Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.) is now facing a hefty $2,500 fine for her repeated refusal to adhere to the federal mask mandate requiring face coverings in the House chamber.
The statement by the house reads:
“On August 2, 2021, the Committee received a notification from the Office of the Sergeant at Arms that Representative Marjorie Taylor Greene has been fined pursuant to House Resolution 38 and House Rule II, clause 3(g). Representative Greene did not file an appeal with the Committee prior to the expiration of the time period specified in clause 3(g)(3)(B) of House Rule II. “
Greene previously received a $500 fine in May for violating the mask mandate a second time, which was upheld on appeal by the Ethics Committee, meaning she will be hit with a $2,500 fine for her third offense.
