U.S. Congressman
    (January 18, 1951-October 17, 2019)
    Born in Baltimore, Maryland
    Represents Maryland's 7th congressional district in the House of Representatives (Beginning in 1996)
    Previously served in the Maryland House of Delegates (1983-96)
    Chair of the House Committee on Oversight and Reform
    He could pass as a John L. Lewis doppelganger.
    The physical resemblance between the two men is so uncanny that personalities from both CNN and Fox News have confused them on-air.
    He engaged in a war of words with President Trump over the state of his district after criticizing border detention facilities, in which Trump decried West Baltimore as a 'rat- and rodent-infested mess' (Jul. 2019).
    Although the President's comments were criticized as racist by many, some on the right pointed to a 1999 House floor speech in which he described Baltimore as 'a drug-infested area where people are walking around like zombies.'
    In his role as chair of the Oversight Committee he presided over the first public testimony by President Trump's former lawyer, Michael Cohen.
    He defended Mark Meadows during a heated exchange with Rashida Tlaib, after she accused Meadows of using Lynne Patton as a prop to deflect from accusations of racism.
    His home in West Baltimore was burglarized during his feud with President Trump, who gloated about it in a tweet ('too bad!')
    He responded to President Trump's attacks in a statement: 'Mr. President, I go home to my district daily. Each morning, I wake up, and I go and fight for my neighbors. It is my constitutional duty to conduct oversight of the Executive Branch. But, it is my moral duty to fight for my constituents.'
