U.S. Rep. Bob Good on Thursday encouraged a group of Rappahannock County High School students to not wear masks in school, saying during his visit the administration “can’t stop everyone.”
“If nobody in Rappahannock complies [with the mask mandate], they can’t stop everyone,” Good (R-5th District) told the students. “If I was ya’ll, I’d say none of ya’ll wear a mask. What are they gonna do? They’re still going to have school.”
Good, a Republican representing Virginia’s 5th Congressional District in the U.S. House of Representatives, spoke to a Rappahannock County High School government class of about 20 students on Thursday after Tim Stockdale, the class’ teacher, invited him to speak.

The Virginia Department of Public Health is mandating that all students, teachers, staff and visitors in K-12 schools wear masks indoors, regardless of vaccination status. The event on Thursday was originally supposed to take place in the high school auditorium, but after Good refused to wear a mask, administrators moved it outdoors to the football stadium.

Right-wing House Republicans are fueling various longshot efforts to dislodge President Joe Biden and other officials in his administration over the chaotic U.S. withdrawal from Afghanistan, but they’re hitting a snag: reluctance from their own leadership.

Asked during a press event on Tuesday about calls from dozens of Republicans for Biden and other officials to resign or be impeached, House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy called for “accountability” but stopped short of specifics, even as some lawmakers standing behind him nodded when their calls for resignation were referenced.

McCarthy’s reluctance to endorse concrete recriminations puts him at odds with the Freedom Caucus, a group of around 40 right-wing House Republicans that held a dueling press conference on Tuesday touting various efforts to push for ousters.

Rep. Bob Good (R-Va.) noted the leverage the Freedom Caucus holds over McCarthy, that he will likely need their support to get the speaker’s gavel if the GOP retakes the House, telling Forbes, “Anyone who wants to be speaker is auditioning for the job now.”
