Pelosi shamelessly lies about who was responsible for killing George Floyd

Becket Adams:
I “absolutely, positively” will not apologize, a defiant Pelosi said Wednesday in an interview on MSNBC.
“The fact is,” she continued, complaining that the GOP's police reform efforts have been unserious, “I think you, frankly, in the press have given them far too much credit for a bill that does nothing.”
To hear Pelosi say it, you would think that Floyd was killed in a Republican state — or at least in a city or county governed in some way by Republicans. In fact, he was killed in a city, county, and state where Democratic officials hold all the levers of power, and it was Republicans who responded quickly to the tragedy by introducing police reform legislation.
...
Floyd was killed on May 25 in Minneapolis, whose mayor, Jacob Frey, is a Democrat — there has not been a Republican mayor there in over 40 years. The Minneapolis City Council has 13 seats, 11 of which are held by Democratic officials. The Hennepin County attorney, Mike Freeman, is a Democrat. Minnesota’s attorney general, Keith Ellison, is a Democrat. The secretary of state, Steve Simon, is a Democrat. The Minnesota lieutenant governor, Peggy Flanagan, is a Democrat. Minnesota Gov. Tim Walz is a Democrat.
Every single one of these individuals still holds public office. And as for the Republican response of Floyd’s death, there are some relevant facts there, too.
Nine days after Floyd was killed by police officers, Scott, along with Republican Sens. Chuck Grassley, Joni Ernst, and James Lankford, reintroduced his 2017 bill, the Walter Scott Notification Act, which had been drafted in response to the indefensible police shooting of a man by that name in South Carolina. The bill would require states “receiving federal law enforcement funding” to provide in-depth reports on officer-involved shootings.
Fifteen days after Floyd’s death, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell called on Scott to lead the effort to draft additional bipartisan police reform legislation.
Twenty-three days after Floyd’s death, Scott and six other Republican senators introduced the JUSTICE Act.
...
Pelosi is engaged in the politics of fraud as Democrat operatives continue to destroy monuments and Democrat-controlled cities in their latest Civil War against the US.  Pelosi should be a candidate for the "lie of the year" award.
