He found out his video with Larry Craig may go public?
 
2007-09-05 12:36:48 PM  
I was just going to submit this with a better headline.

Damn CNN for not writing an article fast enough.

nice. I lol'd.
 
2007-09-05 12:37:07 PM  
What was his stance like?
 
2007-09-05 12:37:16 PM  
Early reports say it was probably from the shame of being Republican.
 
2007-09-05 12:37:16 PM  
He was found in his bathroom.

Maybe one day, we'll get a story about a republican that doesn't take place in a bathroom.
 
2007-09-05 12:37:25 PM  
Crazy.

Anybody know the story? Did this guy have some scandal? Apparent suicide? Or is he an older guy, died of old age or something?

RIP

Dammit... beaten to the punch again. Damn CNN.
 
2007-09-05 12:38:32 PM  
*sigh* Cue the gay jokes and republican bashing for someone who died of a heart attack. Condolences to the family.

Unhappy Gillmor.

They think heart attack.
 
2007-09-05 12:39:22 PM  
So full of shiat he exploded?
 
2007-09-05 12:39:23 PM  
But was his...

2007-09-05 12:39:25 PM  
So now he's going to vote Democrat.
 
2007-09-05 12:39:28 PM  
Was he too big for Hillary to get him over to Fort Marcy Park?
 
2007-09-05 12:39:34 PM  
Sad to hear

If only their was a news article about it, like on webpage or something, we might get to the bottom of this mystery!

Nice karma strike there. Only need a few thousand more Republicans to die, then maybe it'll be even with the Iraqi death toll.
 
2007-09-05 12:40:48 PM  
Goodnight law-making-man.
 
2007-09-05 12:40:52 PM

2007-09-05 12:41:19 PM  
oh republicans, always dying of heart attacks while in office
 
2007-09-05 12:41:20 PM  
Is there some reason in particular that this is interesting?

The US is the 4th largest country in the world, in terms of population. Yours? 53rd.

Can Pelosi account for where she was at the time of his death?

Guess what country most Fark users are browsing from. Go ahead, take a wild stab at it.
 
2007-09-05 12:42:02 PM  
I feel bad for him, and being 68 at that weight, I am sure it was a medical thing.

He broke his neck trying to suck his own dick.

It's not gay if you do it to yourself, I guess.

Well, when other countries, like yours, start inventing their own internet systems that are as successful as the one used now and lead the world in communications technology we'll start caring more about them, k?

Fark is American site founded by an American, hosted in America, and mostly read by Americans. If you don't like it, start www.crikey.au or something.

Lighten up, francis.

The vast majority of news on Fark is american. That's because, gasp, most members are american. That being said, the death of a member of the house or senate is a bigger deal to americans than Joe Schmoe from another country. And if you don't like the story, don't click it?

He actually has a point though. How many of you actually know the names of your representatives and senators?
