Paul Anthony Gosar (GOH-sarr; born November 22, 1958) is a far-right American politician and former dentist who has served as the U.S. Representative for Arizona's 4th congressional district since 2013. A Republican, he was elected in 2010 to represent the neighboring 1st congressional district until redistricting. He is known for his espousal of far right conspiracy theories and ties to white nationalist groups, such as the Groypers.Gosar has opposed the Affordable Care Act, abortion, most gun control laws, federal protection for endangered species, illegal immigration and legalizing marijuana. The Arizona Republic has called Gosar "Arizona's most controversial member of Congress". He has been a strong ally of President Donald Trump. Six of his nine siblings endorsed his opponent in congressional races. He boycotted Pope Francis' visit to the U.S. over the issue of climate change. Gosar accused certain members of the Department of Justice and the FBI of treason. Gosar was one of the 139 representatives who voted to overturn the results of the 2020 U.S. presidential election in Congress on January 7, 2021, the day after the U.S. Capitol was attacked by Trump supporters. Gosar later attended the America First Political Action Conference, a white nationalist conference whose organizer, Nick Fuentes, spoke approvingly of the Capitol attack.
