    Congressman Tom Lantos, Human Rights Champion, Dies
    14-Term Congressman Tom Lantos, a champion of human rights issues and the only Holocaust survivor ever to win a seat in Congress has died at the age of 80.

    Congressman Lantos, Chairman of the House Foreign Affairs Committee, dedicated much of his life to seeking freedom and justice for those who suffered the deprivation of human rights. As an example of his activism, at the age of 78, he was one of five members of Congress arrested in a protest at the Sudanese Embassy over the genocide in Darfur. In 1983, he founded the Congressional Human Rights Caucus.

    Agree with your sentiments AffiliateHound. He was one of the rare gentlemen in congress who always spoke very eloquently on topics he felt passionate about. Even tho he was passionate he was always respectful to those who disagreed with him. Congress could definitely use others who were like him. Condolences to his family. I'm sure he will be missed by those he represented.
