Rep.-elect dead from coronavirus at 41, just days from inauguration

COVID-19 has already claimed the lives of hundreds of thousands of Americans, including a list of celebrities, politicians and other high-profile people.

According to the Daily Caller, the latest victim of the nasty virus was U.S. House of Representatives Louisana Republican Rep.-elect Luke Letlow (R), who reportedly died of complications from the virus at the young age of 41, just days before he was set to begin his career in the lower chamber. 

The young politician was receiving treatment for the virus at St. Francis Medical Center in Monroe, Louisiana. On December 23, presumably because of the complications in his diagnosis, he was transferred to Ochsner LSU Health in Shreveport, Louisiana where just short of a week later he would pass away from the illness.

“Letlow is survived by his wife, Julia Barnhill Letlow, Phd., and two young children. The family appreciates the numerous prayers and support over the past days but asks for privacy during this difficult and unexpected time. A statement from the family along with funeral arrangements will be announced at a later time,” his campaign spokesperson wrote in a statement.

Letlow’s death marks the first fatality of a representative or representative-elect since the beginning of the pandemic earlier in 2020.

According to WDSU, Letlow easily won his 5th District seat, representing Northeast and Central Louisiana, with 62 percent of the vote, securing his place as Rep. Ralph Abraham’s (R-LA) successor.

Louisiana Gov. John Bel Edwards issued a heartfelt statement concerning Letlow’s tragic passing, praising Letlow’s work with former Governor Bobby Jindal and Abraham, saying that Letlow “felt a calling from a young age” to enter a career of serving the people of his home state.

“I hope all of the people of Louisiana will join Donna and me in praying for Congressman-elect Letlow’s family, especially his wife Julia and their two children, his many friends and the people of the 5th Congressional District,” Edwards said.

The governor also ordered flags to be flown at half-staff on the day of Letlow’s funeral to honor the young man’s legacy.

  1. LMAO….if you believe it. They are padding the numbers. A guy fell off his ladder, and broke his neck. They said he died of covid.

    1. You are a reprobate!! I know Luke and he was an astounding born again Christian family man!!! He died of complications from the virus which attacks other organs in the body!! Why doesn’t the virus kill the communist demoncrats instead of the really good people!! BOMB BEIJING!!! BOMB BEIJING!!!

  2. Incorrect. The initial report was a lie. He died of a heart attack after having surgery. Surgery for what was not specified.

  3. I read an article he died from a heart attack but had Covid, its all crap there is no threat just democrats trying to scare people and actually doing a fair job if it because people are really ignorant.

  4. Well we may never know truth again in our country. We will be lead to believe lies, fake news and programed to believe only false propaganda. Mind control. And all truth will be unspoken or blocked. But we have the truth and the future course of things in the Bible.
    We can trust.
    Blessings R.I.

  5. Just don’t believe 90% of the politicians. Of 100% of the media, and you should be okay. If you have to believe either of these groups do so with an open mind and realize they are liars.

  6. Beware of those “never-Trumpers” in the medical establishment, you won’t leave alive if they can help.

  7. God has a plan, it involves all of us, whether we die of covid-19? Or getting hit by a car, or struck by lightning it is in God’s plans.
    Canada has a hundred and fifty thousand Chinese soldiers lined up on the border, the media isn’t telling us this. If you read Revelations, it says that I whip and will be sent to America from the north a weapon unlike anything anybody has ever seen. We haven’t actually seen an EMP. I believe the Chinese are going to use an EMP through Canada and in March right in. Who’s been schmooseling with the Chinese? Well, the parliament went behind there premiers back and brought the Chinese in. The Democrats have been in cahoots with the Chinese, and Reno that’s a big press has been connected to the Chinese as well. So what do you think?

  8. They changed some words, I SAID, THAT REVALUATIONS SAYS THAT aweapon never seen before will be set upon us from the North. We have not seen an EMP.
