Stephanie Tubbs Jones Passes Away

Congresswoman Stephanie Tubbs-Jones has, tragically, suffered a brain aneurysm and died at the age of 58.

A liberal Democrat, Ms. Tubbs-Jones was the first African-American woman to be elected to Congress from Ohio. She showed her courage and backbone when she joined Barbara Boxer as the House co-sponsor of the motion to de-certify the votes from Ohio in the 2004 election. (Ohio was the scene of the most blatant fraud in that election, although Florida ran a close second.) Had more of her colleagues followed her example, we might have gotten rid of Bush four years ago.

The Congresswoman will be a sorely-missed voice in the House of Representatives. I hope her loved ones know how much we support them in this difficult time.

  1. Stephanie was an African American woman who was not afraid to fight for what was right!! She is to be commended for going against those who tried to strongarm other AA’s into voting obama simply because he is black. She stood her ground and was a woman steeped in principles. She will be missed and I so much appreciated her friendship with Hillary….condolences to Stephanie’s family; may they find peace.
