"Facts," from Democrats?Biased against facts?
When former Democratic Senator Barbara Boxer of California and Rep Stephanie Tubbs objected to Bush's 2004 electoral votes in Ohio back in 2005, it forced the chambers to leave their joint session.
A two-hour debate then ensued in both chambers on whether to reject Ohio's electoral votes, which they didn't end up doing, and Boxer on Thursday emphasized it "wasn’t about overturning the election."
She was the only senator to vote to reject Ohio's electoral votes that year – and Pelosi praised her challenge while acknowledging that they would accept the election outcome.
"Today we are witnessing Democracy at work. This isn't as some of our Republican colleagues have referred to it, sadly, as frivolous. This debate is fundamental to our democracy," Pelosi said at the time.
"The representatives of the American people in this house are standing up for three fundamental American beliefs: The right to vote is sacred; that a representative has a duty to represent his or her constituents; and that the rule of law is the hallmark of our nation."
Doesn't that make her guilty of treason?
You are standing up for exactly the opposite.
