Desperate times call for desperate measures as Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) loses her hold on the U.S. House of Representatives.
The Speaker of the House is pulling out drastic tactics to hang on to power as November draws closer.
But Pelosi is now losing her mind after her latest attempt to elbow this Hispanic opponent out of the way backfired.
Rep. Mayra Flores (R-TX) shocked the political world last month when she made history in two ways.
First, as a Republican she won a special election in the historically deep blue Rio Grande Valley of Texas.
Second, she became the first Mexican immigrant elected to the U.S. House of Representatives.
However, there is no rest for the weary – as Rep. Flores had to turn around and immediately begin running for her re-election this November.
Making matters more difficult, her seat has new boundaries after it was redistricted to add thousands of Democrat voters into her district.
Flores has made waves in her short time in Congress – and Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) wants her out.
In fact, at Flores’ historic swearing in ceremony, Pelosi was caught on camera elbowing Flores’ young daughter out of the way.
I am so proud of my strong, beautiful daughter for not allowing this to faze her. She continued to smile and pose for the picture like a Queen.
No child should be pushed to the side for a photo op. PERIOD!! https://t.co/TA50EntDoq

“I am so proud of my strong, beautiful daughter for not allowing this to faze her,” Flores tweeted about the incident. “She continued to smile and pose for the picture like a Queen. No child should be pushed to the side for a photo op. PERIOD!!”
Of course, the San Francisco Representative is also eager to turn the seat blue again in her fledgling effort to maintain the Democrat Majority in the People’s House.
But now Flores is fighting back against, perhaps, even more personal attacks.
Flores’ opponent this November, — current Rep. Vincente Gonzalez (D-TX) who was dealt more of an opponent this fall than he and Speaker Pelosi expected thanks to the redistricting — paid a blogger for “advertising” who turned around and smeared Flores with racist and sexist attacks.
The blogger never provided any official ads, and doesn’t even offer space on his site for advertisements.
What the blogger did do however was call Flores “Miss Frijoles” 21 times.
He also labeled her a “cotton-picking” liar.
And he made crude references to Flores’ private body parts.
Flores hit back, standing up for herself and demanding an apology from Rep. Gonzalez.
However, Gonzalez only offered up excuses.

Gonzalez is now learning the hard way — you don’t mess with Mayra!
In response to his lack of apology, Flores took to Twitter and absolutely torched Gonzalez, figuratively revoking Gonzalez’ man card and ripping it up right in front of him.
“This doesn’t sound like an apology to me,” Flores tweeted about Gonzalez to her 270,000 followers. “Also, the racist pervert you hired to target me with filth has ZERO space on his ‘blog’ for ads, so we know this is a lie.”
But the wife of a border control agent really made her point with her next sentence.
“If you were a real man, you would apologize in person and resign,” Flores continued. “Pero eres poco hombre. #CreepyChente”
This doesn’t sound like an apology to me.

For the record, “pero eres poco hombre,” translates to “but you are a little man.”
Rep. Gonzalez and Speaker Pelosi are now left rethinking their entire strategy for taking on Flores in the must-win District for Democrats.
