WASHINGTON D.C. – Did Nancy Pelosi shove a newly elected GOP congresswoman’s daughter for while taking a photo?
Rep. Mayra Flores (R-TX) accused Nancy Pelosi of pushing her daughter to the side while posing at her swearing in ceremony.
Flores said in a tweet, “I am so proud of my strong, beautiful daughter for not allowing this to faze her. She continued to smile and pose for the picture like a Queen.”

The video shows Pelosi getting ready to take a posed picture next to Flores’ daughter and it appears she extends her elbow into the child’s shoulder.
Flores became the first Mexican-born member of the US Congress after winning a special election against democrat Dan Sanchez. This congressional seat was vacant after Rep. Filemon Vela retired.
Pelosi did congratulate Flores on the achievement saying, “It’s a great honor to welcome Congresswoman Flores to the Capital and to the Congress of the United States with great congratulations.”
