Pelosi Thinks She's Above The Rules She Makes
A group of Republicans are calling for House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Cali.) to be fined after they say she broke her own newly implemented rules requiring members to pass through metal detectors before entering the House chamber.
The Republicans sent a letter to Acting Sergeant-at-Arms Timothy Blodgett requesting the fine, arguing Pelosi should have to abide by the same rules she pushed to implement.
"Yesterday, at approximately 9:59 am, multiple members observed the Speaker of the House entering the House Chamber without completing security screening,” the Republicans wrote on Friday.
“What was observed was a clear violation of House Resolution 73 and you are required by House Rules to impose this fine. Please inform us once the fine has been assessed," they added. "We look forward to a prompt response to this inquiry.”
Blodgett responded by telling the members that he has not received a complaint from the Capitol Police about a violation by Pelosi.
"House Sergeant at Arms imposes the fine after receiving an unusual occurrence report from the United States Capitol Police (USCP). An unusual incident report from the Capitol Police is appended to the document sent to the Member providing notice of the fine," he wrote.
"Only the USCP can determine whether an individual has failed to complete security screening as only the USCP has sufficient training to determine compliance with USCP screening procedures. I have directed that the USCP produce and provide unusual incident reports on any individual who fails to complete security screening without exception. I have not received any unusual incident report from the USCP concerning the Speaker of the House."
Pelosi's office couldn't even be bothered with this question as they referred requests to Blodgett's response.
Since the USCP report to Pelosi there is very little chance they are going to go against their own boss. As you can see with Pelosi's actions she believes she can require people to do whatever she wants while she herself is above the rules.
Republican representatives are currently facing fines for the same exact violations while oddly the USCP have not observed Nancy's actions.
Some one needs to knock Pelosi off her high horse and expel her from the peoples House. She is nothing more than a state representative of California that has paid off her Democratic colleagues to be the face of the party.
