Deciding that they can no longer stand by as their brother, Congressperson Paul Gosar (R-Arizona)... exists... six of his nine siblings are starring in campaign ads for his Democratic opponent David Brill.
“It’s intervention time,” Tim Gosar tells the camera in one clip.
“He just doesn’t appear to be well,” David Gosar told the Phoenix New Times.
“It would be difficult to see my brother as anything but a racist,” Grace Gosar reportedly says in an upcoming video.
“Where is his integrity? I don’t know,” says Jennifer Gosar in another.
Paul is willing to strip environmental protections “if benefits his interests or puts a dollar in his pocket from one of his constituents or large mining groups,” Gaston Gosar says in another.
“I think our brother has traded a lot of the values we had at our kitchen table,” says Joan Gosar.
“There isn’t a kooky, crazy, nutty thing that he isn’t a part of,” David Gosar told the Washington Post. “What are we supposed to do?”
Kooky, crazy, nutty things such as: peddling conspiracy theories that liberals orchestrated the “Unite the Right” rally; calling for Washington D.C. police to arrest Dreamers and deport “illegal aliens” (his term) if they tried to attend the State of the Union (yes, he was that guy); and privately believing the Obama birther conspiracy, according to David. Congressperson Gosar declined the Washington Post’s request for comment.
The overarching racism, disregard for healthcare access, environmental protections and financial transparency is evident from a glance at FiveThirtyEight’s Trump scorecard, showing that he voted against a carbon tax, against measures forcing energy companies to reduce waste, against disaster relief funding for Puerto Rico, in favor of rolling back Dodd-Frank regulations and a whole lot more which maybe he’ll finally stop getting to do if he loses this race, but he’s just jumped about fifty points in the least popular person award, which, as a legislator, is a very exclusive distinction! Congratulations to Gosar, but also congratulations to no one because life-sucking ghouls get to vote.
Jezebel has reached out to a representative for Paul Gosar and will update the post if we hear back.
