Max Rose (D-NY) on Andrea Mitchell just now

Won't vote for Pelosi (and implying it is because he is anti-corruption), says there are good leaders on both sides of the aisle, says he won't back down from any of his campiagn promises because he keeps his word.

New Yorkers - Is he always so hyper and negative toward Dem leadership?

He hails from Con stronghold Staten Island and why he ran as a DEm is beyond me unless he thought he couldn't get elected otherwise. And I do take exception to the notion that she is corrupt.

he thinks he'll teach the little lady a lesson. Supposition on my part. What I do know is he'll soon learn that Dems don't like other Dems trash-talking party members, especially their leaders.

given the everyday examples of such. And I've noticed a strident adamancy on his part regarding Speaker Pelosi.

7. He told me months ago that he wouldn't support Pelosi

He's said nothing about corruption (you imply that he implied it, without details), but his electorate is much more conservative than the rest of NYC. Pelosi is seen there as, at best, a symbol of the old Democratic Party. He's advocating for change.
