Bloomberg Quicktake: Now published this video item, entitled “House Censures Republican for Video Depicting Attack on Ocasio-Cortez” – below is their description.
The U.S. House voted Wednesday to censure Arizona Republican Paul Gosar and revoke his committee assignments for tweeting an altered animation that depicted him striking Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez with a sword and attacking President Joe Biden.
The censure, a formal rebuke, is the first such action against a House member in more than a decade. With the 223-207 vote, Gosar also will be removed from his seats on the Natural Resource Committee and the Oversight Committee, on which Ocasio-Cortez also serves.
After the vote, Gosar was forced to stand in the well of the House chamber while Speaker Nancy Pelosi read the resolution aloud. Several Republicans, including Marjorie Taylor Greene of Georgia, stood behind him.
