Marjorie Taylor Greene is racking up bigtime fines for refusing to wear a mask

Ailan Evans, DCNF

Georgia Republican Rep. Marjorie Taylor Green has received twenty fines totaling $48,000 due to violating House mask rules, according to a letter sent to the congresswoman by Sergeant at Arms William Walker and shared with the Daily Caller News Foundation.

Walker sent a letter to Greene dated Oct. 28 informing her that she had received a $500 fine on May 19 for not wearing a mask in the Hall of the House of Representatives, and a $2,500 fine for 19 subsequent violations, totaling $48,000. Walker wrote that he would be notifying the House Ethics Committee along with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, who had issued a rule mandating masks for House lawmakers in May.

House Ethics Committee Chairman Ted Deutch and Ranking Member Jackie Walorski published a notice Monday informing Greene she was required to pay fines for four separate incidents in late September in which the congresswoman violated the House’s mask rules and did not appeal the violations.

When reached for comment, Greene called the mask policy “outrageous and unconstitutional” and said she would continue to disobey the House rule.

“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 told the DCNF.

The House Ethics Committee also published a notice Monday informing Georgia Republican Rep. Andrew Clyde that he was required to pay fines for three mask violations in late September. Clyde’s office did not immediately respond to the DCNF’s request for comment.

Both Greene and Clyde have been outspoken critics of Pelosi’s House rules, with Green in particular repeatedly flouting the body’s mask mandates. Greene also compared those enforcing vaccine mandates to Nazis, a comment for which she apologized.
