“Elijah Cummings, a Maryland Democrat and House Oversight Chairman, dies at 68”
- Editor’s note: Rep. Cummings was one of the few Congressional leaders that earned my deep respect over the years. A man of immense integrity, impeccability, intelligence, understanding and wisdom. This man’s leadership in a highly fracture government will be a huge loss for the United States. His wife reportedly said Cummings worked for America until his last breath. I honor him and send blessings to his widow, family and the citizens of Baltimore. The nation now mourns for this great man!
