Republican Congressman Paul Gosar Censured Over Anime Video


On Wednesday afternoon, the House voted 223-207 on a resolution to censure Arizona Congressman Paul Gosar (R) after he tweeted out an anime video in which he is apparently depicted killing New York Democrat Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.

The vote was generally along party lines, with Wyoming Representative Liz Cheney (R) and Illinois Representative Adam Kinzinger (R) voting with the Democrats in favor of the resolution to censure the congressman for the video, which also featured Gosar “swing swords at President Biden” according to The Hill.

Although Gosar did not say that he was sorry for posting the video, he did remove the video from his accounts. He also argued that the video was not meant to promote violence.
