2. He is one of five right- of-center Dem MEN leading the charge, using former R, now D, Kathleen Rice

and other women as "cover" for their vendetta (esp. Moulton) against Pelosi.

Democratic Rep. Moulton draws fire for campaign to deny Pelosi speaker's job
By Mike DeBonis November 17 at 6:00 AM

Democratic Rep. Seth Moulton, the hard-charging Marine who served four tours of duty in Iraq is leading the challenge to Rep. Nancy Pelosi and her bid for speaker — and is suddenly taking incoming fire from all quarters.

Prominent liberal activists are openly floating a primary challenge to the two-term Massachusetts congressman, the instigator of the nearly 20 Democratic foes to Pelosi and one who helped recruit several of the incoming freshmen opposing her.

Outraged by the treatment of the first female House speaker, Pelosi’s backers have characterized the effort as a sexist putsch and urged calls to Moulton’s office as well as the other male Democratic opponents.

Inside the House, Moulton’s ambition and sharp elbows have long been a subject of his colleagues’ grumbling, and his latest fusillade at Pelosi — this time, after a sweeping electoral win — has angered even some of his admirers.

“Is he rubbing people the wrong way with how he’s perceived in this? I would say, yeah,” Rep. Gerald E. Connolly (D-Va.) said.

“Let me get this straight — 17 or 18 who aren’t happy can block the will of over 200 members of the caucus? Where does that end?” he added. “With his zeal for revolution, there’s a lot of wounded left on the battlefield.”

4. We're going, seeing how we live right down the street

I've been on him since this whole putsch became public. So has my husband, who, incidentally, is also a veteran. We both support Pelosi and WILL support a primary challenge against Seth if he doesn't knock it off.
