Posted on 10/14/2006 7:20:42 AM PDT by melt
BOSTON - 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.
Talk about timing.
The timing of this is suspicious.
Actually, the timing of this is delicious.
Bumped his head walking his dog late at night in a park?
Sounds like something else was happening in the park, and his arms gave out, causing a pavement rash on his forehead. Forensics should look at his knees as well...
This is eerie. I do not remember much being made of this at the time.
Funny how the memory goes....
A 17 year old page? And he actually had sex with him?
And then didn't resign?
I'm finding this all hard to believe.
of AIDS ?????
Naw...No more so that Foster's suicide during the Clinton administration. After all, what's so hard to grasp about shooting yourself in the head, then walking to a park and dying there with no physical evidence at the scene?
Was it AIDS?
Come on ev'rybody we've got quilting to do.
Don't be surprised - at the time, the MSM had an almost absolute lock on what we saw.
God Bless Al Gore for inventing the Internet so we can actually have access to the truth!
You've obviously never been to Massachusetts!
And,BTW,it must be noted that Studds got the kid drunk before having buggered him.
Well, it's going to be awfully interesting to see how the dems cover his death. Will they memorialize him?? Afterall he was in congress forEVER, inspite of his perversions!! hmmmm.
ps. If I hear anymore crap about GOP "image" problems, I'll scream!
Dead men don't talk!
Karl Rove killed him so he would be in the news
