCRATS TRYING TO STEAL A SEAT? House Speaker Nancy Pelosi says it’s possible that a GOP seat in Iowa could be overturned. @GOPLeader Rep. Kevin McCarthy responds TONIGHT on “Hannity.”

There’s a difference between challenging the election results and stealing an election and Democrats are attempting to just steal it!
Just like they did the 2020 election.
Here’s a fact: Rep. @millermeeks won this election fair and square. The votes were counted and the election was certified. Now, Rita Hart is appealing to Pelosi, not the Iowa process, to overturn the will of #IA02.
It’s a bad look. https://t.co/Ia50jKWLbL

Fox News didn’t stay quiet and released these details:
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said “of course” there’s a scenario where the state-certified victory of Rep. Mariannette Miller-Meeks, R-Iowa, is overturned as the House Administration Committee reviews Miller-Meeks’ narrow 2020 election win1.
“Could you see a scenario? We don’t do press conferences on ‘can you see a scenario.’ Of course! Of course!” Pelosi said during a press conference on Thursday. “I respect the work of the committee. … We’ll see where that takes us. There could be a scenario to that extent.”
Democrat Rita Hart lost to Miller-Meeks by six votes out of more than 400,000 ballots cast — a less than 1% margin of victory — prompting Hart to petition the election results with Congress in late December.
The House Administration Committee tabled a motion to dismiss a petition contesting the election results of Iowa’s 2nd Congressional District Wednesday, setting up the committee to review the closest race in the 2020 general election.
Instead of challenging the election’s results in an Iowa courtroom, Hart lodged her complaint with Congress, claiming that her campaign identified 22 voters in the 2nd District who voted legally, but whose ballots were not included in the final tally.
