Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene and two other House Republicans are going to have to pay fines for unmasking in the House. The congresswoman, along with Reps. Thomas Massie (R-KY) and Ralph Norman (R-SC) appealed the fines to the House Ethics Committee.

But now that appeal has been denied. From the committee:

On May 20, 2021, the Committee received a notification from the Office of the Sergeant at Arms that Representative Marjorie Taylor Greene has been fined pursuant to House Resolution 38 and House Rule II, clause 3(g). Representative Greene filed an appeal with the Committee on June 18, 2021, after the Committee adopted its written rules. Pursuant to House Resolution 38 and clause 3(g)(3)(C) of House Rule II, upon receipt of an appeal after the Committee adopts its written rules, the Committee has 30 days to consider the appeal, and the fine will be upheld unless the appeal is agreed to by a majority of the Committee.

A majority of the Committee did not agree to the appeal. Pursuant to House Resolution 38 and clause 3(g)(3)(C) of House Rule II, the Committee hereby publishes the required notification and Representative Greene’s written appeal.

House Republicans have repeatedly attacked masks as a way to prevent COVID-19 transmission despite the scientific evidence showing that it saves lives and prevents infection.
