BOSTON, Massachusetts (AP) -- Former U.S. Rep. Gerry Studds, the first openly gay person elected to Congress, died early Saturday at Boston Medical Center, a hospital official said. He was 69.
Christian Kiriakos, central administrator at the hospital, said Studds died between 1 a.m. and 2 a.m. He did not have additional information, and details of Studds' death could not be immediately confirmed.
Studds, a liberal Democrat who spent more than 20 years in Congress, was censured by the House in the 1980s for having sex with a 17-year-old male page. He was re-elected for several more terms.
Last year he married his longtime partner, Dean Hara, in Boston.

Oh, the irony...
Finally news from Boston ......oh well, never mind
Paging Howie Carr. Oops, did I say page?
That was my first thought...particularly when FNC says that no one was aware he was sick or had any physical problems.
no half stiff!!!!
Are you talking about his name having been in the news lately or the, "dead at 69" headline?
The freakin obituaries in MA are "R" rated now. I guess there is not much a parent would want there kids reading in the Gay State eh?
Another thread on this said it was resulting from injuries sustained by a fall while walking his dog....
Have there been any rumors of Aides? Sixty-nine is pretty young these days.
This thread is going bad. A man has died. Let the Man upstairs handle it.
This has to be a pre written obituary that CNN had composed some time ago when they were proudly boasting of his accomplishments as a Democrat.
They will change this Obit in a hurry when they realize how it sounds in light of the Republican Foley/Hastert scandal.
OK, paging Aerosmith then. :-)
Probably quite a few times.
You should see the other one.
***Another thread on this said it was resulting from injuries sustained by a fall while walking his dog....***
Here is the earlier thread.
I agree. Who the heck has talked about this guy in 20 years until Foley hits the news then WHAM!!
