Bourdeaux folds to Pelosi

Carolyn Bourdeaux just folded faster than a cheap suit.

Literally 24 hours after putting on a big show and threatening to vote against Pelosi’s $3.5 trillion plan, Bourdeauxcaved and voted for it anyway.

As a quick reminder: all 10 “moderates” said they wouldn’t advance the Pelosi spending plan unless the infrastructure bill passed the House first. And no – that didn’t happen.

American Action Network is running $850,000 of TV advertising in GA-07 urging Bourdeaux to stop the plan as part of a national issue advocacy campaign opposing Pelosi’s $3.5 trillion bill. (Watch the ads here and for more details see here)

“Carolyn Bourdeaux made it clear that she works for Nancy Pelosi, not her constituents,” said AAN Communications Director Calvin Moore. “Bourdeaux promised she would stop Pelosi’s socialist wish list in its tracks, then broke herword and voted for it less than 24 hours later. If Bourdeaux cares at all about her integrity, then she needs to do the right thing and vote no on Pelosi’s plan when it returns again for a full vote.”
