Via TTN:

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.”

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.

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.

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.

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,

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.

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%.
