Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi’s effort to steal GOP House Rep. Mariannette Miller-Meeks has completely blown up in her face after Democratic challenger Rita Hart withdrew her challenge.
Miller-Meeks had previously won her district in Iowa by 6 votes however Hart then ran to House Democrats including Pelosi to try to steal the seat from Miller-Meeks.
“I have made the decision to withdraw my contest before the House Committee on Administration,” Hart announced on Wednesday.
NEW: Rita Hart is withdrawing challenge of Iowa 2 race.

“Despite our best efforts to have every vote counted, the reality is that the toxic campaign of political disinformation to attack this constitutional review of the closest congressional contest in 100 years has effectively silenced the voices of Iowans,” Hart added.
Speaker Pelosi was in charge of attempting to steal the election from Miller-Meeks and made some extremely questionable comments along the way.
During an interview last week while discussing the matter, Pelosi stated that as Speaker, she can remove any member of Congress she wants.
“Now, if I wanted to be unfair, I wouldn’t have seated the Republican from Iowa because that was my right on the opening day,” Pelosi said.
“I would have just said ‘you’re not seated’ and that would have been my right as Speaker to do.”
Check out what Fox News reported at the time:
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi leaving the door open to overturning the certified House election results in Iowa is hypocritical and unfair, Sen. Joni Ernst, R-Iowa, asserted on “Fox & Friends Weekend.”
Just six votes separated Republican Mariannette Miller-Meeks from Democrat Rita Hart. Miller-Meeks’ win was certified after a recount process. Ernst pointed out that Hart appealed directly to the House Committee on Administration instead of further challenging the result in Iowa courts.
“Rep. Miller-Meeks has been seated in Congress. She won this election,” Ernst said. “It was certified by Iowans … and now Nancy Pelosi, perhaps, will overturn it. And that is horribly unfair to the voters in the second district in Iowa, and we are pushing back.”
Pelosi in a press conference Thursday told reporters there could “of course” be a scenario where the results are re-examined and overturned.
