No congressional Republicans who voted against certifying the presidential election were more prolific on social media in casting doubt on the results and reacting to the deadly Capitol riot than those from Arizona, according to a new report compiled by a House Democrat.
Three of Arizona’s four House Republicans — Reps. Andy Biggs, Paul Gosar and Debbie Lesko — feature prominently in the Friday report from Rep. Zoe Lofgren, D-Calif., likely to deepen the partisan divisions on Capitol Hill.
The 1,900-page report tries to document relevant examples of troubling social media posts by those who voted against certifying the election that Lofgren considered potentially notable in weighing whether sanctions, including expulsion, may be justified.
The Arizona section runs 257 pages, the longest of any state’s. Texas, with 229 pages of posts, was second.
At 177 pages, the portion listing Gosar’s posts appeared to be the longest of any member Lofgren’s report cited.
Lofgren chairs the House Administration Committee. Lofgren declined to comment beyond the report, her office said.
