Multiple GOP Reps Defy House Face Mask Mandate

Mediaite reports:

Several Republican members of the House flouted the rule on mask-wearing on the floor of the chamber Tuesday.

In a selfie posted on Twitter by Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA), the freshman member of Congress said, “Masks are oppressive and nothing but a political tool. End the oppression!”

Among the maskless were Greene, Lauren Boebert (R-CO), Thomas Massie (R-KY), and Brian Mast (R-FL). First-time offenders face a $500 fine for not wearing a mask on the chamber floor, and a $2500 fine for subsequent offenses.
