Paul Gosar's seat in Congress, released a series of campaign ads on Thursday attacking Gosar's character, morals and politics while urging Arizona residents to vote him out.

"It's intervention time", he said, "when you go to vote, you go to vote...to vote Paul out".

The siblings were alarmed at what they saw as the congressman's increasingly extremist views on immigration, health care and white supremacists, one of them, David Gosar, said Saturday. "This is not who we are". "It's appalling. It's disgraceful", David Gosar said.

"It would be hard to see my brother as anything but a racist", Grace Gosar says in one of the videos, according to the Phoenix New Times.

In one ad titled "A family defends its honor", Gosar's brother David says: "We've got to stand up for our good name, this is not who we are".

"If he actually cared about people in rural Arizona", Jennifer Gosar explains, "I bet he'd be fighting for social security, for better access to healthcare". These disgruntled Hillary supporters [sic] are related by blood to me but like leftists everywhere, they put political ideology before family.

"Stalin would be proud", he added.

He also approvingly shared a New York Times report that quoted his 85-year-old mother Bernadette Gosar saying she believes in "the same philosophy and policies that Paul does", leading the congressman to gloat: "I guess I really am Mom's favorite!"

UCO Bank and IDBI Bank have been identified to route the payment as the two have no exposure to the U.S. financial system. Some sanctions took effect from August 6 while those affecting the oil and banking sectors will start from November 4.

Six of Gosar's ten siblings apparently couldn't take it anymore, and they came together to produce this masterful ad.

David Brill, an Arizona Democrat going after Republican Rep.

Pete Gosar, another sibling who ran unsuccessfully as a candidate for governor of Wyoming in 2014, does not appear in the ad, though he has publicly criticized his brother's views in the past.

Gosar suggested in an interview with Vice News that the rally was "created by the left" and carried out by an "Obama sympathizer". The counties that make up Gosar's district voted heavily for US President Donald Trump.

Representative Gosar has not yet responded to the ad campaign.

"None of us are doing this for publicity".

Brill acknowledged that speaking against their brother was not easy for the Gosar siblings.

The letter went on to say that 'It is extremely upsetting to have to call you out on this, Paul, but you've forced our hand with your deceit and anti-semitic dog whistle. In the Wisconsin race to replace Paul Ryan, the brother of Democrat Randy Bryce endorsed his Republican opponent in an advertisement by an conservative group.
