McStreamy.com – United States Congressman Elijah Eugene Cummings, 68, died October 17, 2019. Cummings was an American politician and civil rights advocate who served in the United States House of Representatives for Maryland’s 7th congressional district from 1996 until his death. The district includes just over half of the city of Baltimore, most of the majority-black precincts of Baltimore County, as well as most of Howard County. He previously served in the Maryland House of Delegates and was a member of the Democratic Party. At the time of his death, Cummings was chairman of the House Oversight Committee, in the midst of an Impeachment Inquiry regarding the presidency of Donald J. Trump.
“I am among those who have not lost confidence in our ability to ‘right the ship’ of American democratic life,” Cummings wrote in a soon to be published book. “But I also realize that we are in a fight, a fight for the soul of our democracy,” Cummings wrote. As chairman of the Oversight Committee, he suggested, “When we’re dancing with the angels, the question will be asked, in 2019, what did we do, to help make sure we kept our democracy intact?” Cummings was worried that his fellow congressmen and women might not act to protect Democracy until it’s too late. He wondered, “Did we stand on the sidelines and say nothing?”
Cummings passed away at Gilchrist Hospice Care, a Johns Hopkins affiliate, at 2:45 a.m. from “complications concerning longstanding health challenges.” Cummings, born Jan. 18, 1951, was an early supporter of the candidacy of President Barack Obama in 2008. He was an attorney and had been a powerful speaker in the Maryland General Assembly, after being elected to the Maryland House of Delegates in 1983. Cummings carried that tradition forward into the United States Congress in 1996.
