Republicans are promising a "huge push" to pressure House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., to pay the fine she imposed for bypassing magnetometers installed after the Capitol riot to enter the House floor.
Rep. Rodney Davis, R-Ill., detailed to Fox News his firsthand account of watching the speaker enter the House floor from a forbidden entrance on Thursday.
"She opened the session on the floor, she came through what is known as the Speaker’s lobby," Davis said. "We are all told, one Republican was fined for doing this just yesterday, that you cannot walk through those entrances unless you are disabled."
Rep. Louie Gohmert, R-Texas, was slapped with a $5,000 fine Friday for bypassing metal detectors when he said he’d left the House floor to use the bathroom.
Davis called Pelosi’s actions part of a "typical good for thee, not for me type of attitude that comes out of San Francisco."
"Pay the fine Speaker Pelosi," Rep. Dan Crenshaw, R-Texas, wrote on Twitter.
Crenshaw told Fox News Pelosi should pay the fine because her action was "against her own rules."
"Now is this a smart rule? No. Is this a rule that makes sense? No of course not. But that’s not the point, the point is they’re her rules. She’s literally confiscated property in the form of money, which we think is unconstitutional, but in any case they’re doing it," the Texas Republican continued.
