Issues

Partying pictures

Mills came under fire for pictures of him partying that were published on the Minneapolis City Pages in November 2013. One of the pictures showed him drinking from a beer bong. Another picture showed him licking the lips of an unidentified woman. The pictures were said to have originated from his wife's Facebook account and were taken down prior to his run for office. Mills released a statement on November 22, 2013. He said, "It's no secret that in the past I've let my hair down to have fun with family and friends. My wife and I have had many lighthearted moments in our lives but right now I am focused on my Congressional campaign and the disastrous effects of our overreaching government and sky high unemployment in the north eastern Minnesota [sic]."[2]

Gun Rights


Mills responds to Rick Nolan's comment regarding the dangers of assault weapons.[3]

Mills is a strong advocate for gun rights, and is well know for a YouTube video from January of 2013 in which he speaks out against Rick Nolan's position on gun control. Nolan, the current representative from Mills' district, wanted to crack down on assault weapons in response to the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting. Mills responded with a video in which he compared the damage done by a shotgun to the damage done by a Huldra AR-15, saying that a shotgun is actually more destructive, and that limiting Second Amendment rights is not the proper solution to prevent school shootings.
