Kentucky Rep. Thomas Massie fined $500 for refusing to wear mask on House floor

Rep. Thomas Massie got fined $500 for refusing to wear a mask in the U.S. House of Representatives’ chamber this week.

Massie spokesman John Kennedy provided a copy of a letter Thursday from the House sergeant-at-arms notifying the Kentucky Republican about the fine and his option to appeal it to the House Ethics Committee.

The sergeant-at-arms’ letter said Massie was warned Tuesday he was violating a House rule requiring masks be worn. “You were then again observed not wearing a mask on May 19, and were asked by a member of my staff to wear a mask while in the Hall of the House of Representatives unless recognized to speak by the chair,” the letter said.

Hence the fine.
