Gerry Connolly tells off Jim Jordan to his face
Republican Congressman Jim Jordan is having a bad week. First the news broke that George Clooney is producing a documentary series on the sexual abuse scandal at Ohio State University that Jordan is widely accused of having helped cover up. Now Jordan is taking heat from within Congress.
Today the House held a hearing about Donald Trump’s corrupt Postmaster General Louis DeJoy. Jim Jordan took it as an opportunity to further Trump’s lies about mail-in voting. Let’s just say that Democratic Congressman Gerry Connolly wasn’t having any of it:
Rep. Connolly just tore Gym Jordan a new one.
And he deserves it.

In the end, Connolly said this to Jim Jordan: “I didn’t vote to overturn an election. And I will not be lectured by people who did, about partisanship.”
