Marjorie Taylor Greene hit with 4 more fines over House mask rule
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.
- Greene has repeatedly railed against mask and COVID-19 vaccination mandates.
- She tweeted last month that she faced $25,000 in fines for breaking the House mask rule.
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.
