At least one centrist House Democrat is feeling uneasy about the review of a close congressional race in Iowa that could overturn a Republican’s state-certified victory.
Rep. Lou Correa, a California Democrat, broke ranks with fellow members of his party who have largely defended the House Administration Committee investigation into the razor-thin win by Rep. Mariannette Miller-Meeks of Iowa’s 2nd Congressional District that was affirmed by bipartisan state election officials.
Correa, who is a member of the Judiciary Committee, said he wants to “look at the facts” about “what motivates Congress to look at something that should be a state issue,” according to a CNN report on Thursday.
“I want to see what compelling reasons there are for the feds to get involved in this,” Correa added. “I think these are issues that right now are probably best left at the state level.”
Democrats are literally trying to steal a House seat.
The U.S. House Administration Committee moved to consider Democrat Rita Hart’s challenge of the results in last November’s election in Iowa’s 2nd Congressional District.
The committee voted in favor of considering the challenge and tabling a motion by Hart’s opponent, GOP Rep. Mariannette Miller-Meeks, to dismiss the appeal.
After the November general election, Iowa officials conducted three recounts of the results in the 2nd district.
Secretary of State Paul Pate ordered a recount in Jasper County on Nov. 6 and one in Lucas County on Nov. 10.
On Nov. 13, Hart requested a full recount of votes in all 24 counties in the district.
After this recount, Miller-Meeks — the Republican — was certified as the winner by 6 total votes.
On Dec. 2, Hart announced she would contest the election before the House Administration Committee.
The notice asked the House to invalidate the state-certified results, count the ballots Hart said were excluded, and initiate a uniform hand recount in all 24 counties in the district.
Miller-Meeks was provisionally seated in the House on Jan. 3, and on Jan. 21, she filed a motion asking Congress to dismiss Hart’s challenge of the election results, saying that Hart should have pursued the matter through state procedures rather than filing a petition with the House.

If the committee recommends the matter to the full House, the chamber will decide the outcome by a majority vote.
Now, consider the irony here.
When Donald Trump raised valid questions about the election, Democrats had a full-blown meltdown and it even played a role in them trying to impeach him a second time.
Also, consider the dangerous precedent this could set if Democrats overturn the results of any election already certified.
The Republican was certified as the winner of the race after multiple recounts.
Oh, and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi suggested over the weekend that Democrats will steal this seat and give it to the Democrat who lost.
