According to The Hill, Rep. Andy Biggs’ (R-AZ) brothers wrote in a letter to the Arizona Republic that he is “at least partially to blame” for the violent insurrection at the U.S. Capitol earlier this month and argued that Biggs should be removed from office.
William Biggs and Daniel Biggs said their brother has violated his oath of office by fueling the false narrative that the 2020 election was fraudulent.
“By attempting to cause uncertainty in the election’s outcome, Andy is at least partially to blame for the riot at the Capital on January 6,” the brothers wrote. “Political ambition, peer pressure and fealty to [former President Donald] Trump proved to be too strong a drug to resist.
“These are violations of his oath of office and erode the trust of the American electorate. For these reasons we call for the timely removal of Congressman Biggs from office.”
The newspaper noted that Biggs called for a forensic audit of his state’s election systems and once said in an interview that Pennsylvania’s elections were “an utter disaster, and really your immediate remedy is to basically nullify Pennsylvania’s election.”
The Hill said Biggs’ office did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
