U.S. Rep. Paul Gosar (AZ), Advocated Fake Electors to Steal 2020 Election

Beyond his vote not to certify electors on January 6, Rep. Paul Gosar plotted with Trump to overturn the 2020 election and was a ringleader in that plot. In December after the 2020 election, right-wing political activist and organizer Ali Alexander said that he, Gosar, Biggs, and U.S. Representative Mo Brooks were “planning something big”: a “mob” to pressure Congress into rejecting the election results. Then Rep. Gosar then voted to overturn the results of the 2020 election.

Gosar has a long history of collaborating with white nationalists and far right extremists, and several of his own estranged siblings have referred to him as a “traitor to his country” and called for his removal from the House.

He was the keynote speaker at an America First Political Action Conference, organized by white nationalist Nick Fuentes, whom the Department of Justice in a court filing calls a “white supremacist” and who marched in the deadly Charlottesville “Unite the Right” rally.
