"Madam Speaker, come and get me"

Rep. Nancy Mace, R-S.C., posted a video to Twitter Thursday morning stating that she will not go along with the House’s newly-announced mask mandate given that she has had COVID-19 and is fully vaccinated, and she dared House Speaker Nancy Pelosi to do something about it.

Capitol Attending Physician Brian Monahan said in a letter to congressional staffers on Tuesday that in the House chamber, committee meetings and all House office buildings, people must use “a well-fitted, medical-grade filtration mask.” A Capitol Police memo obtained by Fox News said that those who do not comply will be asked to leave, and may be arrested if they do not do so.

“I had COVID, I’ve had two vaccinations, I’m washing my hands, I’m even wearing my mask inside the chamber, but I’m not going to wear it anywhere else. So Madam Speaker, come and get me,” Mace said.
