Its Official, Nancy Pelosi is Being SUED and MUST Be Held Accountable

Democrat Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi is officially being sued in federal court by three House Republicans for her unconstitutional mask mandates.

The Lawsuit

Three House Republicans who were fined for violating Pelosi’s mask rules have decided to take her to federal court after Pelosi denied their appeals.

Pelosi is being sued in the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia by Kentucky Rep. Thomas Massie, Georgia Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene, and South Carolina Rep. Ralph Norman.

“Yesterday, my colleagues & I filed out lawsuit against [Pelosi] over her unconstitutional mask mandate. Today, she reinstated it. Americans are sick & tired of being political pawns. We’re fighting to stop it, that’s why we’re suing Pelosi,” Congresswoman Greene tweeted on July 28.

The lawsuit also targets House Sergeant at Arms William Walker and Chief Administrative Officer Catherine Szpindor.

Massie, who revealed that he was fined $500 for not wearing a mask on the House floor in May, stated that the group is filing the lawsuit to make a broader point about government overreach during the COVID pandemic.

“We’re 18 months into this, and they’re still trying to use emergency executive power instead of going back to legislatures and passing laws,” Massie said, referring to Pelosi and authoritarian Democrat governors who have issued mask mandates. “It’s about the principle, but the principle is broader. It’s the whole country.”

The Kentucky congressman claims that the fines were unconstitutional because the money was taken directly out of the GOP representatives’ salaries, a move that he believes violates the 27th amendment.

According to reporting from the Washington Times, “The 27th Amendment prohibits changes to congressional compensation in the middle of the House’s two-year session, which lawmakers are serving.”

“The 27th Amendment is, at its heart, an anti-corruption measure, designed to prevent Congress from increasing, decreasing or limiting compensation as a cudgel against political opponents,” the lawsuit states. “Despite this clear and unequivocal prohibition, that is precisely what occurred in this matter.”

Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene, on the other hand, is arguing that the mandate reeks of hypocrisy, as Speaker Pelosi was photographed without a mask on the same day that Greene was fined for not wearing her mask.

“It’s nothing but a big show,” Rep. Greene told The Washington Times. “It’s not about COVID at all. It’s all about her having the gavel on her hand, and her being able to control everybody on the cameras.”
