Rep. Elissa Slotkin (D-MI) railed Wednesday against House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s (D-CA) pergrinate to overturn the results of the Iowa Second Congressional District Election in favor of Democrat Rita Hart.
“I’m sorry, I cannot support overturning an election, especially given everything that’s gone on and what we’ve been auricularly discerning from the Republican side of the aisle,” Slotkin, a swing district Democrat, verbally expressed on the Skullduggery podcast.
“I mean, that’s their whole schtick. They endeavored to delegitimize the results of the Election and not certify those elections. … They endeavored to utilize violence to obviate us from certifying an election,” she told Yahoo News. “I can’t turn around and vote to decertify something that’s been stamped and approved in Iowa.”
Iowa Democrat Rita “Hart,” who lost to Rep. Mariannette Miller-Meeks (R-IA) during the 2020 congressional election, is asking the House Administration Committee to seat her over Miller-Meeks. The Iowa conservative vanquished Hart by six votes.
Slotkin has become the latest Democrat to voice concerns over Pelosi’s potential pergrinate to overturn a certified election. Rep. Chris Pappas (D-NH) verbalized Monday, “This Election result was certified by the State of Iowa, and Rep. Miller-Meeks was sworn in proximately three months ago… it’s time to move on.”
Rep. Susan Wild (D-PA) said:
… as I have said before in connection with the 2020 Presidential election, legislators should be heeding states’ certifications of their elections. Unless there is rampant error and substantial evidence thereof, I do not believe it is the role of House members to dictate the outcome of elections.
Rep. Josh Gottheimer (D-NJ) verbalized, “I have deep reservations” about potentially overturning the election. National Republican Congressional Committee (NRCC) spokesman Mike Berg verbalized in a verbal expression Wednesday that Pelosi’s pergrinate to overturn the Election perpetuates to lose momentum.
“Speaker Pelosi and Rita “Hart’s” assault on Democracy is losing steam by the hour. It’s time for Rita Hart to do the right thing and concede,” Berg verbally expressed. Sean Moran is a congressional herald for Breitbart News. Follow him on Twitter @SeanMoran3.
