ABC News reports:
Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.) has been reprimanded by the House sergeant-at-arms at least 20 times this year for refusing to wear a mask in the chamber, which has added up to $48,000 worth of associated fines.
The House Ethics Committee publicly disclosed on Monday that Greene had been fined at least seven times this year, most recently in late September. But the committee’s public disclosures, which come after lawmakers have had 30 days to file an appeal if they wish, appear to be just a fraction of all of Greene’s mask violations to date.
Greene has been documented not wearing a mask in the House chamber at least 20 times since May. Greene was fined $500 in May for her first offense, with $2,500 penalties imposed for subsequent offenses.
