House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) swung the door wide open to possibly unseating a current Republican member and replacing her with a Democrat.
The House swore-in Rep. Mariannette Miller-Meeks (R-IA) as the winner in Iowa’s second Congressional district when the new Congress began on January 3. Miller-Meeks eked out a six-vote win over Democrat Rita Hart, flipping a seat from blue to red. After recounts, Iowa election officials certified Miller-Meeks as the winner.
Hart appealed to the House Administration Committee to investigate the matter. Article I, Section 5 of the Constitution says the House and Senate “shall be the judge of the elections, returns and qualifications of its own members.”
The panel took up the case. Miller-Meeks asked the committee to dismiss Hart’s request this week. The committee denied that entreaty and is continuing the investigation.
