WASHINGTON – Democrat House Speaker “Lady” Nancy Pelosi, brazenly removed her mask to pose for a photo with Texas’s newest congressman, appearing to violate Capitol Police’s mask policy.
The day after Capitol Police were directed to arrest staffers and visitors who refused to wear masks on the House side of the Capitol, Lady Pelosi removed her mask while taking a photo with newly minted Rep. Jake Ellzey, R-Texas. This incident recently follows Lady Pelosi’s imperious order to impose fines on House members who go mask less on the House side of Congress. Although the photo opportunity was outside the House chamber, it is a typical display of elitism in which there are rules for the rest, but not for Lady Pelosi.
An unnamed source in the Speaker’s office declined direct comment but hinted that behind the curtain rules are often flaunted by Lady Pelosi. These actions would seem to echo the behavior caught on camera last August when her Ladyship was caught mask less in a San Francisco hair salon that was closed during the pandemic and required masks indoors.
Republicans were outraged when Pelosi reinstated the House floor mask mandate earlier this week. Current fines are $500 for each infraction.
