When Does Axne's Hall Pass End?
Iowa's Second Congressional District has captured the eyes of America. From the Wall Street Journal to the LA Times, Editorial Boards across the country are condemning Rita Hart and Nancy Pelosi's attempt to overturn a state-certified election.
The echelons of Democrat power in Washington are beginning to weigh in. On Friday, even Joe Biden's press secretary was asked about IA02.
House Democrats are beginning to defect from Pelosi's egregious plan saying:
- Dean Phillips (MN-03): "Losing a House election by six votes is painful for Democrats. But overturning it in the House would be even more painful for America.
- Rep. Chris Pappas (NJ-01): "The election is over & it’s time to move on."
- Rep. Elissa Slotkin (MI-08): "I can't turn around and vote to decertify something that's been stamped and approved in Iowa."
- Rep. Josh Gottheimer (NJ-05): "I have deep reservations."
But it's not just Democrats in D.C. who are speaking out either. Iowa Democrat State Auditor, Rob Sand, said that Rita Hart should have gone to the Iowa courts instead.
One major player in the saga, however, hasn't said anything all year. No matter how many times she's been asked, Cindy Axne keeps pointing to the same statement from Dec. 22nd.
Axne can no longer hide behind comments she made in December.
"How long does Axne get a pass from answering a simple question - does she agree and will she vote to overturn the votes of Iowans and side with Nancy Peolsi ," said Republican Party of Iowa Communications Director Kollin Crompton. "Not matter how uncomfortable she may be, the people of Iowa a deserve explanation on where she stands."
