As House Democrats move forward in their pathetic attempt to steal the state-certified Iowa election to boost their slim majority in the House one Iowa Democrat says the House Administration Committee should stray from the state’s election laws to overturn the race in favor of the Dems.

Currently, the Committee is attempting to overturn the election won by GOP Rep. Mariannette Miller-Meeks in favor of Democrat opponent Rita Hart who lost by six votes.

According to Townhall:

Miller-Meeks’ victory was confirmed by two recounts and a certification by Iowa election officials. Hart and her representation are struggling to prove any improprieties to the committee, but argue that the House should “depart” from Iowa state laws in order to overturn the election results.

“Indeed, ‘there are instances where it is in fact bound by justice and equity to deviate from it,’ id. at 23—particularly when voter intent can be determined but a ballot is not, for one reason or another, in strict conformity with state law. Where necessary to effectuate the will of the voters of the Second Congressional District, the Committee should therefore exercise its discretion to depart from Iowa law, and adopt counting rules that “disenfranchise the smallest possible number of voters,” a recent appeal filing reads.

Just weeks ago, Democrats condemned attempts by Republicans to question the legitimacy of certified election results. A growing number of Democrats in Pelosi’s caucus are wary of their dangerous attempt to unseat a duly elected congresswoman.
