WASHINGTON – Today, Rep. Raúl M. Grijlava (AZ-03) voted to censure Arizona GOP Rep. Paul Gosar for posting a video threatening violence to Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (NY- 14) and President Joe Biden.
“Threatening and condoning explicit and implicit violence toward anyone, let alone a Member of Congress and the President of the United States, is unacceptable in a civil society. This behavior is a concerning pattern that fits neatly into what led up to and the aftermath of January 6. Actions have consequences and today’s vote to censure and strip committee assignments are the result of those actions. Anyone who would threaten another individual with violence is unfit to serve in Congress.”
