Two of the Country’s Most Reviled Congressmen Are Suing Sergeant at Arms Over House Metal Detector Rules
Following the January sixth insurrection on the Capitol, Nancy Pelosi chose that there required to be more stringent precaution in the structure. Metal detectors were set up and each Rep. would need to travel through prior to going into the flooring.
Not remarkably, a variety of Republicans lost their minds over the procedure. And they grew a lot more upset over the fines imposed for bypassing the security checkpoint.
Andrew Cylde (GA) and Louie Gohmert (TX) are now taking it an action further. The 2 GOP legislators are taking legal action against your home Sergeant at Arms, William Walker, over the policy.
In their match, Gohmert and Clyde argue:
“No law varying the compensation for the services of the Senators and Representatives shall take effect, until an election of Representatives shall have intervened. Imposing and collecting fines by reducing a member’s salary during the term in which H.R. 73 was enacted constitutes a clear violation of the Twenty-Seventh Amendment’s prohibition against such salary reductions.”
Neither male is a complete stranger to debate. Gohmert is a strong Trump fan who assisted in the previous president’s efforts to reverse the 2020 election. The Texas Rep. even took legal action against Mike Pence in an effort to have actually the outcomes tossed out.
Clyde just recently made waves over his desperate effort to gaslight the nation on what in fact went on on January sixth. The Georgia legislator mentioned, “Watching the TV footage of those who entered the Capitol and walked through Statuary Hall showed people in an orderly fashion staying between the stanchions and ropes, taking videos and pictures. You know, if you didn’t know the TV footage was a video from January the 6th, you would actually think it was a normal tourist visit.”
