Representative Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) has accumulated around $48,000 in fines for repeated violations of the House mask mandate.

The House Sergeant-At-Arms already reprimanded the Georgia representative at least 20 times this year for continually refusing to wear a mask on the House floor.

Last Monday, the House Ethics Committee reported that they fined Taylor Greene at least seven times in 2021. The most recent fine happened last September.

The committee’s public disclosures appear to comprise just a fraction of Taylor Greene’s mask violations. Once the House committee announces the violations, lawmakers have 30 days to appeal the fines.  

which come after lawmakers have had 30 days to file an appeal if they wish, appear to be just a fraction of all of Greene’s mask violations to date.

House Sergeant-at-Arms William Walker issued a letter dated Oct. 28 listing Taylor Greene’s violations of the mask mandate. Walker reported that they have documented the Georgia representative not wearing a mask at least 20 times.

Green received a $500 fine for her first offense last May. Subsequent penalties amounted to $2,500. “You have been observed not wearing a mask on July 29, August 2, September 20, 21, 23, 24, 27, 28, 29, 30, and October 1, 12, 19, 20, 21, 22, 25, 26, and 27, and have been asked by a member of my staff to wear a mask while in the Hall of the House of Representatives on each occasion unless recognized to speak by the chair,” Walker wrote in the letter. Greene later shared this letter with The Hill.

Taylor Greene To Continue Defying Mask Mandates

Earlier this year, Taylor Greene wore masks decorated with “Trump Won” and “Censored” around the Capitol. However, she started foregoing masks despite the mandate.

“I will continue my stand on the House floor against authoritarian Democrat mandates because I don’t want the American people to stand alone,” Greene said in a statement on Monday.

In July 2020, House Democrats established a mask mandate as Several GOP lawmakers continue to refuse to wear masks. Democrats later added fines as Republican lawmakers like Taylor Greene continue to defy the orders. 

Greene Filed Appeal On Her First Fine

Greene filed an appeal with the House Ethics Committee to challenge her first fine last May. However, the panel upheld the violation. Since then, Greene stopped fighting her fines.

She has yet to pay them as well. Other Republican lawmakers that also defied the mask order include Reps. Thomas Massie (KY) and Ralph Norman (SC), filed a lawsuit in July to challenge the constitutionality of the mask fines. 

In addition, Greene isn’t the only House Republican racking up thousands of dollars in fines for the mask mandate. The House Ethics Committee also disclosed that Representative Andrew Clyde (R-GA) is on the hook for $8,000 in total fines.

This is the total for at least four violations of the mask order. Clyde didn’t file any appeals for the mask fines. Clyde did challenge the fines levied on him for his continued refusal to subject him to metal detectors in the Capitol building.

    So by charging Marjorie Taylor Greene, Congress admits that these “Hurd Immunity Vaccines” do not work!!! But they want the general public to get them anyways, I must ask what is Truth behind the vaccines, and the virus?

    The reason I ask is I lost a few elderly loved ones, last year who might of died anyways but until they were put inside of a hospital,or doctors office for a check up, they were still fine.

    I think we’ve seen proof this year that neither masks nor vaccines keep one from getting Covid-19. Best remedy is to keep your immune system strong using a variety of vitamin supplements on a continued regiment.
