Elijah Cummings, chair of Oversight Committee investigating Trump as part of the impeachment inquiry who had a spat with president over claims Baltimore was 'rat-infested', dies aged 68
[MAIL] Elijah E Cummings, a senior Democrat who was a key player in the Trump impeachment inquiry, has died aged 68.

Cummings, who chaired the House Oversight and Reform Committee, passed away at Baltimore's John Hopkins Hospital at 2.45am on Thursday, his office said.

The Maryland representative, who has been in office since 1996, died of 'complications concerning longstanding health challenges'.

His death comes two years after he had surgery to repair his aortic valve, and a month after he was admitted to hospital for further treatment.

#14  "...and then her lips fell off." Lips? Hell, I would have expected her face to melt off like in Indiana Jones Raiders of the Lost Arc.

#13  'Congressman Cummings was an honorable man who proudly served his district and the nation with dignity, integrity, compassion and humility,' Rockeymoore, the 48-year-old chairwoman of the Maryland Democratic Party, said.
...And then her lips fell off. Well, he was certainly "proud" that he could spend a long career serving gouging his constituents.

How long before this is somehow tied to Trump? Does his evil genius know no bounds? [snicker]

#3  Maybe I'm mean or something, but when these midget "Titans" of the Slavery party die, I'm always reminded of that scene in Space:Above and Beyond where McQueen says "Well, I don't think our maker wants to hear from me right now. Because he know I'm going to go out in this plane and I'm going to remove one of His creations from His universe. And when I get back, I'm going to drink a bottle of scotch as if it was Chiggy Von Richtofen's blood and celebrate his death."

#2  Yes, it's a duplicate post. A bit of over heralding, what could be the harm.... as I always say.
