Congressman's six siblings launch TV ad attacking him and endorsing his rival

  • This US Political Attack Ad Ends With The Most Savage Twist You'll Ever See

"These disgruntled Hillary suppporters [sic] are related by blood to me but like leftists everywhere, they put political ideology before family".

I am still shewk from this political ad released by Arizona Democratic Congressional candidate David Brill against his incumbent Republican opponent, Paul Gosar.

That's when six siblings drop a bombshell: "Paul Gosar is my brother, and I wholeheartedly endorse Dr. David Brill for Congress". "Stalin would be proud".

It's only at the end that the ad reveals these surname-less people are actually Gosar's siblings.

He added, "You can't pick your family". In the first ad that surfaced online Friday night, Tim, David, Grace, Joan, Gaston, and Jennifer Gosar each criticized their brother's views on issues like health care and immigration, and endorsed David Brill, their brother's Democratic opponent.

In another video, Grace says: "It would be hard to see my brother as anything but a racist".

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.

"I share the same philosophy and policies that Paul does", she told the New York Times.

It's hard to get six siblings to agree on anything.

"I think my brother has traded a lot of the values we had at our kitchen table", says Joan Gosar, an engineer.

Mourinho confirms Dalot will not feature against Wolves
Newly-promoted Wolves have proven themselves more than up to the challenge of playing Premier League football again. I don't want to say that our improvement has the name of Chris or Victor.

In one of the ads, entitled: "Paul Gosar Is Not Working For You", the siblings are introduced by only their first name and profession as they take turns to lay out the case against him.

Paul Gosar's comments about Soros came in a television interview with Vice News in which he also suggested a 2017 white supremacist rally in Charlottesville, Virginia, might have been a liberal conspiracy.

"There's no dispute about our opposition to him", Gosar said.

Six siblings of Gosar have urged voters to cast their ballots against the Arizona Republican in November 2018 in an unusual political ad sponsored by the rival candidate.

Videographers from Brill's campaign interviewed Gosar's siblings, but Brill said he was not personally involved with the ad, or the siblings' remarks.

Mr Gosar has not yet responded to the ad campaign. The Republican, who won his district with 71% of the vote in 2016, is still considered likely to keep the seat he has held since 2011.

A campaign staffer for Brill spied his tweets, which led to a conversation between David Gosar and the campaign, and then a trip to Wyoming to film the ads with the Gosar siblings earlier this month.

"I will not be deterred from fighting for our conservative values regardless of these attacks", Gosar wrote.

"It's intervention time", said another brother, Tim.
