'Congress has lost a champion': Twitter reacts to death of Elijah Cummings

As news of House Oversight Committee Chairman Elijah Cummings death broke Thursday morning, reactions began flooding in.

Cummings died suddenly at 68 due to complications from long-standing health problems. The Maryland Democrat was first elected in 1996 and rose in prominence among leaders in his party.

Cummings became chairman of the House Oversight Committee in January when Democrats took over control of the House.

There was a bipartisan outpouring of praise for his legacy and support for his family.

"Deeply saddened by the passing of Chairman Elijah Cummings. He spoke truth to power, defended the disenfranchised and represented West Baltimore with strength and dignity. Congress has lost a Champion. Heaven has gained an Angel of Justice. May he forever #RestInPower," House Democratic Caucus Chairman Hakeem Jeffries said.

Republican Rep. Will Hurd of Texas wrote, "My thoughts are with the loved ones of Rep. Elijah Cummings and the Baltimore community today. He was a shining example of how to be a fighter for his constituents. It was an honor to know him and I will cherish that I had the honor of calling him my friend. He will be missed."

"A champion for the poor and downtrodden, Rep. Elijah Cummings has departed. He strove through decades of service to bring justice and dignity to greater numbers in this world. We honor his life and his work, and pledge to continue his fight. Rest now, great soul," said Star Trek star George Takei...

The politicians show respect for a crook as they are no better themselves. It would be interesting to hear their real thoughts.

Just another racist troublemaker!
