Well, would ya look at that!
Nancy Pelosi, our precious House Speaker, once again believes herself to be exempt from rules she expects everyone else to abide by!
Because she's THAT important!
Yes, our favorite Bay Area politician led the way in adding extra security measures at the Capitol after the DEADLY January 6th riots. This included the addition of metal detectors which must be passed through by Members of Congress before entering the House floor. And if Members of Congress bypass these metal detectors, as many Republicans have, well, Pelosi's rule fines these members UP TO $10,000 FOR DOING SO.
WELL, GUESS WHO JUST BYPASSED THE METAL DETECTORS?
YOU GUESSED IT: NANCY PELOSI DID!
Great guess by the way!
Representative Rodney Davis witnessed Pelosi's entrance, and told Fox News:
"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."
And now Republicans are calling for Pelosi to pay the $5,000 fine HER OWN RULES require her to pay.
You gotta love Dan Crenshaw. He went on to tell Fox News:
"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."
