House Majority Whip James Clyburn (D-S.C.) must pay a $5,000 fine for allegedly violating new security protocols at the Capitol. According to reports, Congressman Clyburn was reportedly fined earlier this week for avoiding metal detectors before entering the House floor.

The Acting House Sergeant at Arms sent a letter to the Ethics Committee to inform members that Clyburn had been fined and can appeal. Clyburn is the first Democrat to face punishment for violating new rules that were introduced after the January 6 Capitol breach.

The South Carolina lawmaker reportedly plans to appeal.
