Ohio Congresswoman Stephanie Tubbs Jones passed away due to a brain aneurysm. She was 58 years old. The congresswoman was found unconscious at the wheel of her car in a Cleveland suburb on Tuesday. She was removed from life support today.
The first black woman to represent Ohio in Congress, Jones was in her fifth term in Congress. She was a staunch supporter of Hillary Rodham Clinton during the primary phase of the presidential election. Jones was also noted for lodging a formal objection to the certification of the 2004 presidential election in Ohio due to voting irregularities that allowed President Bush to win the state of Ohio.
