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.
Way, way too young.
Prayers to her family.
Death by misadventure often falls into a different category of emotion.
Anyone forcing you to peruse FR?
Very sad, it’s always a wake up call when someone dies suddenly. Appreciate every moment you have.
you are kind of a discordant note on this thread, don’t you think?
Why? Because someone died as the result of stupidity from their criminal actions? Sorry. No sympathy here. I pray that she didn’t breed, and if she did, I pray the child is raised better than that - but not by its maternal grandparent(s).
I love FR. Just don’t love that one little part about crying over Kennedy.
And nobody forced Kennedy to KILL that girl, be a sub-human, take my guns, and hate my country. No sympathy here.
Please, quit it. Wrong time and place.
Go for a walk and get some fresh air.
May she rest in peace.
Prayers to her family, this must have been a huge shock to them.
Don't. You reap what you sow.
Doctors just said she has limited brian function at this point. She is alive.
She’s not dead.
Thanks for the link to the shoplifter. I hadn’t seen it before and LOL.
I’m listening to local radio. A Huron Hospital doctor said she has limited brain function. But she hasn’t died.
