Sign the petition: Hold Paul Gosar and Marjorie Taylor Greene accountable for speaking at AFPAC.

GOP congress members Paul Gosar and Marjorie Taylor Greene presented as speakers at the annual AFPAC conference, a white nationalist and far-right event. Greene's speech came moments after the host Nick Fuentes moved the crowd to chant “Putin” and urged them to give a round of applause for Russia. Fuentes also showed appreciation for Putin and noted that comparing him to Adolf Hitler should be a compliment.

During her remarks at AFPAC, Greene noted that she was "tragically heartbroken" to have to be a member of this Congress and stated that "everything this Congress does—is evil."

Senate GOP leader Mitch McConnel condemned Gosar and Greene’s involvement at AFPAC, stating “there’s no place in the Republican Party for white supremacists or anti-Semitism.” House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy followed, calling it “appalling and wrong” for them to have attended.  

Through an indirect admission of fault, Greene attempted to downplay her involvement at the event, claiming she did not know the organizers of the event or their views. Despite this overwhelmingly clear acknowledgment of GOP wrongdoing, Congress has yet to officially penalize or actively hold either Gosar or Greene accountable for their involvement at AFPAC or their previous ties to white supremacists and anti-Semitism.  

McCarthy has noted his intention of speaking with both of them about their attendance at the event. Upholding white supremacy and anti-Semitism requires more than just verbal condemnation. In 2019, the GOP stripped Republican Rep. Steve King of committee assignments after he appeared to lament if the term “white supremacist” should be considered offensive.

Both Gosar and Greene must actively be held accountable for their roles in upholding white supremacy and anti-Semitism, and for the dangerous posture of supporting Putin’s deadly agenda. Congress must work to both censure the duo and prevent them from attaining new committee assignments in the next Congress.
