    Powerful Democratic Congressman Elijah Cummings has died

    Not a fan of his, but wouldn't wish an early death on anyone.

    This will change up leadership of the house oversight committee, and could potentially change up how the impeachment inquiry continues.

    Rep. Carolyn Maloney will be acting chair in the committee.

    Thoughts?
     
  2. I'm not sure how Baltimore is going to find a replacement to do such a fantastic job of governing them.

    Maybe Sheila Jackson Lee, from the Houston area, can multi-task and rake in twice the salary?

    to me whatever good he has done has been wiped out by his partisan attacks as a chairman. I had nothing good to say about him when he was alive.

    The legacy of his policies will live on in Baltimore.

    His funeral will be interesting to watch. I expect another Paul Wellstone type of fiasco.

    Refresh my memory. Being from Mn. I know Wellstone was well liked by most Minnesotans ( I tend to hate them all) but I can't remember what you call a fiasco.

    That sounds like what I thought Trump would say but his tweet uncharacteristicly showed some restraint.

    Half the article was spent attacking Trump.

    Saw it on Fox first, but wanted to post a link from a different site to keep @bacha29 from going full on meltdown mode.

    I have seen hardly any Cummings stories that didn't use it as an excuse to attack Trump. Instead of being about Cumming's own accomplishments. Of course then it would have to explain how a poor sharecropper's son ended up with so much money,

    Yeah I don't go nice just cause the guy died.

    I'm sure he did some good but overall he was a partisan hack and incompetent.
