“Elijah E. Cummings, a Democratic congressman from Maryland who gained national attention for his principled stands on politically charged issues in the House, his calming effect on anti-police riots in Baltimore, and his forceful opposition to the presidency of Donald Trump, died Oct. 17 at a hospice center in Baltimore. He was 68.

The cause was “complications concerning long-standing health challenges,” his office said in a statement. Mr. Cummings was chairman of the House Oversight and Reform Committee and a leading figure in the Trump impeachment inquiry and had been out of his office for weeks while recovering from an unspecified medical procedure.

Born to a family of Southern sharecroppers and Baptist preachers, Mr. Cummings grew up in the racially fractured Baltimore of the 1950s and 1960s. At 11, he helped integrate a local swimming pool while being attacked with bottles and rocks. “Perry Mason,” the popular TV series about a fictional defense lawyer, inspired him to enter the legal profession.”

  6. It should be hate speech also to point out that almost 100% of interracial rapes involve a non white male perpetrator and a white victim.

  7. Good riddance to bad rubbish.

  8. Total piece of shit! Did nothing for his district ! full throated about DACA though. Too bad it wasn't a murder suicide . Him and Clyburn! Milk Toast bitch ass nigga

  9. The TV show THE WIRE should pretty much tell you all you need to know about this guy🤷‍♂️

  10. FINALLY, FINALLY, FINALLY, FINALLY! What a relief for America!!! Good riddance!!!! One piece of garbage less to vomit on President Trump.

  11. makes me happy hes gone. maybe now we can get someone in Baltimore who will care and represent the Black community for a change. bye bye uncle remus sellout

  12. so what exactly did cummings do..??…what bills did he initiate and what was his voting record..??…did he vote for the Iraq war / nafta / prison & welfare reform / repeal of glass-steagal / deregulation / defense bills / worker's rights and unions…..so what did he do besides give speeches.?? we need to know facts….

  13. He was a massive shitstain. Corrupt to the end.

  14. Haha… Ana hates the… tick, tick, tick, tick 🙂

  15. Rest In Heaven Elijah Cummings 💔💔💔

  16. He did a lot of great and sellout things but still a great man, over-al! <3

  17. May His Gentle Soul rest In Peace

  18. Elijah Cummings was a corrupt liar.

  19. We want more war! booo trump

  20. I’m gonna take a massive shit. That’s the BEST way I can remember and honor Elijah Cummings.

  21. David Dayen is the shit. I just sub'd to American Prospect. Anyone who reads this should too.

  22. Such is the magnitude of Elijah Cummings that my mother in law ,a 80 year old white woman from UK, said "Oh no not Mr Cummings" and said a quiet prayer

  23. white supremacists FEARED him! they probably had him killed. The Democrats need to launch a HATE CRIME investigation. Somebody needs to be held accountable!

  24. Elijah Cummings Is a prime example of how the Democratic Party robs Black people of all dignity. He went from being a Civil rights icon to a pitiful joke. RIP

  25. RIP to one of the finest members of Congress we have had

  26. Elijah cumming was a Marxist slumlord that stole from the city of Baltimore that committed treason against American citizens and hated everything about America and its constitution. you wont be missed !

  27. Ana's boyfriend is in the hospital with multiple contusions…..He asked her for a BJ. Last thing he heard before the beating was "Ohhhh ya Mr Man…….PooOoOoof."

  28. Onlookers were stunned when millions of bats flew out of Cumming's ass when he assumed room temperature. No doubt showing him the way to Hell.

  29. Did tramp lower the flag at the white House for Elijah

  30. Cummings was a sell out uncle Tom. He did NOTHING for his rat infested dump of a city. Many of the great people of Baltimore will tell you that.
    My hope is that the beautiful people of Baltimore get someone in place that will actually address the mess in that city, instead of lining their pockets as Cummings did. What a disgrace to his people and to America. RIP

  31. Dead race baiter. Neat. Now you guys need to be charlie hebdoed and its a good day.

  32. Epitaph to a true swamp creature! "When I die don't bury me deep, leave one hand up to fleece the sheep"! I suggest they embalm him, cremate him, & bury him! DON'T TAKE ANY CHANCES!

  33. Why? He was in his position for decades and never got anything done. All he did was disagree with trump and apparantly that’s enough for you anti-American pieces of shit😆

  34. at least we dont have to listen to this hateful racist crook anymore. maybe Baltimore can now grow
