Ethics complaint filed against Biggs, Cawthorn and Gosar over Capitol riot

The Hill
By Jordan Williams - 01/22/21 03:48 PM EST

A government watchdog group is asking the House Office of Congressional Ethics to investigate GOP Reps. Andy Biggs (Ariz.), Madison Cawthorn (N.C.) and Paul Gosar (Ariz.) over the Jan. 6 riot at the U.S. Capitol.

The complaint from the liberal watchdog group Campaign for Accountability accuses the House Republicans of inciting the riot as part of “a seditious conspiracy to use force to prevent Congress from carrying out its constitutional and statutory duties to count the votes of the Electoral College.”

The group is also asking the House ethics office to recommend the congressmen be expelled from the House if it is found that they violated federal law.

The GOP lawmakers were vocal supporters of President Trump's baseless claims of widespread voter fraud, and all voted to uphold objections to Arizona and Pennsylvania’s electors after Congress resumed its count after the riot.

6. Do these idiots realize that if the vote had been voided somehow,

that they would no longer be Representatives? Their elevator doesn't go to the top floor.
