    The 10-member panel on the House Ethics Committee voted Thursday to drop the $5,000 fine issued to Rep. Virginia Foxx (R-N.C.), who challenged the report by the Capitol that said she failed to complete a security screening before entering the House building. This is the third time a majority of the evenly split bipartisan panel voted in favor of waiving the metal detector fee since the Jan. 6 protest at the Capitol. In May the Capitol Police issued a report that documented an incident where Foxx set off a metal detector in front of a door to the House chamber....

    Iowa Democrat Rita Hart has dropped her election challenge to Republican Rep. Mariannette Miller-Meeks’s 2020 victory in Iowa’s 2nd Congressional District. Hart on March 31 withdrew her challenge to her state-certified, six-vote loss with the House Administration Committee. A number of Democratic lawmakers in recent days said House leaders shouldn’t attempt to overturn the election results. “After many conversations with people I trust about the future of this contest, I have made the decision to withdraw my contest before the House Committee on Administration,” Hart said in a statement. “Since Election Day, and throughout this entire process, my mission has...

    House Democrats are attempting to overturn the twice recounted, state- certified results of a congressional election in Iowa, and state officials are condemning House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s “power grab.” Iowa Secretary of State Paul Pate penned a letter to Speaker Pelosi asking that she stop the attempted steal of Congresswoman Mariannette Miller-Meeks’ (R-IA) seat, emphasizing that the votes were recounted not once, but twice, and were certified by the bipartisan election commission. “Our state had the closest U.S. House race in the country, with Mariannette Miller-Meeks defeating Rita Hart. Following a recount in all 24 counties in the Second Congressional...
  • Pelosi’s Wild Declaration Regarding the Iowa House Seat Democrats Tried to Steal

    Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi might as well have declared, “I am the Congress” with her latest remarks about the Iowa House seat that’s become another ‘stop the steal’ story for the 2020 cycle. She pretty much said she has the right to seat or unseat members of the House of Representatives regardless of the election result. The empress has spoken. Also, a tad creepy, huh? Iowa’s second congressional district race ended with Republican Mariannette Miller-Meeks winning by literally a handful of votes. She was certified. She was seated, but her Democratic opponents, Rita Hart, wants the certification overturned...

    House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) downplayed concerns from some House Democrats about reviewing the Iowa congressional race that was won by six votes. The House Administration Committee, led by Rep. Zoe Lofgren (D-Calif.), is considering hearing Democrat Rita Hart’s challenge against Rep. Mariannette Miller-Meeks’ election victory that was certified by the state of Iowa. Pelosi told reporters that the House has the ability to overturn contested elections and said that Democrats whose races were narrowly contested would do the same as Hart. “I would say to them, if you lost by six votes, would you like to bring your case...

    An audacious maneuver to steal an election. The 2020 election cycle is over. Or so we thought. More than 4 months after Election Day, the Democrats in control of the House of Representatives are still eyeing a House seat won by Republican Rep. Mariannette Miller-Meeks of Iowa. The scorched-earth Democrats would like to snatch her seat away and give it to the loser of the race, Democrat candidate Rita Hart. On November 30, 2020, Iowa Secretary of State Paul Pate announced that the state canvassing board had officially certified Republican Miller-Meeks’ victory over Democrat Hart in Iowa’s second Congressional district...

    Rep. Mariannette Miller-Meeks (R-IA) told Breitbart News on Sunday how Rita Hart, her defeated Democrat opponent in November’s election for Iowa’s 2nd Congressional District, is attempting to overturn the election results and disenfranchise Iowa’s voters. Miller-Meeks explained that her opponent is asking the House Committee on Administration — run by a six-to-three Democrat majority — to overturn the election results. In Iowa’s 2nd Congressional District, 394,439 people voted in the 2020 election, with Miller-Meeks ultimately winning by 6 votes. Hart argues 22 Democrat ballots deemed illegitimate should have been counted, giving her the election. “They are disenfranchising 400,000 voters,” Miller-Meeks...

    House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) on Sunday excused Democrats who launched an investigation into possibly unseating an elected GOP House representative, explaining that the margin of victory was extremely slim. “It was six votes,” Pelosi told ABC News on Sunday, noting the number of votes by which Rep. Mariannette Miller-Meeks (R-Iowa) defeated her Democratic opponent, Rita Hart. Miller-Meeks was ultimately seated in Congress after votes were counted, recounted, and certified by the state. Several days ago, the House Administration Committee started a process that could lead to Miller-Meeks being unseated. “It was six votes, and our candidate Rita Hart, the...
  • BREAKING: Hypocrite Pelosi Now Wants To Invalidate Election Results After Recount Shows Republican Win

    For months, Democrats and establishment Republicans have told Trump supporters and independents that they were traitors for questioning election irregularities and daring the challenge election results in the 2020 election. Yet, Democrats and the media have had no problem challenging elections and voting machines results when it suited their purposes. In the latest case of such hypocrisy, Democrats are looking to unseat Iowa Republican Mariannette Miller-Meeks after she won her election in a close 400,000-vote race by 6 votes after a recount was completed.

    Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) said Thursday that she was open to a “scenario” in which the Democrat-run House of Representatives would overturn a close Republican win in Iowa’s second congressional district. Pelosi, addressing reporters during her weekly press conference, was asked whether she could “see a scenario” in which Democrats would unseat Rep. Marianette Miller-Meeks (R-IA), who won by six votes, and replace her with Democrat Rita Hart. As Breitbart News reported Wednesday, the Committee on House Administration voted along party lines to continue an inquiry into the congressional race — even though Miller-Meeks had been found...

    The House Administration Committee will consider an appeal from Democrats to contest the results of the closest 2020 congressional race after Republican Mariannette Miller-Meeks won by just six votes. The Committee will consider the merits of an appeal from Democrat Rita Hart after she lost to Miller-Meeks by a less than 1% margin of more than 400,000 ballots cast in Iowa's Second Congressional District. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said during press conference on Thursday that 'of course' the review could overturn the results of the close election.

    The Democrat-controlled House of Representatives has taken initial steps to make a decision in a contested Iowa election, one involving Republican Rep. Mariannette Miller-Meeks and Amy Hart, who lost to Miller-Meeks by six votes. Democrats have now begun to shift their focus to the race after Hart’s continuous claim that Miller-Meeks was improperly declared the winner, although multiple recounts have shown otherwise. As reported by Politico, the “House Administration Committee gathered virtually Friday afternoon to finalize the process by which it will adjudicate Hart’s claim, which was filed under the Federal Contested Elections Act.”

    Rep. Ashley Hinson (R-IA) said in a video statement Thursday that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) is trying to “steal” Iowa’s Second Congressional District from Rep. Marianne Miller-Meeks (R-IA). Even though Iowa state officials have certified that Republican Miller-Meeks defeated Democrat Rita Hart by six votes in Iowa’s Second Congressional District, Hart filed a petition to the House Administration Committee to overturn the election results. This has drawn the ire of Iowa Republicans, including Hinson.

Clinton County also is where Hart lives on a Wheatland farm and served as an educator and state senator.

    IOWA CITY — Two weeks before Iowa’s high-profile U.S. Senate election, Iowa Sen. Joni Ernst’s campaign may be planning for a recount. Ernst’s campaign filed open records requests this week with at least five Iowa counties, seeking materials that include training manuals, satellite voting locations, names of precinct ballot counters, recount procedures and any communications sent to her competitor, U.S. Rep. Bruce Braley. “I think they’re gearing up for a recount,” said Johnson County Auditor Travis Weipert, who received the letter from Ernst’s senior adviser Derek Flowers Tuesday. Recent polls show Ernst, a Red Oak Republican, and Braley, a Waterloo...

    The political arm for House Republicans says it is making a play for Iowa's 1st and 2nd congressional district seats. The National Republican Congressional Committee said Monday that it's buying $1.3 million in television ad time in the two districts, with spots to begin airing Friday. The purchase, the first for the NRCC in both districts this campaign cycle, is a sign they think they can win both races, officials say. Tyler Houlton, an NRCC spokesman, said more than $900,000 is being spent in the 2nd District, with purchases in the Cedar Rapids and Davenport markets. Another $400,000 is going...
