Three more Republicans are being slapped with $500 fines by the House sergeant-at-arms for refusing to wear masks on the House floor as part of a protest against House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s refusal to lift the chamber’s mask mandate.

GOP Chair Vote

KEY FACTS

Reps. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.), Thomas Massie (R-Ky.) and Ralph Norman (R-S.C.), all ringleaders of the “free your face” protest, will have $500 subtracted from their paychecks after receiving first-offense warnings for going maskless on Tuesday, a Capitol official told Forbes.

While the fines haven’t been a deterrent for all the anti-mask Republicans, two of the seven who received warnings on Tuesday, Reps. Lauren Boebert (R-Colo.) and Louie Gohmert (R-Texas), were seen wearing their masks on the floor Wednesday.

Massie, Greene and Norman join Mariennette Miller-Meeks (R-Iowa), Brian Mast (R-Fla.) and Beth Van Duyne (R-Texas), who were fined for not wearing masks on Tuesday.

Rep. Marcy Kaptur (D-Ohio), who voted against House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy’s failed resolution to lift the mask rule on Wednesday, became the first Democrat to receive a warning under the rule.

John Kennedy, a spokesperson for Massie, told Forbes they received the first-offense warning for the Tuesday violation but “have not yet received formal communication” about the fine.

Norman spokesperson Austin Higginbotham told Forbes they, too, have not been notified of the fine, but added that Norman is vaccinated and “believes Speaker Pelosi’s rules are neither rooted in science nor common sense.”

Forbes has reached out to spokespeople for Greene and Kaptur for comment.

BIG NUMBER

$2,500. That’s the fine for a third violation of the mask rule. House members make $14,500 a month before tax.

KEY BACKGROUND

Brian P. Monahan, Congress’ attending physician, lifted the mask mandate on most parts of the Capitol complex and House office buildings last week, but Pelosi has said masks will be required in the chamber and committee rooms as long as members remain unvaccinated. While all Democrats have said they’re vaccinated, less than half of Republicans report getting the vaccine, according to a CNN survey.

CRUCIAL QUOTE

“CDC guidance states fully vaccinated people no longer need to wear a mask or physically distance in any setting except where required by governmental or workplace mandate. It is time to update our own workplace mandate,” 34 House Republicans wrote in a letter to Pelosi earlier this month, urging her to “follow the science.”

WHAT TO WATCH FOR

Greene and Massie have both said they have no plans to be vaccinated, with Greene tweeting that Pelosi “cannot force” vaccinations on members or require them to disclose their vaccination status, meaning the mandate is unlikely to be lifted any time soon.
