Congressman Lloyd Smucker fined $5,000 for breaking security rules at U.S. Capitol

Lancaster County Congressman Lloyd Smucker has been tagged with a $5,000 fine for violating new security protocols at the U.S. Capitol last week. According to documents released Monday by the House Ethics Committee, the fine arises from an incident on May 19 in which two Capitol Police Security officers reported Smucker walked by their metal detectors to go into the House chamber to cast a vote, and ignored them when they tried to get his attention to complete the screening.

Congressman Lloyd Smucker of Lancaster County is a problem solver no more [editorial]

As LNP | LancasterOnline reported last week, U.S. Rep. Lloyd Smucker “quietly left a bipartisan caucus formed to help bridge the gap between Republicans and Democrats in the U.S. House of Representatives. The move follows Smucker’s appointment this year to the powerful House Ways and Means Committee and to a leadership post on the National Republican Congressional Committee — two positions typically reserved for party loyalists and not necessarily lawmakers committed to working with members of the other party on legislation. It also comes after Smucker joined 137 other House Republicans early on Jan. 7 to object to Pennsylvania’s electoral votes being awarded to President-elect Joe Biden, a vote cast less than 12 hours after a violent attack on the U.S. Capitol by supporters of President Donald Trump. Smucker was last listed as a member of the Problem Solvers Caucus on Feb. 8, according to the Internet Archive.”

‘The Snake’ and Lloyd Smucker [letter]

As I look out upon the frozen, snow-covered fields of Lancaster County, a song from 1968 by Al Wilson comes to mind. “The Snake” told the story of a woman on her way to work who saw a poor, half-frozen snake. “She cried, ‘I’ll take you in and I’ll take care of you.’ ”
