Rep. Lantos Passes Away -- Was Part of Oversight Committee

U.S. Rep. Tom Lantos (D-CA) passed away today at the age of 80 due to complications of cancer to the esophagus. Lantos was the second ranking Democrat on the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, but due to his health it is not known what role, if any, he would have played in Wednesday's hearings.

Lantos is the only Holocaust survivor to ever be elected to Congress.
