    Elijah Cummings Dead at 68

    https://www.cbsnews.com/news/elijah-...ay-2019-10-17/

    Sad news, one of the few Representatives that fought for civil rights, and freedoms for this country.

    Doesn't say what he died to, but he died to complications from longstanding health challenges.

    If he should be remembered by anything, it's his legendary closing speech at the Cohen hearing. A great man has passed away.

    This was the last thing I expected to wake up to this morning. Here's hoping a certain bunch doesn't turn this into a shitshow and the country as a whole can honor and remember a great man that passed far too soon.

    Unexpected news. I always liked to hear his takes whether I agreed or not. A great leader, respected voice, and true civil steward of the United States. Rest in peace.

    "Why is so much money sent to the Elijah Cummings district when it is considered the worst run and most dangerous anywhere in the United States. No human being would want to live there. Where is all this money going? How much is stolen? Investigate this corrupt mess immediately!" - The Real President Trump

    Its too bad he died but at least he died with his foot on a criminal's neck.

    Considering what he wrote about McCain...maybe we should wait a few days to see how he really feels.

    Agreed, this was really moving.

    Carolyn Maloney is assuming "acting chairwoman" for the committee.
    hmm...She wants it. So...she knows she has to fill Elijah's shoes.

    Yeah well at least you I'm assuming would have enough sense not to publish the wrong photo on a national news feed. LOL

    I'm pretty sure he accomplished more than speak at a hearing of a shitty lawyer.. lol anyone can sit there and say stuff that sounds good during a heated political hearing. But oh my god.. John Lewis literally looks exactly the same but older.
