Not my brother's keeper: six siblings speak out against Republican candidate

  • Six of Rep. Paul Gosar's 10 siblings appeared in attack ads supporting his opponent

That's how ABC News describes the latest spots from David Brill, a Democrat running against GOP incumbent Paul Gosar to represent Arizona's 4th Congressional District.

He promoted the conspiracy theory that the white supremacists' rally in Charlottesville, Virginia, past year was a plot by the left financed by Democratic megadonor George Soros, who Gosar said "turned in his own people to the Nazis".

Following Mr Gosar's statements seven of his siblings signed an open letter to a local Arizona newspaper, The Kingman Daily Miner, saying: "It is extremely upsetting to have to call you out on this, Paul, but you've forced our hand with your deceit and anti-Semitic dog whistle".

"We gotta stand up for our good name", brother David says in the ad. "This is not who we are", David Gosar says. "It's appalling. It's disgraceful", David Gosar said. Grace begins the ad by telling the camera, "Paul Gosar the congressman isn't doing anything to support rural America".

"I think my brother has traded a lot of the values we had at our kitchen table", said one of the six Gosar siblings who appear in the various ads.

"My siblings who chose to film ads against me are all liberal Democrats who hate President Trump".

"These disgruntled Hillary (Clinton) supporters are related by blood to me but like leftists everywhere, they put political ideology before family", he wrote on Twitter.


"Stalin would be proud", he added.

In another tweet, he complained: "We all have insane aunts and relatives etc and my family is no different", before adding: "To the six angry Democrat Gosars-see you at Mom and Dad's house!"

Bernadette Gosar, the siblings' 85-year-old mother, told The New York Times she was "shocked" and "crushed" when she heard about the campaign videos made by the Gosar children for Brill, who she said "doesn't have a chance" to beat her son.

"It's intervention time", Tim Gosar says in the ad, endorsing Brill.

Jennifer Gosar talks about her brother Paul in an advertisement for his opponent David Brill. Brother Pete, who ran for governor of Wyoming in 2014 as a Democrat, does not appear in the ads. Three of the siblings have donated to the Democratic candidate's campaign, Brill said.

If there is a bright side for Mr Gosar, it's that he is one of 10 siblings. David Gosar told the Arizona Republic, "If (Paul Gosar) had any guts or decency, he would apologize to George Soros on Vice News". Tim Gosar says, "It's intervention time and intervention time that you go to vote Paul out". Gosar was labeled a "disgrace" for supporting Robinson by Arizona Democrat Athena Salman.
