US House votes to censure Gosar, remove him from committees, for posting video they didn’t like

Source: CNN

“The House of Representatives voted Wednesday to approve a resolution that censures Rep. Paul Gosar and strips him of his two committee assignments, the first time a sitting House member has been censured in more than 10 years. The action led by House Democrats represents a major rebuke to the Arizona Republican for posting a photoshopped anime video to social media showing him appearing to kill Democratic Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and attacking President Joe Biden. The final vote was 223 to 207. Republicans Adam Kinzinger of Illinois and Liz Cheney of Wyoming voted with all the Democrats for the censure resolution.” [editor’s note: They’ll censure one among themselves for anime videos of fictional killings, but not themselves for funding and approving real killings day in and day out for decades – TLK] (11/17/21)
