Six siblings of a Republican congressman from Arizona seeking re-election in November's midterms have publicly endorsed his Democratic opponent - all but ensuring an awkward Thanksgiving family dinner this year.
It begins with a woman "Grace, rural physician", saying, "Paul Gosar the congressman isn't doing anything to support rural America".
In interviews with "The Republic", several of his siblings acknowledged they were no longer close to their brother because of the intensity of their disagreement with his publicly stated views. They said he was not fighting to strengthen Social Security retirement, nor to improve access to health care in his rural district. "I bet he'd be researching what is the most insightful water policy to help the environment in Arizona sustain itself and be successful".
"I hope they find peace in their hearts and let go all the hate", Gosar said.
Attack ads are nothing new in the world of politics, but one campaign video targeting an Arizona congressman just hit a new level of "whoa".
His House seat is not hotly contested; he won by 40 points in the last election.
'None of this is pleasant for any of us, ' says brother David Gosar, a lawyer, noting that 'We gotta stand up for our good name. Brill's campaign manager, Todd Landfried, told the media outlet a few of Gosar's siblings made campaign contributions to the Democratic candidate soon after.
Gosar is known for his extreme right-wing views, including the infamous birther conspiracy.

Bernadette Gosar, 85, told The Times that she had been unaware of her children's appearance in the ads until reporters described them to her.
In Dr. David Brill's latest round of campaign ads, Gosar's own blood - Tim, Jennifer, Gaston, Joan, Grace and David - voiced their concerns regarding the incumbent.
"There's no dispute about our opposition to him", Gosar said. "He's done a hell of a job for Arizona, and they love him".
"Stalin would be proud", he added. "Those aren't our family values or the values of the small Wyoming town we grew up in".
Gosar is a close ally of the Trump administration who has cheered on the crusade against top Justice Department and Federal Bureau of Investigation officials. "This is about our family", Jennifer Gosar says.
The website FiveThirtyEight lists Gosar's district as strongly leaning Republican, and gives the Congressman a greater than 99.9 percent chance of being re-elected.
Horrified, seven of his siblings signed an open letter to the Kingman Daily Miner, stating: "It is extremely upsetting to have to call you out on this, Paul, but you've forced our hand with your deceit and anti-Semitic dog whistle".
