John Dingell was the longest-serving member of Congress in U.S. history. He represented his Michigan district for nearly 60 years, from 1955 to 2015. A member of the Democratic party, he supported comprehensive healthcare legislation, supported Civil Rights, and fought against government fraud. Generally a strong advocate for environmental protection, he was also an unwavering supporter of the auto industry and argued against environmental regulations for car makers.

Regarded highly for his legislative abilities, he also had a keen sense of humor. After his retirement from Congress he became active on twitter and amassed a following for his biting critiques of politics and commentary on pop culture.
