Reps. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA), Thomas Massie (R-KY), and Ralph Norman (R-SC) don’t like masks. They don’t care that masks help prevent the spread of the deadly coronavirus. Not being concerned about the wellbeing of their constituents, compatriots, or colleagues in Congress, these representatives have decided to sue Speaker Pelosi over the policy that masks must be worn on the floor of the US House of Representatives.

Greene has a lot of time on her hands since she has been stripped of committee assignments; she also loves stoking ire and garnering attention for herself. Massie and Norman simply don’t care about the functioning of government and have chosen to join Greene in this wasteful endeavor, which is merely a way to ingratiate themselves with the basest elements of the QAnon party. One would think these representatives had better things to do with their time, but apparently they do not. The surreal part is that Norman tested positive for COVID four days ago.

   

It’s notable that all three of these congresspersons have received fines for not adhering to the House mask policy, and this seems to be the basis of their complaint. If these representatives cannot even abide by a simple mask policy to avoid fines, it does make one wonder how effective they can possibly be at their jobs as legislators. Also notable is that Chris Wiest, the attorney for Reps. Greene, Massie, and Norman, was previously suspended by both the Ohio and Kentucky bar associations for insider trading, per Politico. It doesn’t speak well of the legislators or their case that they’ve had to resort to a lawyer with a criminal record to represent them.
