Former Michigan Congressman Paul Mitchell passed away over the weekend after a battle with cancer. Mitchell’s wife released a statement on his passing, he was 64.
According to reports from The Hill:
“I am immensely proud of him and never more so than when he was the lone voice in a sea of politicians who cared more about power than the true definition of the office. When he remained the lone voice and ignored the threats from those claiming to be his friends,” his wife wrote. “Paul stood up for what matters most, it had nothing to do with political ideology and everything to do with keeping our humanity. For everyone.”
The former representative shocked colleagues and constituents last year when he announced he was leaving the Republican Party after former President Trump refused to accept the results of the 2020 presidential election over claims of widespread voter fraud.
Mitchell, who served on the leadership team of House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.), did not seek a third term in the House in 2020, pointing to the partisan bickering and gridlock in Washington.
“It is unacceptable for political candidates to treat our election system as though we are a third-world nation and incite distrust of something so basic as the sanctity of our vote,” Mitchell said in his statement announcing he was defecting from the GOP. “Further, it is unacceptable for the president to attack the Supreme Court of the United States because its judges, both liberal and conservative, did not rule with his side or that ‘the Court failed him.’
“It was our Founding Fathers’ objective to insulate the Supreme Court from such blatant political motivations.”
What a shame that Paul Mitchell was 100% wrong.
Exactly, the anti-Trumpers are nothing but Rinos!
Another political hack gone!
Lots of rinos still in the republican party. They need to officially switch their party and join the dim bulb party.
the proof is amassing by leaps and bounds that china and nato countries were involved in the fraud of the election. mitchell may find out in the after life what we know now
My sentiments exactly
one less political for life, the big club in d.c. is loosing members, KEEP IT UP…
No doubt he will be given a Viking funeral and many are lining up to send the flaming arrow towards the rowboat carrying his body and 100 gallons of gasoline!
No fun giving him a viking funeral now. Would have great fun if we could have given him one while he was alive.
Wow, cancer isn’t a fun experience either, so it was a lose/lose for this guy.
Another one bites the dust
The Trump curse.
All of these demonic Luciferian RINO’s will die soon and receive eternal damnation by the hand of God!
He knows now what. Fool he was
I’m almost speechless…
The only things that come to mind is:
did he do anything of value beyond pushing the communist manifesto in congress?
He made his family rich by selling out the American people like 90% of the Congress, Senate, and current president are also doing.
Rest Paul…you’re wrong on turning your back on 45🇺🇸🙏🏼
Why leave life a loser——
80 million Americans agree with you—- Rhinos have no county on earth 🌍
Too bad he died. However anyone that comes against auditing out elections that there is no evidence of fraud, but denies Americans that basic right is unacceptable and inappropriate and not worthy to be a public servant. Obviously he had a lot to lose if fraud were exposed and perhaps he gained office through such illegitimate means. His opposition to audits speaks volumes. A taxpayer who refuses to be audited confirms he has been cheating on his tax liability, an honest man wants to be checked to prove he is honest and has integrity, or not.
I should have waited and not responded to your article. I find it offensive that a readers comments must be approved before sharing. I will cancel your mailings and not respond with a comment again. This practice is not acceptable. This is censorship, and I do not approve. Cancel my mailings.
Too bad he didn’t really know what was happening. He could’ve helped but decided he was more important. Rest his soul.
Mitchell sounds so naive. At a time when Biden is selling out US interests to let China walk into a more powerful position in Afghanistan than the US will have, Trump’s distrust of Biden and Co. seems quite prudent.
We were warned by former Secretary of Defense, Robert Gates, “Joe Biden has been wrong on every decision on foreign policy for 47 years.” And continuing currently. His press secretary is a chronic liar, she would have to be to keep up with that bull shop.
It’s people like Mitchell that we ended up with corrupt Joe
Problems do not go away because we ignore them. With all due respect to the people who loved him, Paul Mitchell ran away from a problem rather than confronting it and dealing with it. The 2020 election obviously had severe irregularities, and they must be investigated and corrected. Confidence is not improved by cowardice. America needs brave people to confront election irregularities and correct the systemic weaknesses that allowed them.
That’s the only thing he has ever done for our country. The best kind of RINOS are dead ones. With luck, Romney, Cheney, Collins, Murkowski, Sasse, Toomey, and Burr WILL FOLLOW VERY SHORTLY
Now that’s a hopeful plan—-
I am sorry he is gone before he could realize that he was just another swamp monster. In pace requiescat.
after that long sanctimonious quote the wife’s real thought comes out in the last few words. She is going to “save our humanity for everybody”
Proverbs 24:17 Rejoice not when thine enemy falleth, and let not thine heart be glad when he stumbleth:”
We need to be careful not to dishonor our enemies as we fall prey to their ways. It is easy to rejoice when bad things happen to our enemies but they are leaving loved ones behind, and that is sad. Let God get the revenge not us.
Foolish man. PRESIDENT Trump
is correct saying the election was stolen! To bad he won’t live to see the truth.👎🏼
As Biden would say Come on man—— you have to be half asleep 😴 or half dead 💀 not to know this election was stolen
Another Democratic liar and pos. Glad he is gone.
RIP but you were on the wrong side!!
Have a nice trip to the other side. Like all Congress persons, he was able to enrich himself and his family while in power. Sorry to see him die so young. President Trump had the election stolen from him. Look what we got instead of the real President. Open borders, higher gas prices, higher food prices, a defeat in Asia etc. Are we sorry the Dems. Stole the election?
I don’t want to speak I’ll of the bereaved, but Mrs Mitchell is not the brightest cookie out of the cutter. I’m glad she loved her husband but who can really believe that nonsense?
Concerning Mitchell’s words about the election and the Supreme Court. Anyone who was paying attention knew the election had been stolen the morning of November 4. Trump had a responsibility to stand up for what was right. The Supreme Court – insulated from remarks by the President – like they were when Obama made a public speech threatening the court if they didn’t pass Obamacare? Strange that Roberts came back from recess and sold Americans out. He had been arguing wisely before the Court took a break. He knew it wasn’t constitutional. Justice will be served when the truth is exposed undeniably,
To bad so sad
What did he accomplish nothing is he proud of the slimy racist communist socialist democrats
One more down, a lot more of them to go.
He didn’t amount to a hill of piss
Half a hilk
The only good ANTI TRUMPERS ARE DEAD ONES. NOT ENOUGH OF THEM. WE NEED MORE.
Any death is sad. Too bad he wasn’t true to the constituency that elected him.
i need to take a leak, wheres he buried at
Why did this old coot not think that the communist party would steal an election so they could shove their destructive agenda down the throats of the American people. There was no way in hell the beady eyed, brain dead, criminal creep called Joe Biden would actually win the majority of votes for the nation’s highest office. I am from the suburbs of Detroit and only through election fraud could Biden win that many votes. Yes, I believe he got 95% of the votes in Wayne County but the total number of all votes cast . . . . was probably twice what it really was. Many registered voters stayed home but the total of votes cast did not reveal that. Michigan must clean up the states voting rules and regulations to prevent vote fraud.
He never was a Republican but he was a RINO.
GOOD RIDDANCE RHINO
He looks 84. Must be from being 100% wrong.
Good riddance to the RHINO, HE JUST LINED HIS POCKETS AND WENT ALONG WITH THE DEMOCRATS. THE SOONER WE GET RID OF ALL THE RHINOS IN THE SENATE AND CONGRESS THE BETTER. 90% OF THE Republicans are just RHINOS padding their pockets with bribes funneled through family and friends just like the Democrats. That is why all bickering with Democrats is just for show. Neither side cares about us, just making themselves rich selling out their country to our enemies, big Tech, and Multinational Corporations whose interest do no coincide with the interests of the American People. Time to take the trash out. Hang the Congressmen, Senators, everyone in the executive branch, the CEOs, and Tech Billionares. Just for starters, then work on cleaning out the CIA, FBI, NSA, and the joint CHIEFS OF STAFF. Then disban the useless agencies, like the Department of Education (every state has their own and that is where it belongs, that saves billions right there), get rid of get rid of the entire diplomatic core, they think they run policy, not the President. They are a bunch of arrogant snobs, appoint new people to replace everyone of them and let the new guys and gals know that the president makes policy they just carry it out period. There are many more departments that can be done away with. That includes eliminating the FBI, THEY HAVE BECOME A POLITICAL ORGANIZATION INSTEAD OF A NEUTRAL LAW ENFORCEMENT ORGANIZATION. FIRE THEM ALL AND HIRE ALL NEW PEOPLE, BUT ONLY HIRE REPLACEMENTS FOR 1/3 OF THE POSITIONS. CUT EVERY GOVERNMENT DEPARTMENT BY 40%. Replace all directors, managers, and supervisors in the CIA and NSA and cut their personal by 60%.
One less former RINO…so what❓The Swamp “breeds” this kind, it’s an infestation.
He won’t be missed traitors usually aren’t —-it was voter fraud
Good ridence to another DC swamp rat. Just another theif that was selling out Anerica for self profit.
Correction! When 26 million fake Chinese ballots on Bamboo paper with no watermark (the official ballots), in my mind that is ELECTION FRAUD. Sorry for his death, may be at peace, but dont blame President Trump when he and the Military were monitoring this sting operation by China, Italy , Venezuela, Germany, UK, Switzerland and Canada!
Omar is anti-American and should be
Kicked out of her position…she does nothing for Ametican citizens
Good riddance bad rubbish!
So he joins the democrat party. What a fool. Hillary still contests the 2016 election as being stolen.
Schumer screaming at the supreme court and threatening them with political violence. This HR was also a hypocrite.
The man was totally incorrect! Look what has become of America today in just 8 months! We have got to get with it and get regime out of the WH.
