Siblings of U.S. Rep. Paul Gosar endorse his opponent, Gosar responds

Six of Gosar's siblings appeared in a political ad Friday, condemning their brother and endorsing his Democratic opponent Dr. David Brill.

The ad, which has already racked up over 400,000 views on Youtube, features the six individuals, but doesn't drop the bombshell reveal of their relation to the congressman until the end.

Gosar is estranged from a lot of them due to his hard-line positions on such issues as immigration ("it would be hard to see my brother as anything but a racist", Grace Gosar says in another ad), as well as his conspiracy theories, including that the Charlottesville white supremacist rally was organized by "the left" and George Soros (their letter on that here).

"Paul's absolutely not working for his district", says "David, lawyer". That, though, is what has happened to the Arizona Republican Paul Gosar. "And he doesn't have your interests at heart".

In a statement regarding the ad, Dr. Brill said the Gosar siblings have always been on record as critical of their brother Paul, but this is the first time they have endorsed a competing candidate or actively involved themselves in a political campaign.

"None of this is pleasant for any of us", David Gosar said in the advertisement before his other siblings echoed the same thought.

Brill's ads, of which there are at least three, were filmed in Jackson and Laramie, Wyoming.

In an interview with The Washington Post, David Gosar, 57, a lawyer in Jackson in the USA state of Wyoming, said he felt obligated to speak out against his brother because of his views, though he wished it weren't the case. He then branded Democratic Party donor George Soros a Nazi collaborator in an interview with Vice News.

Gosar is known for his extreme right-wing views, including the infamous birther conspiracy.

Every family has their political differences. but this is on another level. He's joined Trump's relentless attacks on the media and once called on Attorney General Jeff Sessions and Capitol Police to arrest any undocumented immigrants who attended this year's State of the Union as guests.

It is not the first time that some of Gosar's nine siblings have banded together to speak out against their brother.

Pete Gosar, who was the seventh signee of the letter, ran for governor of Wyoming as a Democrat in 2014.

Gosar noted that he had won the approval of his mother, who told The New York Times she was "shocked" and "crushed" to learn that her children had participated in a series of campaign videos attacking their brother. The Republican is considered likely to keep the seat he has held since 2011. David Gosar said that their parents, who are in their 80s, are Republicans and support his brother.

He added: "To the six angry Democrat Gosars - see you at Mom and Dad's house!"

In interviews with "The Republic", several of his siblings acknowledged they were no longer close to their brother because of the intensity of their disagreement with his publicly stated views.
