That Might Just Inspire an Actual Insurrection

Pelosi: ‘There Could Be A Scenario’ In Which Democrats Unseat GOP Congresswoman, Give Seat To Democrat | The Daily Wire

There could be a scenario in which I join a march on Capitol Hill carrying torches and pitchforks.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi signaled on Thursday that there could be a situation in which Democrats unseat Rep. Mariannette Miller-Meeks (R-IA) and replace her with the Democratic challenger that she beat in last year’s election, Rita Hart.

“On Wednesday, a congressional committee punted a motion to dismiss Democrat Rita Hart’s election contest of the result of Iowa’s 2nd Congressional District election in November before first considering the merits of her appeal,” the Iowa City Press-Citizen reported. “The U.S. House Committee on House Administration postponed its consideration of a motion to dismiss, which was filed by U.S. Rep. Mariannette Miller-Meeks, the Republican who was certified by state officials as the winner of Iowa’s 2nd District by just six votes.”


Well, I respect the work of the Committee. 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, and we’ll see where that takes us. Yeah, but there could be a scenario to that extent, yes.

They actually did this once before. In 1985, I believe, the Democrats refused to seat a Republican from here in Indiana. This was before the internet and 200 channels and social media, though, so the outrage was muted.

I suspect in this case, the outrage would be out of control. But perhaps I under-estimate the power of the liberal media and over-estimate the simmering rage on the right.
