Iowa Democrat Rita Hart is dropping her pointless challenge against GOP Rep. Mariannette Miller-Meeks's 2020 election victor in the state’s 2nd District.
Hart launched her challenge weeks ago under the premise that she had enough votes to overturn Meek’s 6-vote victory that had already been certified by a bipartisan state election panel.
She brought her case to the House, where she can, by law, and where, of course, Speaker Nancy Pelosi eagerly took it up.
But now, that challenge is over, The Epoch Times reports:
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 should not 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 been about ensuring the voices of Iowans who followed the law are not silenced. I am saddened that some Iowans' votes will not count through no fault of their own. The work of ensuring it does not happen again will continue beyond this campaign.'
The decision by Hart came as House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) and Miller-Meeks stumped in Iowa to criticize House Democratic efforts to steal the seat.
'The idea that Democrats want to turn over an election after it's been counted, recounted, and a bipartisan election board had voted,' McCarthy said March 31. 'It's time to move on. I've served with the Congresswoman, we've been to the border already to see the crisis.'
So much for Pelosi’s opportunity to steal a seat, right?
Pelosi is a political low-life of the highest order. No doubt since the complaint was already filed before a House committee, she’s already hard at work trying to figure out how to ‘allow the process to play out’ anyway.
