Expel Gosar from Congress Immediately

Expel Rep. Paul Gosar of Arizona. His threats and support of violence against fellow members of Congress are unconscionable and grounds for expulsion.

Why is this important?

Paul Gosar shared on twitter a video that imagined him as a hero killing an adversary with the face of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and violently battling President Joe Biden.

It would be bad enough if these were the deranged fantasies of a fringe, right-wing lunatic—and would warrant investigation and intervention by law enforcement. But this is by a member of Congress.

And it's not the only time he's been part of violence against Congress. Rep. Gosar has consistently supported the white supremacists whose deadly insurrection took lives and threatened members of Congress—including Rep. Ocasio-Cortez—on January 6 in one of the bloodiest days in the history of U.S. Capitol. And it's been reported since then that he had actively collaborated with the riot's organizers in advance, even promising them blanket presidential pardons for their actions.

Rep. Gosar's violent threats and his support of the insurrection warrant his immediate removal from Congress.


Reasons for signing

  • He is a dangerous man holding elected office and does not belong in our Congress.
  • His antics have no place politics. We need effective leaders and he is not one of them!
  • Pretending to and encouraging followers to kill a member of congress should be a felony with life in prison as the automatic penalty.
