Yesterday, a bolshy congresscritter from Florida made a comment that many took to be a threat and witness tampering.
He was called out by many and he went on to double and triple down on his comments. He basically didn't care that he was potentially getting himself into legal hot water.
3 hours later, Pelosi made a statement which didnt mention him by name but everyone knew what she was on about.
A couple of hours after that, like a good boy, the congresscritter humbly apologised.
I know that Pelosi is the speaker of the house : what I dont know is how she was able to bring this twit to heel. What power does she hold over him that she was able to smack him down in such an effective manner ?
