GOP Reps Take Challenge To Pelosi’s Mask Mandate To Supreme Court

  • Three Republican representatives asked the Supreme Court recently to hear their lawsuit against former Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi over fines imposed for violating the House of Representatives mask mandate in 2021.
  • Republican Reps. Thomas Massie of Kentucky, Majorie Taylor Green of Georgia and Ralph Norman of South Carolina sued after they were fined $500 each for entering the House floor without masks in violation of a rule Pelosi imposed in 2020.
  • Their petition asks the Supreme Court to consider whether the rule violates the 27th Amendment’s requirement that changes in compensation not take effect until after the next election.
