It appears that the GOP has had enough with Nancy Pelosi and finally decided to do something about it.
House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy confirmed that Congressional Republicans have filed a lawsuit to stop Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s “unconstitutional proxy voting scheme” during the Coronavirus pandemic.
“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,” Kevin McCarthy wrote on Twitter.
“This is NOT the representative democracy our Founders envisioned or what our Constitution allows,” he added.
“This week, House Democrats will break over 230 years of precedent and allow Members of Congress to vote by proxy on the House floor,” McCarthy wrote in a separate statement.
“This is not simply arcane parliamentary procedure. It is a brazen violation of the Constitution, a dereliction of our duty as elected officials, and would silence the American people’s voice during a crisis.”
