Speaker Nancy Pelosi will have to defend her decision to fine three Republican legislators for violating the House’s “mask mandate” which previously went against CDC guidance. The Republicans plan to sue Pelosi for the unfair fining.
GOP Reps. Marjorie Taylor Grene, Ralph Norman, and Thomas Massie will sue Pelosi in the District of Columbia’s U.S. District Court following Pelosi fining them $500 for not weaning masks while on the House floor.
The Republican legislators argue the unconstitutionality of Pelosi’s rule. They also want the fines to be dismissed.
The said members of Congress recently lost their battle over mask fines against Pelosi. It happened when their apples didn’t move forward in the House Ethics Committee.
The lawmakers were fined in May. In June, they challenged the fines, citing the CDC guidance at the time, saying fully vaccinated individuals don’t have to wear masks in their daily activities.
Pelosi imposed the fines despite going around government buildings without masks. One such instance was a White House event she attended in May.
