Congressman John Lewis

Congressman Elijah Cummings

Two senators, Maro Rubio (R-FL) and Dan Sullivan (R-AK) made the same mistake. 

They issued statements to the public on the passing of Congressman John Lewis.  Both said it was and honor to know and serve with Lewis.

Unfortunately, they or their staffs didn’t know Lewis well enough to recognize his picture.  Both Rubio and Sullivan included a picture of Elijah Cummings instead of John Lewis.  Elijah Cummings was also a US Representative but he passed away October of 2019.

Maybe the mistake is a symptom of how little the two political parties actually work together. Both Lewis and Cummings are Democrats.
