House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has spent the past few months in the middle of the controversies surrounding the 2020 election.
And the first thing she did as soon as the dust settled was try to overturn an election.
But the good news is that it has backfired badly… so much so that even Democratic allies are turning against her.
The seat in question is the Second Congressional District where Rep. Mariannette Miller-Meeks, R-Iowa, captured the victory with just six votes.
Pelosi’s efforts seem fully sunk after another Democratic congressperson publicly rejected the notion that she would support the House Speaker’s bid to overturn the election.
Miller-Meeks won the race by six votes — an extremely slim margin — but a win is a win.
Pelosi refused to accept the results.
But her colleagues aren’t having it.
Rep. Elissa Slotkin, D-Mich., told multiple media outlets that she strongly rejects the idea of attempting to interfere with the certified election.
“I’m sorry, I cannot support overturning an election, especially given everything that’s gone on and what we’ve been hearing from the Republican side of the aisle,” she said.
Democrats in Minnesota, New Hampshire, and Michigan are willing to tell Nancy Pelosi that overturning #IA02 and disenfranchising 400,000 voters is wrong.@RepCindyAxne on the other hand, is still silent.

According to Breitbart, she joins seven other Democrats who are rejecting what political pundits are calling Pelosi’s power grab.
Even the Democratic candidate who lost the election, Rita Hart, decided not to take up the matter with the Iowa courts on the issue.

Sen. Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, pointed this out during a definitive speech from the Senate floor, reiterating Miller-Meeks’ win.
“Her opponent chose to forgo her right under Iowa law to present any claims of election irregularities to an independent panel of judges. That’s because, under Iowa law, she has no legal claim,” Grassley said.
If it wasn’t obvious before, it certainly is now.
Pelosi is in this battle all by herself, and she’s losing.
