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.
