Texas must be so proud of their good ol’ boy:

House Ethics rejects Gohmert’s appeal of $5,000 metal detector fine

The House Ethics Committee rejected Rep. Louie Gohmert’s appeal of a $5,000 fine levied against him for evading the new metal detectors outside the House chamber in early February after he stepped out of the chamber to use the nearby restroom and then returned to the floor.

Gohmert filed a colorful and strongly worded five-page letter of appeal to the Ethics panel on Feb. 26 after being notified on Feb. 5 of a fine for a “failure to complete security screening” outside the House chamber one day prior.

My favorite bit of the story:

Gohmert contends that he was fully screened to enter the House chamber, but stepped out of the chamber to use the members-only restroom just outside of the Speaker’s Lobby and returned to the chamber through the Speaker’s Lobby, where there was not a metal detector.

“There are not even tanks on toilets so someone could hide a gun in them like in the Godfather movie,” Gohmert wrote.

Art v. Life is a blurry line for Louie.

Still, odd that he noticed that. Just sayin’.

Screwie Louie will not be deterred from always wearing his tinfoil (10-gallon cowboy) hat.

    Do I have this straight? He left via one door and returned through another?

      If there are routes into the chamber where you can bypass the detectors just by choosing certain doors, they oughta give him a five-dollar tip for exposing weaknesses in security.

  3. Weak, Louie.

    Marjoe “Q” Greene or Lorena “Pew Pew Pew” Boebert would have come up with much, much more concentrated sheer crazy in their appeals.

    It’s always sad to see a former champ try to hang on to his title way past his prime…

    It’s almost like he wanted to be caught!

    Or, you know, he’s an idiot. Either one, really.

    • Or just didn’t have Clemenza on the case:

      Sonny:
      Hey, listen, I want somebody good – and I mean very good – to plant that gun. I don’t want my brother coming out of that toilet with just his dick in his hands, alright?

      Clemenza:
      The gun’ll be there.

    “Gohmert filed a colorful and strongly worded five-page letter”. Colorful? So, he used several different crayons I suppose.

    But did he wash his hands when he was done? We have no way of knowing, and dirty hands alone can do FAR more damage than a few bullets…

    I guess he was thinking about it… or was Boebert pranking him? Inquiring minds want to know.

    It is Gohmert after all, it doesn’t have to make sense…
