Republicans Gohmert, Clyde Sue Pelosi Over Metal Detector Fines

Reps. Louie Gohmert (R-Texas) and Andrew Clyde (R-Ga.) are challenging House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) for imposing fines on them for which they claim she has no authority.

“Article I, Section VI, of the U.S. Constitution mandates that a Member of Congress cannot be detained on the way to the House Chamber for a session and it is even more important that Members not be intentionally impeded from voting on behalf of the over 700,000 constituents we represent,” Gohmert said in a June 14 statement.
