Former Top House Democrat:
Pelosi’s direction, “unrepresentative” of message American people sent in 2010

Via the Washington Examiner’s Beltway Confidential, we learn just how House Minority Leader treats those Democrats who didn’t back her in the vote for Speaker in the current Congress:  you lose your seat at the Democratic leadership table.

Rep. Dennis Cardoza suspected that his January vote against fellow California Democrat Nancy Pelosi for Speaker might cost him the informal leadership post he’s held for more than three years. He was right.

. . . .

“I felt that there was no soul-searching about why it happened after the election,” he explained. “I felt like the Speaker — because so many of the moderates had been defeated — that she tacked and the Caucus tacked hard left. It was so unrepresentative of what the message was of the American people and of my district, that I couldn’t — in good conscience and good faith — any longer support her candidacy.”
