    Unless the statute actually has it written into that would ban someone from the office then she could.
    there is nothing that says a convicted felon cannot run for office.
    facts don't care about your feelings.

    My mistake, I assumed a convicted felon could not hold office, since most cannot even vote.

    There have been two in history according to Wikipedia, charged with that law, and neither of them has been convicted.
    The left says the right is full of racists and bigots and have no tolerance. Nobody from the right organizes interference with gay pride parades, or other leftist events. The left however always has a group interfering with events organized by the right. Who are the tolerant ones I ask? Most certainly not the left.

    I should have been more specific in attacking the LEADERS who made them happen.

    The Logan Act (1 Stat. 613, 18 U.S.C. 953, enacted January 30, 1799) is a United States federal law that criminalizes negotiation by unauthorized American citizens with foreign governments having a dispute with the United States. The intent behind the Act is to prevent unauthorized negotiations from undermining the government's position.

    technically by law the president and those with his direct orders are the only one that have the ability to negotiate with foreign countries.
    If in fact she was trying to negotiate with another country he is in violation of the logan act.

    not sure what the penalty is though. it was just a fine for 5k dollars.
    but it might have changed.

    in any event it is a crime according to the law.
    This isn't the first time she has violated the Logan Act. She also made two separate trips to Syria in order to give Assad aid and comfort.

    She is part of the house that passes laws.
    That does not make her immune from treason.

    I'll admit, I don't know law well, but I don't see her as someone who can be prosecuted under that act.

    She won't be prosecuted because the DOJ won't do their job, as usual. However, she should be.

    Article I, Section 6, Clause 1 of the US Constitution specifically states treason to be an exception with regard to being privileged from arrest:
    The Senators and Representatives shall receive a compensation for their services, to be ascertained by law, and paid out of the treasury of the United States. They shall in all cases, except treason, felony and breach of the peace, be privileged from arrest during their attendance at the session of their respective Houses, and in going to and returning from the same; and for any speech or debate in either House, they shall not be questioned in any other place.

    Please.

    I most definitely do not want to defend that PoS Pelosi, but I don't see how, someone who makes laws in the USA, are considered a violator of that law.
