Bombshell Fox News Report: U.S. Rep. Dan Crenshaw Fined $5,000 For Bypassing Pelosi’s Metal Detectors
(Tea Party 247) – Democrats are professional hypocrites and Nancy Pelosi is the Queen of hypocrisy. While Pelosi has been a staunch supporter of masking up in the name of public health safety, she infamously went sans the mask to get her hair done at a salon last year.
Now, she’s fining GOP members of the house for violating rules she put in place for “security” after Jan. 6 while she is guilty of violating the rules herself but has, of course, never been fined.
US Rep. Dan Crenshaw (R-TX) is the latest to be fined $5,000 for going around metal detectors installed by Pelosi in the wake of the so-called attempted insurrection on Jan. 6.
Guess who else has bypassed Pelosi’s metal detectors? If you guessed Nancy Pelosi, you’re right.
The only difference is, Pelosi doesn’t get slapped with a fine when she does it.
A Fox News report explained that Crenshaw refused to go through the security system she ordered to be installed. The House Committee on Ethics subsequently issued a statement confirming that the fine will be deducted from Crenshaw’s pay.
The statement said, “On September 27, 2021, the Committee received a notification from the Office of the Sergeant at Arms that Representative Dan Crenshaw has been fined pursuant to House Resolution 73. Pursuant to Section 1(a)(3) of House Resolution 73, the Committee hereby publishes the fine notification.”
The resolution was put in place following the orchestrated Jan. 6 “attack” on the Capitol. Thousands of Trump supporters gathered in Washington DC that day to hear the president speak. We all know what happened after at Capitol Hill.
In the months since Jan. 6, Democrats have shamelessly used the incident as a means to ramp up security in DC and have claimed the so-called attack was worse than 9/11 and that Trump supporters are the true threat to the US government.
The beefed up security measures have been an ongoing source of contention among House members and Crenshaw is just the latest to get targeted for his refusal to comply. He wasted no time in highlighting Pelosi’s blatant hypocrisy in not following the rules herself and not facing any fines.
“When you’re a liberal there’s a propensity for action, even if that action is not effective. There’s a propensity for virtue-signaling even when that signaling is not effective,” he said at the time.
Georgia congressman Andrew Clyde is also among the GOP members being fined and harassed by Pelosi. He was fined $15,000 for actions similar to Pelosi’s but he has said he plans to sue her.
At the time, Clyde explained that he broke the rules in order to have standing to sue the Speaker of the House for the double standards.
Texas Rep. Louie Gohmert has also been fined $5,000 for refusing to go through the metal detectors.
Clearly, the issue is that Pelosi makes rules that apparently only GOP members of the House are expected to follow.
The New York Post reported that members of Congress observed Pelosi “entering the House Chamber without completing security screening.”
“We are demanding she face the same fines as every other member of Congress,” the GOP members of the committee said.
According to Fox News, Reps. Rodney Davis, R-Ill., Barry Loudermilk, R-Ga., and Bryan Steil, R-Wis., back then sent a letter to acting House Sergeant-at-Arms Timothy Blodgett requesting he levy fines against the speaker for not following the security protocols all members are required to follow to get to the House floor.
Pelosi claims that she was “wanded” and that was all she needed to do to meet security protocols but she’s a liar and a hypocrite.
