R.I.P. Congresswoman Stephanie Tubbs Jones
Posted August 21, 2008on:
Congresswoman Stephanie Tubbs Jones died just yesterday from a brain hemorrhage caused by an aneurysm. Check out the report:
Representative Stephanie Tubbs Jones, a longtime member of Congress and most recently a stalwart supporter of Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton, died yesterday just after 6 p.m. Her hometown paper, The Cleveland Plain Dealer, reported earlier that the police found her unconscious in her car on Tuesday night, after seeing it weave erratically. She was seeking her sixth term in Congress. And she was a prominent member of the Congressional Black Caucus as well as a recent co-chairwoman of the Ethics Committee, which she helped to rebuild after a stormy period when the Foley page scandal rocked the House of Representatives.
She was 58 years old. Our thoughts and prayers go out to her family and friends.
