U.S. House of Representatives

2018 election

Mucarsel-Powell was elected to the United States House of Representatives in the 2018 Midterms, defeating moderate RINO Carlos Curbelo by less than 2% of the votes cast[3] after the latter pushed for liberal legislation,[4][5] opposing Donald Trump to the point of mentioning impeachment,[6] and refused support from the president. As Trump said following the defeat of many House Republicans then:[7]

...on the other hand, you had some that decided to 'let's stay away, let's stay away.' They did very poorly. I'm not sure that I should be happy or sad, but I feel just fine about it. Carlos Curbelo... Mike Coffman... too bad, Mike.

Tenure

Mucarsel-Powell backed and voted for the impeachment coup against Donald Trump, claiming that Trump "presents a clear and present danger to our democracy"[8] amidst calls then to investigate Hunter Biden over corrupt Burisma ties. It had been reported as early as July 2018[9] that Mucarsel-Powell's husband Robert took $700,000 from a Ukrainian oligarch accused of ordering contract killings.[10][11][12] In early August 2020, the Federal Bureau of Investigation escalated an investigation into the oligarch.[13]

Rep. Mucarsel-Powell has been the subject of scrutiny and criticism over a potential conflict of interest after favoring a COVID-19 relief package that benefited her husband.[14]

Mucarsel-Powell has spread CCP propaganda amidst the coronavirus pandemic.[15]

She has praised violent rioters amidst the 2020 Leftwing riots.[16]

2020 election

See: 2020 U.S. House elections

Mucarsel-Powell was defeated for re-election in 2020 by Carlos Giménez.[17] Afterwards in a House Democrat conference call, she was reported to have cried and complained over people mispronouncing her name and being "negative" on Twitter.[18]

Quotes

And, you know, no one, no one thought that we were gonna be able to take the establishment — the Republican/Cuban establishment that has taken a hold of Florida politics for more than twenty years.[19]
