Your Daily Gohmert

Screwie Louie just made the history books:

GOP Reps. Gohmert and Clyde fined $5K for bypassing House metal detectors

GOP Reps. Louie Gohmert and Andrew Clyde were fined $5,000 for bypassing newly-installed metal detectors as they entered the House floor, a senior Democratic aide told NBC News on Friday.

The lawmakers are the first members of Congress that have been fined for not following the added security measures put in place by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., following the violent Jan. 6 insurrection at the Capitol, which led to fives deaths during the attack and in the immediate aftermath.

Representatives for Gohmert, of Texas, and Clyde, of Georgia, did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

I bet.

      They’re not allowed to, unless there’s an immediate, imminent threat of harm to a member of the public, or of congress, or to the Sargent-at-Arms, or anyone else present.
      He’s even bragged about this new rule having no “teeth” and being next to useless. “They can’t touch me, they can’t come near me, and if they try, they’ll be out of their job so fast their heads will spin,” or words to that effect.

      And as for deducting the fine from their pay, instead of campaign funds or other sources, well, that’s never been done before, so no precedent exists, nor is there a protocol, which means it needs to be formally stated as an Official Rule of Behavior, or legislated into Law.

    How about this. If you bypass the metal detectors you cannot participate in any debate, committee meeting or vote.

    These stupid, arrogant turds who want to bypass metal detectors should not only pay fines, they should have to perform community service, like work in a soup kitchen or Covid ward. But I wouldn’t wish them on those already suffering people after all.
