Paul Gosar was elected by the citizens of Arizona to provide leadership

And ends up making statements supporting right wing conspiracy theories and excusing racist hatred.

But Rep. Paul A. Gosar (R-Ariz.) still seems swayed by the “false flag” theory of the white supremacist violence.

In an interview with Vice News that aired Thursday night, Gosar suggested that the rally was “created by the left” and carried out by an “Obama sympathizer.”

The congressman also brought up a thoroughly refuted claim that Soros, a Hungarian-born Jew who survived Nazi occupation during World War II, had collaborated with the Third Reich, prompting a strongly worded condemnation from a Soros spokeswoman.

Large contingent of these low information types here in Nevada. One only has to look for the tell tale knuckle dragger skid marks on the ground.

Hiding behind Scalise.. Why didn't the reporter ask about Gabby Giffords? That happened right in his state. This guy is a coward, a liar, and a general dirtbag.

And I don't know if he is the worst AZ congressperson (Trent Franks you going to top this?). But I'm going to work for whoever the Dems nominate even though they don't have much of a chance and for Sinema for Senator, who does have a chance.

Can Dems is your district get more Hispanics registered? If I remember correctly from visits there, the place seems thin on Black people.
