Barely weeks after waxing furious over then-President Donald Trump’s efforts to “overturn the election,” House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is getting set to . . . overturn an election.
Because, she explains, she “has the authority.” Seriously.
The Democratic loser of a tight Iowa House race has asked the House to do its own recount and, as the speaker put it Thursday, “If you had lost a race by six votes, wouldn’t you like to say, ‘There must be some way that we can count this’?”
Never mind that the Democrat, Rita Hart, got a full recount under Iowa law, and passed on her chance to further appeal there.
Nor, of course, all the condemnation of Trump for his demands to legislators and Mike Pence to interfere with his race.
Yet Pelosi says the “process” whereby Democrats may turn Hart’s loss into a win is perfectly fair. “Unfair,” in her book, would’ve been if she’d used her “right as speaker” to not even seat the winner, Republican Rep. Mariannette Miller-Meeks. Heck, “many members were saying, ‘Don’t seat the person.’”
She sounds exactly like Trump talking about his rights and what “many people” were telling him at the height of his post-election lunacy.
Whatever moral high ground the Democrats had on “Respect the vote,” Pelosi is throwing it out the window.
Indeed, her attitude exposes the truth about her party’s current “election reform” drive: It’s nothing but a partisan push to rewrite the nation’s laws to make it easier for Democrats to win.
