Condolences are flooding in for John Lewis instead of Elijah Cummings on Twitter

By

Longtime Baltimore Congressman Elijah Cummings died on October 17 at the age of 68. He was a Democratic stronghold in the House and a fierce opponent of Donald Trump. According to his office’s statement, the cause of death was “complications concerning long-standing health challenges.” 

People flocked to Twitter to share their condolences and rightfully celebrate the incredible impact of this dogged fighter for the people. There was just one small problem. Many have been mixing up Congressman Elijah Cummings, who passed away, and Congressman John Lewis, who kind of maybe sort of maybe kind of looks a little bit like Cummings, and is alive and well.
