U.S. Rep. Stephanie Tubbs Jones, the first black woman to represent Ohio in Congress, died Wednesday evening at a Cleveland area hospital after suffering an aneurysm.
Tubbs Jones, 58, chaired the House Ethics Committee and was one of Hillary Clintons biggest supporters during the Democratic primaries.
The liberal Democrat, first elected in 1998, suffered a brain hemorrhage while driving her car in Cleveland Heights Tuesday night, said Dr. Gus Kious, president of Huron Hospital. He said the very serious hemorrhage was caused by an aneurysm that burst in an inaccessible part of her brain.
Her death was announced late Wednesday in a statement from the family, Huron Hospital and the Cleveland Clinic. They said she died at 6:12 p.m.
Rest in Peace Stephanie.
Prayers for her friends and family..
Prayers for her family. RIP
Now to the politics?
Who does FoxNews think will be named to replace her?
Yes, she was a Hillary superdelegate.
Prayers for her and her family. 58’s way too young to go.
The unbelievable thing was the top story at the top of the hour on the national ABC Radio news was that she had been taken to the hospital — not that she had passed away, mind you, but that she had been taken to the hospital.
The SECOND top story was the deaths of 140 people in a plane crash.
I just have to shake my head sometimes at the Drive-By Media. Until my teeth rattle.
Sad to hear. I hope she was able to make her peace with God before her passing.
She was removed from life support at 12:19 p.m. at Huron Road Hospital, the sources said.
Tubbs Jones, 58, served as a Cuyahoga County judge and prosecutor before succeeding U.S. Rep. Louis Stokes. She has served five terms in Congress and is expected to easily win her sixth in November.
Is Diane Feinstein a superdelegate or just a delegate?
She just broke her ankle and isn’t going to the convention now. She was a strong Hillary Clinton supporter.
I’m not trying to get all “conspiracy” or anything, but keep your eye on Ed Rendell of PA. He just announced he’s going to vote for Hillary.
Remember what Obama did in Chicago so he could run unopposed? Does Alice Palmer ring a bell?
I don’t trust Obama at all. He’s a dirty, dirty guy with creep, criminal friends. I wouldn’t be surpised at all if he’s working behind the scenes to threaten the Hillary-supporting delegates and superdelegates to not vote for her during the convention so it will truly be just a symbolic vote, like the Obama gang wants it to be.
Prayers for her family.
Reason why it’s important to be right with God. It’s a matter of heaven or hell. You never know when your number is up! Prayers lift up for her family.
Yep and so, was the AR DNC chairman that was killed last week.
Very sad. Young too.
Or it could just be coincidence.
Prayers for her family.
Yes, 58 is too young. Prayers for her family and friends,
It’s a terribly sad moment for her family I’m certain. Prayers for them all.
