Pelosi could be charged with ‘massive hypocrisy’ if she continues to challenge results of NY congressional race

A New York judge delivered some bad news to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) last week when he opted to certify a win by Republican candidate Claudia Tenney over Democratic Rep. Anthony Brindisi.

Although Pelosi may move to contest the ruling, Washington Examiner writer Quin Hillyer says that doing so will open her up to charges of “massive hypocrisy.” 

Tight race

Tenney won New York’s 22nd district by a mere 109 vote margin of victory, and as Hillyer acknowledged in his piece on Friday, “The balloting, especially the mail-in part of it, was handled with stunning incompetence.”

“Votes were lost and then found; officials used sticky notes to mark contested ballots only to have the notes fall off; and county elections boards and a trial judge had to wade through numerous other irregularities,” he added.

Yet he noted how aside from “one brief period of just hours, Tenney led in every updated vote count, although, at one time, her lead was down to single digits.”

Hillyer also pointed to the “exhaustive and painstaking” review conducted by State Supreme Court Justice Scott DelConte over the past 12 weeks.

Thus, he argued that “Tenney should be able to retake her seat in the House of Representatives and hold it for the next two years without further challenge.” Still, there are signs that may not happen.

Loser calls for recount

Brindisi reacted to the news by tweeting, “I am shocked and surprised by this decision because of the countless errors and discrepancies that have occurred throughout this initial count. I believe a full audit and hand recount is the only way to resolve this race.”

According to Hillyer, Pelosi “would be reopening two of the biggest cans of worms” if she jumps on board with any such move, with both tied to attorney Mark Elias, the “longtime Democratic election-law specialist” who is representing her preferred candidate.

This is a problem since Elias “was the Hillary Clinton campaign official” who “hired the research firm Fusion GPS to produce what became the bogus anti-Trump “Steele dossier” that “thoroughly corrupted part of the investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election.”

Further, Elias is suggesting that voting machines produced by Dominion Voting Systems “erred in tabulating the votes,” which is strange given how Elias “led the Democrats’ fight in all contested states to combat Trump’s claim that the presidential race was stolen.”

Hillyer believes that given these facts, Pelosi has to accept Tenney’s victory if she “has the slightest bit of integrity.” Whether she does or not remains to be seen.

    The worst thing that could happen to her is for Joe to lose faith and her fellow loser Congress People vote her out. Only to be replaced by another derriere hole.

    1. First off, we ALL know just how corrupt the Dems are when it comes to voting. These Dems Lie, Cheat, Steal, Subvert, change votes, and numerous standard practices, whatever is needed to Steal our chosen electors.

      Our Nation needs to remove these Corrupt Swamp Rats from OUR POLITICAL Offices, once and for all, NO Matter WHAT. They are destroying our Country!!!!!!!!!

      1. Mike, many of us agree with you, but the corruption goes so deep that it will take many more of us fighting it to get anything done about it. We ALL know that the Presidential election was stolen by the Democrats through deception and lies and would like to get Crazy Joe and Kamala out.

      2. I totally agree,but how? Saying they need to be removed and actually being able to do it are 2 different things.

    2. t’s Nancy’s job to protect the capital when she Failed at her responsibility as usual she blames it on someone else G America wants Trump I’ll blame it on him, like her haircut last spring she said “it was a set up” no Nancy you violate law’s continually like the insider trading problem you have with Tesla stock

  4. Oh how the mighty fall when they have to use the very tactics they demanded the rest of us not be allowed to!!
    You go girl (Pelosi!), and may you finally realize you are not GOD JUNIOR!!

  5. Piglosi has NO integrity! She should be charged with dereliction of duty, abuse of power, subversion, and be removed from congress permanently! She is unfit to be speaker of the house! She is “ the enemy within”, a national security risk! Remove her!!!!!

    1. Oh, your too like her nickname. I always refer to her as Piglosy. Whoever came up with it should receive and award. It is so fitting.

  6. All of those that swore to defend the constitution and then voted to impeach a private citizen should be tried for treason.

    1. Well you know that won’t happen but we need to vote conservative republicans in all elections and put Dems out of office period. The way they have treated President Trump is a disgrace on our country. Make them pay BIG TIME and just maybe they will wake up.

        1. Susan Collins (RINO) was the worst thing that ever ‘happened’ to Maine and the country–other than Mitt Romney. Unfortunately, we didn’t have anyone running against her on our ballots!! Her opponent was a young woman from RI and even ‘worse’ than ‘she’ is–if you can imagine that!! I think, in the future, I’ll be searching for suitable ‘write-ins’ and I suggest others do the same!! That is, if our (R) votes are ever ‘counted’ again!! (Gee, look at that! Only ‘6’ (R) votes and 700,000 (D) votes!!) Amazing, huh!!!

      1. I’m deeply concerned that no matter ‘how’ we vote, the ‘election fraud’ will continue!! Looking at ‘signs’ of that in ‘Tenny’s’ election results. Again–she was comfortably ‘ahead’, then ‘suddenly’ it dropped to ‘single numbers’!! Having ‘won’ in spite of that, she is still being challenged by the (D) contender. Again, ‘mail-in’ votes, lost and ‘found’ ballots—very same ‘symptoms’ of the ‘fraud’ committed in the presidential election. Is this what will happen every time a ‘R’ runs for office, no matter what the ‘voters’ say??? Only (D)s are ‘allowed’ to ‘win’ an election??

  7. Nearly the entire Congress (Senate and Reps) and the justice system, ABC agencies- are ALL corrupt. Nothing will ever happen to these people unless something drastic occurs. They hate America, love our enemies- especially the CCP- and have taken numerous bribes to remain in power, gain wealth and destroy us and our country in the process.
