A group of House Democrats said Wednesday they plan to introduce a motion censuring Rep. Paul Gosar, R-Ariz., for posting an edited, animated video depicting him killing Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., and attacking President Joe Biden.
Rep. Jackie Speier, co-chair of the Democratic Women’s Caucus, and nine other lawmakers issued a joint statement announcing their plans to file the measure on Friday.
