Jim Jordan Gets Humiliated By Democratic Congressman During Hearing On Voting Rights

The setting was a meeting of the House Rules Committee, which Rep. Jim (Gym) Jordan (R-OH) serves on.

During a hearing on HR 4, which is the voting reform bill being advanced in the House of Representatives, Rep. Joseph Morelle (D-NY) called Jordan out for his repeated lies about Donald Trump supposedly winning the 2020 election, which of course he didn’t.

Crooks and Liars reports that Congressman Morelle began his remarks by chastising Republicans for some of the restrictive voting laws being passed in states such as Florida, Georgia, and Texas, all of which are controlled by the GOP. Morelle noted that these infringements on the right to vote are a “disgrace,” and then lit into Jordan:

“‘I also find it curiouser and curiouser that Mr. Jordan, you would use 2020 data on election participation when you wouldn’t even acknowledge the outcome of the same election,’ Morelle said.

“Earlier in the debate, Jordan claimed there was no need for Democratic bills on voting rights since the turnout of the 2020 election was so huge.”

Jordan could only respond:

“I have acknowledged.”

Morelle countered:

“Have you? Did Joe Biden win the election? There was no fraud. You’re prepared to say that?”

Jordan tried to duck the question by replying:

“He’s the President of the United States.”

The New York Democrat continued to press:

“That’s not what I asked you. Did he win the election? You said, he’s the President of the United States. That’s because we were here while the Capitol was being besieged by thousands of people intending to overturn — and stuck around to be able to confirm the results of the Electoral College. That’s why you acknowledge the president.”

Jordan had no comeback, only sitting and looking like the sore loser he and his orange master have always been and will always be.
