Spanberger Revolts Against Pelosi: ‘Party Needs New Leaders’

  • Virginia Democrat Rep. Abigail Spanberger lit into House Speaker for a “failure of House leadership” after Pelosi blocked legislation to ban stock trading by members and their families.
  • Spanberger: “After first signaling her opposition to these reforms, the Speaker purportedly reversed her position. However, our bipartisan reform coalition was then subjected to repeated delay tactics, hand-waving gestures, and blatant instances of Lucy pulling the football.”
  • She added: “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.”
