Earlier today The Iowa Standard reported that Mariannette Miller-Meeks joined Randy Feenstra in signing a letter urging Nancy Pelosi to investigate the 2020 Presidential Election.

Feenstra said the American people deserve confidence in our elections, noting the elections are a “bedrock” of our republic.

Miller-Meeks was originally listed as an incoming member of Congress who signed the letter, leaving Ashley Hinson as the only remaining new member of the Iowa delegation off the list.

However, according to a reporter for the Iowa City Press Citizen, Miller-Meeks’ campaign said they never agreed to sign the letter.

Zachary Oren Smith, the reporter who tweeted out the correction from the Miller-Meeks campaign, said:

“The campaign will not clarify whether Miller-Meeks supports her Republican colleague’s push. I asked the question to Eric Woolson, spokesman for the Miller-Meeks campaign, maybe five times. He just repeated that she didn’t sign the letter.”

Alan Ostergren, who has served as the attorney for the Miller-Meeks campaign, shared Smith’s tweet.

“Unfortunately, incorrect information can spread very quickly on social media,” Ostergren said. “Rep-elect Miller-Meeks did not sign on to this letter.”
