Maryland Democratic Rep. Elijah Cummings Dies At 68

Rep. Elijah E. Cummings, a Baltimore attorney and civil rights advocate who served in Maryland's legislature before representing the state in the U.S. House, where he took on a lead role in investigating President Trump, has died. He was 68.

Cummings, the head of the powerful House Oversight and Reform Committee, died early Thursday at Johns Hopkins Hospital due to complications from longstanding health challenges, according to The Associated Press.

The 12-term congressman had failed to return from an unspecified medical procedure and missed two legislative roll call votes on Tuesday, the first day after a two-week recess, according to The Baltimore Sun.

What now do we have to listen to his wife's BS??

Sorry to hear about this. I was hoping he'd be going to jail. He will be forever remembered for a do nothing racist political bigot. Now let's get his wife in jail.

What did he know about the Clintons........

Since I did predict this was coming I am not surprised. I can't remember whether it was cumming's own FB or the Baltimore Sun's but I gave warning for cummings to back the hell off the President and if he didn't he was going to die of either a stroke or a heart issue. Don't be surprised when more of the President Trump haters come down with some "unspecified" health problem. And those health problems will be serious.

He was a disgrace. A hateful bitter old man who is now burning in hell. He tried his best to make the President's life miserable and now his eternity is being spent burning as he well deserves. All democrats take notice. God hates your kind of ugly and He is starting to punish.

Now all I hear is what a wonderful person he was. Really?? How phony can Washington DC be?? Like Joe Biden of Delaware. WTF did he EVER do for Maryland?? He was nothing more than a corrupt, hateful, and race baiting man.

I'm 76 years old and still trying to think of some good stuff to say , so I'll say nothing at all like my mamma taught me.

Oh , please forgive me mamma , he was not a good man , in my opinion.

That’s a great idea. Maybe Mrs Cummings should takeover Elijah’s seat and duties and carry on Elijah’s legacy.

Hate to be critical as we should not revel over one's passing. That having been said, Mr.Cummings came across as a bitter spiteful and racist person who used the power of his gavel to serve up his wrath while overseeing his committee. The evidence is clear concerning his district; at least from my observation he did nothing for his constituents and like Obama ignored the plight of the lesser ones.

Anonymous said...

He was a horrid despicable hateful lying degenerate whose legacy will be trying to take down a duly elected president. Anyone who says differently or anything good about him is just as horrid and a liar as he was. The devil has him now and he is paying for all his lies and corruption.

Jim said...

That's too bad. While I disagreed with him on damn near everything, he was a father and a husband. Because of the daughter and the wife, all I will say is that I pray his soul is at rest with our Father.

Surprisingly little about this on television this morning. They must be super busy putting together their glowing reviews of his career and legacy. I can hear them now:

"brilliant orator"
"champion of the downtrodden"
"civil rights icon"

Nice to see the comments here. Seems most of you guys loved him as much as I did. So now, someone please take away Trump's phone before he tweets unfiltered about this.

Nope. Mrs Cummings will takeover her late husband’s seat and duties in the US House of Representatives and carry on with the great work her dearly departed late husband, the great and honorable Elijah, did just the same as Sonny Bono’s wife did when Sonny smacked into that tree while skiing. Just you wait and see.

The sign says church street historical neighborhood and neither one of the people painted had anything to do with church street historically. I think Norm Conway grew up in the neighborhood why wasn't his likeness painted?? Day your nothing but a sell out

Northwest Woodsman: Wow, what powerful comments and although I didn’t read all of them, it appears that Cummings was not liked or respected. My opinion exactly. Let’s hope that his replacement will be a notch or two above him in the honesty and integrity arena. I’m afraid that it will be another multicultural and affirmative action politician and things will continue with business as usual. This was no great loss and I find it difficult to believe that President Trump could find anything positive to say about him.

Cnfined to a wheelchair and a walker all year, but the public wasn't allowed to see that. Then laid dying for weeks, while still voting in congress for issuing subpoenas. Yeah right. Made up votes just like made up imaginary crimes. Part of the swamp just sank into the mire they call home.

Can someone please share just ONE great thing Cummings did?? I've read a few posts on here of how great a man he was yet Baltimore is in the verge of constant aerial surveillance due to the drug and murder crisis. Yes that's a truly great leader there, IDIOTS!!

Anonymous said...

He represented a district in Maryland, not the entire state. His people, the people that kept voting him into office, loved the great Elijah. Doesn’t make any difference what you or I think of the man. His people, and apparently all of Baltimore, loved him.
