Carrying out federal executions during a deadly pandemic puts hundreds of people at risk from local community members to Bureau of Prison employees to lawyers and advocates. As my dear friend Elijah Cummings said, we as United States citizens, are better than this. #OrlandoHall 

For this week's GC profile, I spoke with de Blasio's counsel, @lipak23 , about pandemic-related closures, police reform, and the election — as well as a lesson shared with him by the late Rep. Elijah Cummings.

“I think that a lot of us, by the millions, had in mind that we owed it to John Lewis and Elijah Cummings. We owed it to Shirley Chisholm," @TheRevAl  said. "We had a reason to vote, but because of the John Lewises, we had the capacity to vote. And we were not going to waste it."

After winning an April special election, Mfume, 72, is seeking to hold on to the 7th Congressional District long represented by his late friend Elijah Cummings — and by Mfume for 10 years before that.

Thinking of John McCain, John Lewis and Elijah Cummings today

I’m thinking today of the words of Rep. Elijah Cummings. At a hearing for a bill to restore voting rights, he said, “When we’re dancing with the angels, the question will be asked: What did we do to make sure we kept our democracy intact?” What will you do over the next 7 days?

Why is so much money sent to the Elijah Cummings district when it is considered the worst run and most dangerous anywhere in the United States. No human being would want to live there. Where is all this money going? How much is stolen? Investigate this corrupt mess immediately!

Someone please explain to Nancy Pelosi, who was recently called racist by those in her own party, that there is nothing wrong with bringing out the very obvious fact that elijah cummings'>Congressman Elijah Cummings has done a very poor job for his district and the City of Baltimore. Just take...

Baltimore’s numbers are the worst in the United States on Crime and the Economy. Billions of dollars have been pumped in over the years, but to no avail. The money was stolen or wasted. Ask Elijah Cummings where it went. He should investigate himself with his Oversight Committee!

Rep, Elijah Cummings has been a brutal bully, shouting and screaming at the great men & women of Border Patrol about conditions at the Southern Border, when actually his Baltimore district is FAR WORSE and more dangerous. His district is considered the Worst in the USA......

There is nothing racist in stating plainly what most people already know, that Elijah Cummings has done a terrible job for the people of his district, and of Baltimore itself. Dems always play the race card when they are unable to win with facts. Shame!

We heard that Donald Trump only cares about the big stuff that helps him personally. The question now is — what do we care about? The Constitution? Our oath of office? Or merely our party. In the words of Elijah Cummings: We are better than that.

....a look, the facts speak far louder than words! The Democrats always play the Race Card, when in fact they have done so little for our Nation’s great African American people. Now, lowest unemployment in U.S. history, and only getting better. Elijah Cummings has failed badly!

Baltimore, under the leadership of Elijah Cummings, has the worst Crime Statistics in the Nation. 25 years of all talk, no action! So tired of listening to the same old Bull...Next, Reverend Al will show up to complain & protest. Nothing will get done for the people in need. Sad!

So sad that Elijah Cummings has been able to do so little for the people of Baltimore. Statistically, Baltimore ranks last in almost every major category. Cummings has done nothing but milk Baltimore dry, but the public is getting wise to the bad job that he is doing!

Elijah Cummings spends all of his time trying to hurt innocent people through “Oversight.” He does NOTHING for his very poor, very dangerous and very badly run district! Take a look.... #BlacksForTrump2020
