Former Democrat Senator dead at 91

Former Alaskan Democrat Sen. Mike Gravel passed away on Saturday at the age of 91.

The senator served from 1969 to 1981. His efforts included serving during the authorization of the trans-Alaska oil pipeline and as the state set aside numerous lands for parks and preserves, according to Breitbart News.

Gravel also ran as a Democratic presidential candidate in 2008 that was ultimately won by Barack Obama. He also briefly ran in 2020.

The former senator was also an outspoken critic of the war in Iraq.

He said, “I believe America is doing harm every day our troops remain in Iraq — harm to ourselves and to the prospects for peace in the world,” according to The Associated Press.

CNN reported, “In 1971, Gravel gained nationwide attention after he read portions of the Pentagon Papers, a collection of leaked top-secret information about the Vietnam War, into the Congressional Record in an effort to end the war.

“The documents showed that senior leaders, including several presidents, believed​ the war was unwinnable, and that the government had misled Congress and the public about its progress.”

The loss of Gravel marks another long-term political leaders who voice no longer remains. Gravel’s efforts included both many notable and controversial actions in his efforts to serve Alaska and the nation.

My last paycheck was $2500 for working 12 hours a week online. My sisters friend has been averaging 8k for months now and she works about 30 hours a week. I can’t believe how easy it was once I tried it out. The potential with this is endless.
