Democrats Are Trying To Overturn A House Race Settled Weeks Ago And Unseat A Republican

The House race for Iowa’s second district was settled by just a handful of votes and the Republican candidate Marianette Miller-Meeks won.

The race was certified and Miller-Meeks was seated weeks ago.

Yet now, Democrats are looking to possibly overturn this race and hand her seat to the Democrat who lost.

Do you remember all the times Democrats said that not accepting the results of an election is a threat to democracy?

They don’t.

Democrats Reviewing Whether To Overturn A Certified Iowa U.S. House Election

The House Administration Committee is reviewing a challenge brought by defeated Iowa Democrat Rita Hart against freshman Republican Rep. Mariannette Miller-Meeks, who won the race by just six votes.

Attorneys for the two candidates submitted initial legal briefs to the panel on Monday. In a terse 23-page brief, Miller-Meeks’ counsel broadly denied Hart’s claims and said the burden was on Hart to prove that a state-certified election should be overturned.

“We don’t have to prove anything at this point, and that’s something I think is important to emphasize: The congresswoman has a certificate of election, and that demonstrates that she is the winner of the race under Iowa law,” Alan Ostergren, an attorney representing Miller-Meeks in the complaint, told reporters on Monday.

Hart’s team alleges that there are 22 ballots that should have been counted in the election and that if they had, she would have won by nine votes. Hart’s campaign has cited examples including five absentee ballots cast in her favor that were not counted because they were not properly sealed. However, the race was certified by the Iowa State Board of Canvassers — with bipartisan support — after a full recount.

It’s unbelievable that this is even happening.

All this is happening and the media is nearly silent. It’s astounding.
