House GOP Plan to Sue Pelosi To Block Proxy Voting


House Republicans plan to file a lawsuit Tuesday against Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) in an effort to block the chamber’s new proxy voting system amid the coronavirus pandemic, citing the new rules are unconstitutional.

The lawsuit was first reported by the Wall Street Journal.

House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) is expected to spearhead the suit against Pelosi in U.S. District Court in Washington, D.C., along with the support of 20 GOP lawmakers.
