House Dems weigh ejecting GOP winner of contested Iowa race despite fact she’s already seated

According to a new report from CNN, “House Democrats are undeterred by the mounting GOP criticism over their review of a contested congressional race that could potentially overturn a state-certified Republican victory in southeast Iowa, brushing back attacks that they are seeking to subvert the will of voters just months after lambasting former President Donald Trump for trying to reverse his electoral defeat.”

Per the report “in November, Iowa’s election officials certified Republican Mariannette Miller-Meeks’ defeat of Hart — 196,964 to 196,958 — the closest federal race in 2020.

But Hart’s campaign has argued that if 22 other legally cast ballots are counted, she would win the race by nine votes rather than lose it by six. (The campaign has released a couple of voter testimonies claiming that their ballots were improperly tossed because of issues with the envelopes.) And since the Constitution makes the House the ultimate “judge” of its own elections, Hart has made an unusual petition to investigate her claims and seat her instead.”

Raskin told CNN “The critical thing is when you go to a judicial forum, bring some proof, bring some evidence with you.”
