They are saying life comes at you quick, and that’s one thing Paul Davis discovered over the previous yr. Now there’s an article in Enterprise Insider designed to garner sympathy for Paul Davis for experiencing the results of his personal actions.

Chances are you’ll bear in mind Paul Davis. He’s the *ahem* former affiliate normal counsel who attended the January sixth tried coup and broadcast his participation on social media. He rapidly discovered himself out of a job. He then filed a lawsuit in opposition to… just about everybody and their mom to overturn the 2020 election whereas citing Hobbit Legislation. As a result of Gondor has no king, or one thing? Then he obtained fired for a second time. However as a result of lack of proof and funds is an actual bitch, the case obtained dismissed. Good instances!

Anyway, again to the hassle to rehabilitate Davis.

Davis talks about dropping his job and having to promote his home on account of the fallout from the revolt. He informed Insider that he misplaced all the pieces due to his participation within the try to overturn the outcomes of a free and honest election:

Two weeks after the Capitol riot, Davis mentioned his fiancée left him and his buddies lower ties with him, too.

“All the things that I’d labored arduous for 10 years evaporated in a single day,” he mentioned.

“I simply didn’t need to go on,” he added, saying he felt remoted and alone. “I imply, I wished to die. I actually did. I used to be in a lot emotional ache. I used to be so lonely. I didn’t know tips on how to even transfer ahead with my life.

In fact, nobody needs to make gentle of suicidal ideations. And my sympathies exit to the households of Capitol Police Officers Jeffrey Smith and Howard S. Liebengood who died by suicide after the violence of January sixth. However that doesn’t imply there can’t or shouldn’t be actual penalties for the revolt.

In his interview with Insider, Davis insists that he didn’t do something flawed:

Davis, who posted a video about his participation on Instagram, mentioned he was “terrified” when he heard concerning the FBI crackdowns in opposition to those that had participated within the riot.

“In my thoughts, I didn’t do something flawed,” he informed Insider. “I didn’t cross any boundaries. I didn’t assault anyone, however I do know that doesn’t matter quite a lot of instances.”

Does he suppose assault is the one legislation concerned right here? Additionally, it ought to be famous that, regardless of his very public participation within the riot and the extremely public profile he’s courted with the off-the-wall lawsuits, he has not but been charged with any crimes in reference to January sixth.

Certainly, he’s used that notoriety to construct himself a brand new profession:

Davis beforehand informed The New York Instances he earned a “badge of honor” amongst conservatives for his presence in the course of the riot. A couple of month after the riot, he began a legislation agency, which focuses on employment legislation and represents purchasers who don’t need to get vaccinated in opposition to the coronavirus, amongst others. The agency obtained Davis “again on observe” and helped him to maneuver ahead, he mentioned.

And, yup,  he’s discovered nothing:

“I imply, I want to not reside with that worry behind my thoughts, ‘Is the FBI coming for me?’” Davis mentioned. “I don’t remorse going as a result of I simply really feel prefer it was actually a part of God’s plan for my life.”

Miss me with this try at seeing the true individual behind the headlines — he’s precisely who I believed he was.
