Democrats are beginning to turn on their own, and another member of the Left recently blasted House Speaker Nancy Pelosi for her "failure of House leadership."
Pelosi is being called a failure at House leadership for refusing to call up legislation to impose tougher stock trading restrictions on Congress members.
"Rep. Abigail Spanberger, D-Va., said she has been working with members since 2020 to call up a bill that would strengthen the provisions of the STOCK Act, a 2012 law that prohibits lawmakers from using inside information to profit from stock trading," reported Fox.
Attack on Nancy Pelosi
"Support for a complete ban on trading by lawmakers grew this year, but Spanberger accused Pelosi, D-Calif., and other Democratic leaders of shutting it down," according to Fox.
"After first signaling her opposition to these reforms, the Speaker purportedly reversed her position," Spanberger said.
"However, our bipartisan reform coalition was then subjected to repeated delay tactics, hand-waving gestures and blatant instances of Lucy pulling the football," Spanberger continued.
Then she dropped the bomb on Pelosi.
"This moment marks a failure of House leadership — and it’s yet another example of why I believe that the Democratic Party needs new leaders in the halls of Capitol Hill," Spanberber said.
Spanberber continued, noting Pelosi's failure to find consensus.
Spanberger said Pelosi "chose to ignore these voices, push them aside, and look for new ways they could string the media and the public along."
