Rep. Gus M. Bilirakis represents Florida’s 12th district in the House. 

Rep. Bilirakis was a signatory of the Texas amicus brief, rationalizing his decision that would’ve disenfranchised millions of voters by stating “many Americans are disturbed by multiple reports of voter irregularities and what some feel are unconstitutional changes to various states’ mail-in voting procedures.”

Rep. Bilirakis did not vote in support of the bipartisan commission proposal to investigate the Jan. 6 insurrection.

He refused to hold Trump accountable for his incitement of the Jan. 6 insurrection, earning him his F grade.
