GRAVEL IN THE GRAVE
US politician and youth sensation Mike Gravel has died aged 91. The two time Senator for Alaska (1968-81) was a little known Democratic figure outside the US until he ran for the Democratic nomination for President twice in 2008 and 2020. As Senator, his greatest achievement was working with Daniel Ellsberg to release The Pentagon Papers. Outside of office, he launched The Gravel Institute in 2019, which will continue to promote left wing ideas in America after his death. He was a unique pick for Dying Donkeys.
