The brothers of Rep. Andy Biggs’ (R-Ariz.) said their sibling is “at least partially to blame” for the deadly riots at the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6.

Biggs’ brothers, William Biggs and Daniel Biggs, wrote in a letter to the editor to The Arizona Republic that he should be removed from office over what they viewed as his role in inciting the riot.

“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.

Aside from Arizona, Pennsylvania was the second state in which members of the House and Senate contested to its election results during the official count by Congress of the Electoral College votes that affirmed President Biden as the winner.

The newspaper noted that Biggs called for a forensic audit of his state’s election systems and once said in an interview that “an utter disaster, and really your immediate remedy is to basically nullify Pennsylvania’s election.”
