Democrat Congressman Cicilline Ignores COVID Safety

Cicilline is one of the impeachment managers appointed by Democratic House Speaker Nancy Pelosi.

Sitting behind Democratic Congresswoman Yvette Clark, who was advocating to impeach Trump, you could clearly see Cicilline pull down his mask and sneezed into his hand.

After he sneezes, the congressman pulls his mask back up.

Democrats Demand Fines For Not Wearing Masks

More than a few Democrats have called for fines for members of Congress who do not wear a mask while on the floor.

Democratic Congresswoman Pramila Jayapal recently announced she had COVID-19, blamed it on GOP members, and declared that there should be “serious fines” for any member who refuse to wear one.

Jayapal said, “Additionally, any Member who refuses to wear a mask should be immediately removed from the floor by the Sergeant at Arms. This is not a joke.”

“Our lives and our livelihoods are at risk, and anyone who refuses to wear a mask should be fully held accountable for endangering our lives because of their selfish idiocy,” Jayapal claimed.

Wear A Mask Or Pay A Fine

The Hill reported Tuesday, “House Democrats on Tuesday will adopt new rules slapping fines on any lawmakers who refuse to wear masks on the chamber floor.”

“The new guidelines will hit offending lawmakers with a $500 fine on the first offense and $2,500 on the second, to be deducted from the lawmakers’ pay, according to a senior Democratic aide,” The Hill noted.

Republican Congressman Thomas Massie responded by asking if the fines were constitutional.

“How does this not violate the 27th amendment which states: “No law, varying the compensation for the services of the Senators and Representatives, shall take effect, until an election of Representatives shall have intervened.” 

Legal or not, don’t expect any penalties for Democratic Congressman David Cicilline.
