Rep. Andrew Clyde

Representative for Georgia’s 9th District

pronounced AN-droo // klīd


Clyde is the representative for Georgia’s 9th congressional district (view map) and is a Republican. He has served since Jan 3, 2021. Clyde is next up for reelection in 2022 and serves until Jan 3, 2023.

Clyde is among the Republican legislators who participated in the months-long, multifarious attempted coup following the 2020 presidential election. On January 6, 2021 in the hours after the insurrection at the Capitol, Clyde voted to reject the state-certified election results of Arizona and/or Pennsylvania (states narrowly won by Democrats), which could have changed the outcome of the election. These legislators pumped the lies and preposterous legal arguments about the election that motivated the January 6, 2021 insurrection at the Capitol. The January 6, 2021 insurrection at the Capitol disrupted Congress’s count of electors that determined the outcome of the presidential election with the goal to prevent President Joe Biden from taking office.

Misconduct

Since 2021, Rep. Clyde was fined many times for failing to wear a mask on the House floor during the COVID-19 pandemic. The Rep. appealed his fines several times, but all have been denied. With a $500 fine for the first time and a $2,500 fine for each subsequent time, it is believed that, as of June 2022, Clyde has been fined at least $88,000, taken out of his congressional salary.
