Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.) was hit with four fines on Monday for failing to comply with House rules on masks.

By the numbers: House members are fined $500 the first time they break the House pandemic rule and $2,500 is taken from their $174,000 congressional pay each time they commit the offense thereafter — and Greene has been cited at least seven times for this, per the Washington Post.

Details: The House Ethics Committee issued a notice on Monday outlining Greene's fines for three consecutive days when she breached the congressional rule.

  • Greene, who lost an appeal for an earlier mask violation, did not appeal the fines, according to the panel.

The big picture: Capitol physician Brian Monahan announced in July that the House was reimposing its indoor mask requirement for meetings in enclosed spaces, as the Delta variant surged across the U.S.

What she's saying: "I will continue my stand on the House floor against authoritarian Democrat mandates," Greene said in a statement to news outlets.
