Appearing on MSNBC's "The Last Word" late Monday night, the sister of controversial Rep. Paul Gosar (R-AZ) hammered her brother for posting a video to his Twitter account that encouraged violence against Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY).
With Twitter flagging the video as well as one that could be interpreted as a threat against President Joe Biden, but not removing them, Jennifer Gosar called her brother "despicable" and suggested the Republican Party needs to do something about him before someone gets hurt.
Speaking with host Lawrence O'Donnell, who called Gosar's actions "deeply perverted homicidal fantasies," and then asked, "What is wrong with him, and is it getting worse?" She replied, "Yes it is getting worse because he is not being held accountable in any way, shape or form."
"He's not been censured, he's not been expelled, and he has not had his seat forfeited by any of the leadership," she continued. "And I don't mean to specify Minority Leader [Kevin] McCarthy and [Mitch] McConnell. I do mean Speaker [Nancy] Pelosi, I do mean Senate Leader Chuck Schumer, I do mean Attorney General Merrick Garland. I mean, where are these people?"
"Does he need to act on his sociopathic fantasy for Rep. Ocasio-Cortez? I am very concerned for [her] and other members, and this absolutely unacceptable" she continued. "I do not understand it and I am livid, Lawrence."
"You would think those very members alongside him would hold him accountable, but no," she exclaimed. "They leave it for family members to come forward in the public on a show like yours, and thank you for letting me speak out here. This is my first time on your show but I appreciate any opportunity to put a spotlight on this awful man."
"I mean honestly, is there one policy, is there one insight that Paul has brought to his district, to Arizona, to the United States of America?' She asked.
