Infighting. It’s not simply a Republican problem. Take this Democrat Congresswoman, for example, who absolutely shreds Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) to pieces…
From Daily Wire:
Democratic Congresswoman Kathleen Rice stormed out of a meeting of the House Democratic Caucus Wednesday, after becoming “frustrated,” she says, with how her colleagues were responding to sexual harassment allegations made against fellow Congressman John Conyers.
Rice had strong words for her leader, accusing Pelosi of turning back the clock on feminism. She told the Daily Beast that Pelosi “set women back and, quite frankly, our party, back decades,” and that Pelosi’s Sunday morning comments were downright shameful.
“I think that we ceded the moral high ground on Sunday when our leader said on Meet the Press that John Conyers was an icon and we don’t even know who these women are, when she was fully aware that the woman in question was bound by a nondisclosure agreement,” Rice said.
More on Rice, via Business Insider:
Rep. Kathleen Rice, the New York Democrat, walked out of the House Democratic Caucus meeting on Wednesday morning before it concluded, citing frustration with her colleagues’ inability to take a harder stance on sexual-harassment allegations against Rep. John Conyers, the Michigan Democrat.
According to The Washington Post’s Dave Weigel, Rice abruptly left the meeting, telling reporters outside, “I don’t have time for meetings that aren’t real.”
Rice had previously called on Conyers to resign, becoming the first of just two Democrats to demand such action.

Rice said what needed to be said. It’s nice to see a Democrat stand up to one of their own, isn’t it? Pelosi is bad for women and America alike.
