House of Representatives legislators will vote on Wednesday on a resolution condemning MP Paul Gosar and removing him from the committee because of an animated video he posted online.
The video featured a giant warrior who died in a sword fight on the face of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, a Democrat in New York.
Rep. Ted Deutch, a Florida Democrat, proposed legislation that would remove Arizona Republicans from Mr. Gosar’s seat on the Monitoring Committee and Natural Resources Committee.
Mr. Gosar removed the video after receiving widespread criticism of the clip and a call from Kevin McCarthy, a California-based Republican leader in the House of Representatives.
A motion of censure is the most severe form of punishment in the lower house, and the convicted Member must stand in the well of Parliament as the speaker reads the resolution aloud.
The last legislature to be convicted was the then republic. Charles Rangel, a New York Democrat, in 2010 for several ethical violations.
In February, Democrat in the House of Representatives dismissed Georgian Republican Marjorie Taylor Greene for her committee duties because of insulting social media messages she made before joining Congress. The messages despise several Democrat lawmakers.
The disengagement of the majority from the minority’s assignments was an unprecedented act in Parliament at the time.
