And two of them are suing the Speaker.
From Congressman Louie Gohmert: “It actually sets up a system where they can literally keep Republicans from voting. Now they could keep Democrats from voting, but they never do that.”
This is the left. This is what they do. Totalitarianism, oppression, subjugation.

Pelosi Using New Security Rules to Keep Some House Republicans from Voting
And two of them are suing the Speaker. From Congressman Louie Gohmert: “It actually sets up a system where they can literally keep Republicans from voting. Now they could keep Democrats from voting, but they never do that.”
By: Washington Times, June 15, 2021:
Two Republicans announced a lawsuit Monday challenging fines slapped on them for violating the House’s new security screening rules, saying someone has to stand up to what they see as an increasingly imperial way that Speaker Nancy Pelosi has run the chamber.
In this case, they say, Republicans have missed being able to cast their votes on the floor because they’ve been delayed by the magnetometers, or “mags,” that now guard entrances to the chamber. The effect, they say, is Mrs. Pelosi has silenced their constituents’ voice on those occasions — and it’s been aimed at Republicans.
“It actually sets up a system where they can literally keep Republicans from voting. Now they could keep Democrats from voting, but they never do that,” Mr. Gohmert, a Texas Republican in his ninth term, told The Washington Times, adding that “the courts have got to step in.”
“We report to our districts. We do not report to the speaker of the House,” said Mr. Clyde, a first-term Georgia congressman.
The lawsuit, which Mr. Clyde had telegraphed earlier this spring, says the fines and the mandatory screening are unconstitutional, violating both the 27th Amendment, which prohibits a lawmaker’s pay from being changed during Congress, and Article I, which prohibits a lawmaker’s arrest while traveling to official business.
They’re working with Ken Cuccinelli, the former attorney general of Virginia who was most recently the acting deputy secretary at Homeland Security, on the case.
