Following the January sixth rebel on the Capitol, Nancy Pelosi determined that there wanted to be stricter security measures within the constructing. Metallic detectors have been put in and every Rep. must cross by earlier than getting into the ground.
Not surprisingly, a lot of Republicans misplaced their minds over the measure. And so they grew much more offended over the fines levied for bypassing the safety checkpoint.
Andrew Cylde (GA) and Louie Gohmert (TX) at the moment are taking it a step farther. The 2 GOP lawmakers are suing the Home Sergeant at Arms, William Walker, over the coverage.
Of their swimsuit, Gohmert and Clyde argue:
“No legislation various the compensation for the companies of the Senators and Representatives shall take impact, till an election of Representatives shall have intervened. Imposing and amassing fines by lowering a member’s wage throughout the time period through which H.R. 73 was enacted constitutes a transparent violation of the Twenty-Seventh Modification’s prohibition in opposition to such wage reductions.”
Neither man is a stranger to controversy. Gohmert is a staunch Trump supporter who helped within the former president’s makes an attempt to overturn the 2020 election. The Texas Rep. even sued Mike Pence in an effort to have the outcomes thrown out.
Clyde not too long ago made waves over his determined try and gaslight the nation on what really went on on January sixth. The Georgia lawmaker stated, “Watching the TV footage of those that entered the Capitol and walked by Statuary Corridor confirmed folks in an orderly style staying between the stanchions and ropes, taking movies and footage. You realize, for those who didn’t know the TV footage was a video from January the sixth, you’ll really suppose it was a traditional vacationer go to.”
