BREAKING: Rep. Elijah Cummings Dead at 68

by Paul Goldberg

Elijah Cummings has died at the age of 68.

His friends and co-workers took to Twitter to pay their respects.

Fox News reports Rep. Elijah Cummings, the powerful House Democrat who represented Baltimore for more than two decades and was a vocal critic of President Trump, died early Thursday after battling health problems, his office said in a statement.

Cummings, who was 68, died at Gilchrist Hospice Care, a Johns Hopkins affiliate. As chairman of the House Oversight and Reform Committee, he was one of the most powerful Democrats in Washington, and played a key role in the House Democrats’ ongoing efforts to impeach Trump.

His office said in a brief statement that he died “due to complications concerning longstanding health challenges.” Cummings had been in ill health the past few years, navigating the Capitol in a motorized cart and using a walker.

“He worked until his last breath because he believed our democracy was the highest and best expression of our collective humanity,” his wife, Maya Rockeymoore Cummings, said Thursday.

Poor old Elijah, he never got his kiss
Poor old Elijah, we all know he’ll not missed
Is it any wonder, that now he’s stone cold dead?
Elijah, that poor old Leftist wooden head.

Actually it’s really sad because he could have done so much for our nation if he had not been such a racist.

Yes, sadly black people can, and frequently are, just as racist as any other ethnicity. Sharpton, Jackson, and the list goes on.
