Paul Gosar was born in 1958 and is currently serving as the U.S. Representative for Arizona’s 4th Congressional District.

Gosar was first elected in the U.S. House of Representatives in 2010, when he successfully ran to represent Arizon’s 1st Congressional District. In 2012, following redistricting, he announced that he would run in the newly created 4th District and has been reelected since. In November 2021, Gosar was censured by the U.S. House of Representatives and stripped of committee assignments for posting an animated video that depicted him killing Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY).

U.S. Representative Gosar has sparked controversy for embracing conspiracy theories and associating himself with antisemites, white supremacists, and neo-Nazis.

In February 2021, Rep. Gosar addressed the America First Political Action Conference (AFPAC). The event was organized by Nicholas Fuentes, a renowned white supremacist and Holocaust denier who rose to prominence after attending the deadly Unite the Right rally in Charlottesville in 2017. In 2022, Rep. Gosar delivered a video address at AFPAC’s event in Orlando.

Rep. Gosar has engaged with local far-right Arizona figures, including appearing in photos with Greyson Arnold, who has expressed admiration for Nazi Germany. In 2021, Gosar was part of a trip to the border that included Arnold, who has shared extremist posts stating that “Jewish led colored hordes” are fighting the “White Christian West.”

Since 2017, Rep. Gosar has embraced conspiracy theories, including one stating that the violence in Charlottesville during the white supremacist Unite the Right rally was a “false flag” operation “created by the left.”
