Nancy Pelosi Is Losing Her Party’s Support Fast

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi has had her fair share of political scandal throughout her career.

And while many Republicans are vocally against the Democrat’s leadership role in the House due to her misconduct, she still holds the title.

Shockingly, however, it seems Nancy Pelosi has lost support even from her own party lately.

Nancy Pelosi publicly defended a Democrat who was caught on tape urging someone to drop out of the Democratic primaries.

House Minority Whip Steny Hoyer was caught perpetrating Colorado Candidate Levi Tillerman to drop out of the primaries— and Pelosi claims there is nothing wrong with his plea.

Breitbart reported:

The controversy surrounding audio logs of a call between Hoyer and Colorado candidate Levi Tillerman uncovered by The Intercept continues to mount. Pelosi is trying to defuse the same tension that embittered supporters of Senator Bernie Sanders in the 2016 presidential primary.

 

At her weekly press conference, Pelosi claimed that she didn’t “see anything inappropriate in what Mr. Hoyer was engaged in conversation about.” Further, she dismissed the manipulation as “if the realities of life is that some candidates can do better in the general than others, then that’s a clear-eyed conversation that we should be having.”

 

Hoyer’s own spokesperson, Katie Grant, said much the same: “Whip Hoyer is committed to taking back the House, and that involves working with local leaders to identify and support the strongest candidate for that district.”

 

But neither of those statements address the growing divide between the Democratic establishment and the ever-widening current of discontent from progressives in their base. Tillerman’s opposition, U.S. Army veteran Jason Crow, seems to have been the preferred choice for a run against Republican Mike Coffman.

 

According to Hoyer’s call, he is “for Crow because a judgment was made very early on.” Apparently, that decision is more about toeing the establishment line than personal opinion. Hoyer said, “I didn’t know Crow. I didn’t participate in the decision. But a decision was made early on by the Colorado delegation.”

After being faced with controversy, Pelosi is trying to turn the tables on Tillerson, and question the legalities of his recording.

Breitbart continued:

Now Pelosi is attempting to cast aspersions on Tillerman himself, questioning the legality of recording the call in the first place — despite the recording being completely legal under Colorado law. “I don’t know that a person can tape a person without the person’s consent and then release it to the press. That’s what I’m more concerned about,” she complained.

 

Meanwhile, The Progressive Change Campaign Committee is taking action against “targeting” by the DCCC. They have called on Hoyer to resign from Democratic leadership and are asking donors to support Tillerman and others being pushed down from within their own party.

 

In a statement, PCCC co-founder Stephanie Taylor said, “Steny Hoyer and his corporate cronies already lost,” and “they don’t represent the future, and it’s time for them to step aside and make room for a new generation of leadership — one that inspires and motivates the base instead of depressing it.”

While the scandal does not directly affect Pelosi, her scurry to hide her interaction proves that there may be more to be revealed.

Do you believe that Pelosi should hold a position in Congress?

      What more can she possibly get now?” She has everything including keeping her full pay for life by NOT COMING to work!

      • Jacks are Wild

        She’s 78 years old & we can only expect that we won’t need to pay her very long.

          one week would be great….azzwipes probably have a little disclaimer in their secret section that says the survivors of clowns that serve more than 12 minutes in the legislature will receive the clown’s retirement bucks for life….

    • AFVET

  • Holly

    I didn’t know someone could make up a false dossier and then have multiple Politicians lie about it, and then release it to the press ! Sounds familiar !

  • Daniel Rhoads

    Elect a Republican Party Congress in 2018 election and Nancy Pelosi will be forced to retire because the Democrats say that if they don’t take the House she is gone!! If she stays in power until the election, she will be a great asset to the Republican Party for a 2018 win!!! The Democrat Party “shut up juice shot just does work anymore with her, so keep it up Nancy and bring home the victory for the Republican Party in 2018 and enjoy your retirement”!!!!!!!!

    Nancy Pelosi and her husband has been avoided prison because they are like the rest of the Dumb O Crappers, above the law, they was practising insider trading where they made MILLIONS ( Master Card ) comes to mine as one of them, Martha Stewart went to prison for a lot less. Than we got Rapists, Pedophiles, Thieves, in the BILLIONS, Leakers and Killers,

    Each and every time Pelosi is the object of questions within the Party , she goes further into bizzare reasoning or justifying her Emesis . She is getting to a point that she doesn’t remember what’s said day to day !
    I would say she is pretty well “done” as Minority Speaker …

  • Mathematical certainty

    “Do you believe that Pelosi should hold a position in Congress?”
    Actually, Pelosi should have been put in a strait-jacket at birth, and preserved in an infantile asylum for future scientific reference, to demonstrate to the population that….this is the result when triple-condoms are not used.

  • Palmer

    She is Senile, Can’t put a complete sentence together. She has been in Govt about 30 years too long. Pathetic Congress woman. Go Away!!!!

  • Ginette Z Cohen

    This old lady Pelosi who is bubbling ineptness should retire in her mansion. She made enough millions of dollars thanks to her position taking advantage of the hard working Americans. We call her Democrat supposedly helping the poor and Middle class. It is all lies and shenanigans.
