During a recent appearance on Chris Salcedo’s Newsmax show, Georgia GOP Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene mentioned the hefty fines she’s received for violating the House’s mask mandate.
“[Nancy Pelosi] has fined me over $60,500 in mask fines,” Greene said. “I refuse to wear a mask, and Chris, I have to tell you something else — I’m not vaccinated.”
