GOP Rep. Paul Gosar’s Siblings Want Him Removed From Congress
Paul Gosar was first elected to the House in 2010. He has been an embarrassment from his very first day. From Twitter fights with Chelsea Clinton to reportedly having a hand in the Capitol insurrection, Gosar has consistently disgraced his office.
The Arizona Republican is, perhaps, best remembered for his siblings filming a campaign ad urging people to vote against him. And now, Gosar’s siblings are back again. This time they are asking for their brother to be removed from office.
The siblings are asking Democrat Raúl Grijalva (AZ) for his help in getting their their brother removed. They said in a statement to the Arizona Republic, “We know him to be an extremist and we took that very seriously. I believe that my brother has been a constant perpetrator of misinformation. … I’ve been incredulous at the lack of accountability thus far. I would think Wednesday would be certainly a line.”
Just a reminder that Paul Gosar’s own family warned he was a wackadoo and all around lousy person, and probably more people should have listened.

The statement continued, “When you talk about what happened the other day, you’re talking about treason. You’re talking about overthrowing the government. That’s what this is. If that doesn’t rise to the level of expulsion, what does?”
Grijalva also commented on the issue, saying:
“I am first and foremost focused on removing the President from office as soon as possible. But we must not overlook the role that some Members of Congress played in promoting the baseless conspiracy theories that led to Wednesday’s siege of the Capitol. It’s no secret that some threw gasoline on an already-raging fire. If a Member of Congress willingly violated their oath of office and tacitly encouraged a mob to overturn the results of democratic elections, their actions should be investigated and they should face consequences. If that includes expulsion, so be it.”
