The House on Wednesday voted 223-207 to censure Republican Rep. Paul Gosar following a video he posted on Twitter that features him as an anime character attacking President Joe Biden and Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.
The final vote was 223-207-1, with three non-votes.
The resolution also strips Gosar of his main committee assignments which include House Oversight—which Ocasio-Cortez also serves on—as well as the Natural Resources Committee.
Two House Republicans joined the Democrats in censuring Gosar—Reps. Liz Cheney of Wyoming and Adam Kinzinger of Illinois.
