Republican congressman vows legal challenge to House metal detectors

This discussion thread was locked as off-topic by DonViejo (a host of the Latest Breaking News forum).

Source: Politico

A Georgia congressman who was fined for refusing to walk through metal detectors to enter the House floor said Monday he is preparing to challenge the penalties in court.

The announcement from Rep. Andrew Clyde (R-Ga.) comes after his appeal was denied by the House Ethics Committee, which he says gives him legal standing to move forward. The congressman said he believes the metal detector stations are unconstitutional.

“While my team and I continue to await an announcement of a fine levied on the Speaker, we are preparing for the next stage of this fight. I will take my case to federal court where I am confident justice will be served,” Clyde said in a statement.

As part of the sweeping changes enacted by House Speaker Nancy Pelsoi (D-Calif.) in the aftermath of the Jan. 6 riot at the Capitol building, members can be subjected to heafty fines — $5,000 for the first violation and $10,000 for additional infractions — for avoiding the metal detectors. The fines are deducted automatically from lawmakers' paychecks.

1. This would pave the way for abolishing all metal detector checks

Is this really what these dumb-asses want?

8. Exactly.

And it would also open the doors for no more TSA checks for air travel. Judges will laugh this case out of court; there is probably not a courthouse in the US that doesn't have metal detectors that judges have to pass through every day.

and then give Andrew Clod a blistering lecture about wasting their court's time with a frivolous lawsuit and then fine them the absolute maximum court costs and then some. And make him pay attorney's fees for both sides!

US Constitution
Article 1 Section 5

""Each House may determine the Rules of its Proceedings, punish its Members for disorderly Behaviour[sic], and, with the Concurrence of two thirds, expel a Member.""

25. Exactly

These Republican jerks don't understand anything about the Constitution.

They haven't read it.

They haven't studied it.

They don't know its history.

They don't understand its complexities nor its simplicities.

All these idiots know is to claim a rights violation when they don't like something.

Hey, dumb asses! That's not how it works.

13. Apparently a lot of the QGOP thought the 1-6 thugs were going to be able to distinguish their own...

...among the 100 Senators and 435 Congresscritters. I think if the insurrectionists had managed to breach the House and Senate while everybody was still in there, the QGOP would have been in for a brief rude awakening. Brief, as in just before they were murdered.

Even the Supreme Court won't touch this case.

10. As stated above...good luck dumbass, but...

...he's already accomplished what he truly wanted. Notoriety. Countless bullshit memes will be produced spewing nonsense about how this is unconstitutional and Democrats are evil and stuff. He, and others, will fundraise off of this idiocy.

This is how they freaking roll. They KNOW what comes out of their mouths is crap. It doesn't matter. We are not the ones that they care about. Their followers are morons without the slightest hint of intellectual curiosity. A meme is all they need to know their version of the truth.

18. One Irony that seems to escape notice is exactly the kind of coward he is.

He wants to subject everyone working in the building to the possibility of random death by firearms or other weapons while he pretends to be the righteous warrior by wearing one himself. The truth is he fears those who wouldn't wear one far more than he does those who will.

That's a special class of chicken shit. The press should make this clear to one and all, but that would mean the MSM had figured it out too, rather than pandering to the gunny right wing.

24. I'll bet the ones complaining the loudest are the ones that are carrying and the ones that......

..... want the metal detector gone. But if and when one of the cowboys ever draw and point their weapon to someone in the chamber they will be the first to whine about it.

Under the wrong circumstances, I believe any of those carrying could and would fire a shot if they felt threatened.

THEN WHAT?

29. Tragically, this yahoo represents the district in which I live

He replaced the equally loathsome Doug Collins, who ran for the Senate and failed miserably. The only thing that makes "Congressman" Clyde look good is the incumbent in the adjacent 14th Congressional District, the horrifying Marjorie Taylor Greene.
