Update 2: CNN reporting that she has NOT died. WTF? I’m seeing headlines change left and right. It must be a situation where she probably will not make it, but hasn’t officially passed away. Hopefully someone will get what really is happening soon.

Update: I’m hearing now that Tubbs Jones has passed away. Massive brain trauma and she was taken off life support this morning. Rumors of her demise appear to be true.

ht brewedfresh tweet, via PD:

CLEVELAND — Representatives for U.S. Rep. Stephanie Tubbs Jones are expected to update her condition around noon.

Her condition is believed to be serious and rumors are flying that she had died.

Her spokesman Joe Hewitt said “she has not passed.”

The update will come about 15 hours after Tubbs Jones is believed to have suffered a brain aneurysm while driving in Cleveland Heights. She was rushed to Huron Road Hospital Tuesday night.

    Depending how serious the aneurism is, many times you’re better off dying.

    She is certainly no loss for the area…. She was a criminal that refused to prosecute Forbes, and White, back in the early 90’s on the Behive School scam because they were black! As a congressman, she never did a single positive thing for the area.

  • Luckily they removed them. Good job folks! Shut down the anonymous troll idiots that flock to your space.

  • Expect my full expose of the Cleveland Plain Dealer and reporter “Plain Dealer staff” on their inaccurate and potentially damaging reports that Stephanie Tubbs Jones had died.

    They have corrected their shoddy reporting to say she is in “critical condition”.

    Wonder if they got her phone number right…

  • Yikes! Three trackback links? I apologize if something screwy happened at my end to cause that. I only hit post once.

    I think you covered it the right way, you clearly stated it was a rumor and provided quick updates. That’s better than writing something that has to be pulled as it appears some of the media is now doing.

  • Yeah. I wonder if they PeeDee will do a big story on how they fucked this up?


  • They’ll blame the bloggers.
