House Republicans intensify push to fine Pelosi for violating her own metal detector rule

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) made quite a splash in January by announcing that any lawmaker that attempts to circumvent newly-installed metal detectors before entering the House would be fine $5,000 dollars.

While she’s zealously followed through on threats to fine GOP lawmakers objecting to the security measures, Pelosi won’t hold herself to the same standard and has been targeted by Republican legislators who say they aren’t going to let her get away with the shocking double standard. 

Caught in the act

The uproar began on Thursday when Pelosi was caught allegedly entered the lower chamber through the “Speaker’s lobby,” which bypasses the metal detectors she requires all other members of Congress to go through.

“She opened the session on the floor, she came through what is known as the Speaker’s lobby,” Rep. Rodney Davis (R-IL) told Fox News “We are all told, one Republican was fined for doing this just yesterday, that you cannot walk through those entrances unless you are disabled.”

Pelosi blithely ditched her own rule to enter the chamber but did not hesitate to slap a fine on Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-TX) on Friday for bypassing the metal detectors when leaving the House floor to head to the restroom.

Hawk-eyed Republicans immediately raised a ruckus about Pelosi’s clear violation of her own rule, calling for her to pay the fine just as she requires GOP legislators to do.

“Pay the fine Speaker Pelosi,” Rep. Dan Crenshaw (R-TX) wrote on Twitter. Crenshaw later made it clear that he won’t let the matter rest until she agrees to abide by her own dictates.

“Now is this a smart rule? No,” Crenshaw explained to Fox News. “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.”

“She won’t abide by the rules herself so we’re going to make a huge push for her to actually have to pay that fine,” the Texas representative concluded.

Holding hypocrites accountable

This isn’t the first time Pelosi has been busted breaking the rules she wants everyone else to follow. She came under heavy fire last summer for ignoring her home city’s COVID-19 rules in order to get her hair done privately in a San Francisco salon, despite all salons in the city being shut down by Democrat leadership for safety reasons.

Despite the obvious flouting of rules she pushed on a national level, Pelosi was never required to apologize for her misstep and acted as if it never happened, and she’s attempting to do the same in regard to this most recent incident.

Pelosi has not publicly commented on accusations that she circumvented her own House rule — despite the House voting on Tuesday to approve the rule requiring all members of the lower chamber to pass through the security devices before entering the floor — and she likely has no plans to do so in the future.

    3. Absolutely and of the highest order. What all you peasants don’t realize is the queen makes the rules for all that fall below her. She is not only a devout catholic, she is above the pope, and not far from being able to tell god what to do. She can do as she pleases and all you peasants can do is whine.

  4. Nancy 2 face does what she wants but wants everyone else to abide by the rules. When in GOD’s name will the dumocraps realize what she’s doing to everyone in congress. Talk about dictatorship, she’s it in SPADES. And yet she crams down our throats that NO ONE IS ABOVE THE LAW. NANCY 2 FACE

    1. I totally agree.
      Pelosi SHOULD BE FINED at least 10 times the amount which SHE FINED another (lower-ranking) House member for NOT obeyng NANCY-2-FACE’s SAME “LAW”. She is (the poorest excuse for) the SPEAKER OF THE HOUSE! the #1 Representative! Main Leaders are held to a higher level of accountability.
      OOPS That’s not “politically correct” is it —- accountability.

  5. Do as I say, NOT as I do….Nancy and all the democrats are two-faced lying hypocrites. Nancy is a dictator. America does NOT want this. You and the rest of the democrats AND rinos NEED to go. You are destroying our country!!!!

  6. Nancy Pelosi is above it all. She does what she wants, when she wants, and however she wants. YOU, however, have no authority to do ANYTHING she doesn’t approve of. She is the real Nazi communist dictator! Getting her out of office tomorrow wouldn’t be soon enough. 😠😠😠😠😠😠😠😠😠😠😠😠

  8. All posts are right on target! Keep on her till she pays up! If she doesn’t impeach her for dereliction of duty and “ breaking house rules”. She is NOT above the law!

  9. Is she not amusing in a maniacal way? She’s such a maniac for RULES she makes, and breaks. then has the audacity to fine others who break HER MAGISTY’S RULES!! WOW, that’s not just hypocricy, but dictatorship!! I find it intolerable that we have so many in high positions who are willing to allow this poor old woman to dictate her will and let it go at that!!

  10. Funny how our political leaders are above the laws, that we the people are to live with. Explore our laws and the laws the democrats are breaking. They have become a mockery of the world.


    1. Yes she’s just like her nephew Gavin. Who’s going to be the former governor of California after we get him out of office. For exactly the same thing, being a hypocrite! Making rules for everyone else, but not following your own rules.
      Not surprising that people are waking up to the hypocrisy of the Demoncraps.

  12. Sorry folks my comments were censored by the secret police. So much for the first amendment. This for both Nancy and Hillary, Karma wins in the end. What goes around comes around.

  13. You all just can’t help grasping at straws, can you. Putin has you right by the genitals along with the UnAmerican Digest which can’t stand any comments that don’t agree with its drivel.

  14. Nancy,crybaby chuck, a dumbo Adam,biden,& HIS WHORE OF VICEPRESIDENT & KILLERY CLINTON need to go to JAIL &lose the KEYS !!!!!!

  15. I totally agree, they all must obey all the laws just like the people that pay them , if not then they should b removed from office.

  16. Time for Nancy to live by the rules she blithely makes for others to follow. She IS NOT ABOVE the law, or even the house rules. Tack on an extra $5,000 day that she doesn’t pay up by way of penalty.

  17. Make her pay double, then rescind “ her rules” she makes up! Enough already, she is totally unfit to be speaker! Impeach her!!!!

  18. Democrats are running scared now ,bob wire encircles them, national guard protect them, metal protectors in the hallway corridors….why because they know the election was stolen and are fearful it’s going catch up with them, guilt paranoia runs our country now….WOW

  19. In most high level positions there are certain years you are allowed to work; but not in high level American Government positions. It seems in those jobs the older you get the more you get paid and the less work you do. But there is a problem in that; these older people get useless, minds start to go, and they can’t do their job anymore. So even Pelosi needs to go; she has seen better days; though no one knows when those days were. Pelosi truly must believe she is better than anyone else and can do as she likes without thought to rules or punishment; even her own rules. America can no longer support someone such as Pelosi in our leadership; she needs to be taken out of office along with all those who have sent their whole lives in office and are too old to do a good job any longer.

  20. I believe God has a place for pelosi and it is not a good place at all or one iota good . God does not like hypocrites and I think she is the queen of the hypocrites of the world

  21. She is queen of the garbage pit of democrats. Can’t wait until I can pee on her grave. THAT I would stand in line for!
