Nancy Pelosi Hit With Lawsuit From House GOP


Smaller Font Larger Font RSS 2.0


House Republicans have filed a lawsuit against House Speaker Nancy Pelosi in an attempt to keep her from defying a constitutional tradition.

I just filed a lawsuit in federal court to overturn Speaker Pelosi’s unconstitutional proxy voting scheme.

It could allow as few as 20 Representatives to control the votes of 220. This is NOT the representative democracy our Founders envisioned or what our Constitution allows.


According to The Daily Wire:

House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) filed a lawsuit against Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) on Tuesday evening in an attempt to block the House of Representatives from allowing representatives to vote on behalf of up to ten other members of Congress as a designated proxy voter. 

In addition to McCarthy, nearly two dozen Republican members of Congress have signed on as plaintiffs in the lawsuit, which also names the sergeant-at-arms and House clerk, two figures who serve a notable role in the proxy voting plan, as defendants. 


The lawsuit states that, so far, 55 members of Congress had sent letters to the House clerk designating another representative as their official proxy voter. As of Tuesday evening, an additional four members of congress officially designated another representative as their proxy, bringing the total to 59 members, all of whom are Democrats. 

The lawsuit, a copy of which was posted by The New York Times, accuses the Majority of ignoring “what the constitution demands of it,” and asks that the court “not do the same” in its ruling. 

The lawsuit points to many instances where lawmakers met in person despite extenuating circumstances of the times.
