Pelosi is playing dirty games.
In a shocking new discovery, FiveThirtyEight founder Nate Silver dropped a bombshell on House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and accused her of spreading “straight-up misinformation” via her new fundraising emails where she lied and claimed that FiveThirtyEight models favored Democrats in many important Senate races.
Pelosi is basically lying about data which was produced by FiveThirtyEight.
According to National Review, Pelosi blatantly lied in her emails and wrote “Nate Silver’s FiveThirtyEight just announced that Democrats are poised to win SIX Senate seats this November.“
Pelosi further falsely lied and said Democrats will win Pennsylvania, Georgia, Florida, Nevada, New Hampshire, and Ohio.
Nate Silver called her out and said, “This is straight-up misinformation. We have Democrats as heavy underdogs in Florida and Ohio.”
Yeah, this is straight-up misinformation from Pelosi. We have Democrats as heavy underdogs in Florida and Ohio. https://t.co/7IZmaxVRYR

FiveThirtyEight‘s model predicted that Republicans had a 90 percent chance of keeping Republican incumbent Rob Portman’s seat in Ohio and a 94 percent chance of Florida’s Marco Rubio holding his seat as well.
We have always known that Pelosi was a lying old lady but this is too much.
