Nancy ‘Do As I Say Not As I Do’ Pelsoi

Reps. Rodney Davis (R-Illinois), Barry Loudermilk (R-Georgia), and Bryan Steil (R-Wisconsin) – accused Pelosi of not going through the newly installed metal detector on Thursday in a letter to the acting sergeant at arms.

“Yesterday at approximately 9:59 am multiple members observed the Speaker of the House entering the House Chamber without completing security screening,”  

However, in a response to the congressmen, Acting Sergeant at Arms Timothy P. Blodgett appeared to say Pelosi would not be fined as only the Capitol Police can “determine whether an individual has failed to complete security screening.” According to Blodgett, only the Capitol Police have “sufficient training to determine compliance” with security protocols.

Earlier on Friday, Reps. Louie Gohmert (R-Texas) and Andrew Clyde (R-Georgia) became the first House members to be hit with the $5,000 fine, which will be docked directly from their pay. 

Gohmert admitted to skipping the metal detector on one occasion because he had only stepped out to use the bathroom. He added that he will appeal the fine.

“Unlike in The Godfather, there are no toilets with tanks where one could hide a gun in the restroom in the Speaker’s Lobby off the floor. Re-entry onto the floor, where there is no magnetometer, should have been a non-issue,” 

Rep. Thomas Massie (R-Kentucky) tweeted on Saturday.

The GOP House members who accused Pelosi of breaking protocol said the sergeant at arms’ response proves the “rules do not apply” to the House Speaker.

“Just proves this new rule is being arbitrarily enforced & clearly does not apply to all members. It was put in place for political gain, not for safety,” 

“Pay the fine Speaker Pelosi,” Rep. Dan Crenshaw (R-Texas) added
