Fourth GOP Rep Fined $5K For Evading Metal Detector

The Hill reports:

Rep. Virginia Foxx (N.C.) is the fourth House GOP lawmaker to be issued a $5,000 fine for failing to complete a security screening before entering the House chamber, according to a notice published by the House Ethics Committee on Tuesday.

According to the Capitol Police report documenting the incident last Thursday, Foxx set off a metal detector stationed in front of a door leading to the House chamber.

Two Capitol Police officers tried to stop Foxx, but she threw her bag underneath a table near the metal detector and still went into the chamber. Foxx then returned to the metal detector and allegedly told the officers, “Good thing no one stopped me.”

That same year she declared Obamacare to be worse than terrorism. In subsequent years she appeared here regularly for her insane claims during the battle against DADT and for same-sex marriage.
