Andrew Breitbart, the Los Angeles-based conservative web innovator and author who died Thursday, was memorialized on the floor of U.S. Congress.
“There was no stopping Andrew Breitbart from fighting the good fight with every fiber of his soul,” said Rep. Thaddeus McCotter (R-MI) in Congress. “Goodbye and God bless, Brother Andrew. You are loved and mourned and ever remembered.”
He was also remembered on the airwaves today. Fox News anchor Sean Hannity said: “Andrew took no prisoners. He didn’t have a governor. He didn’t have a shut-off valve.”
Officials at Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center suspected his death was due to natural causes, Breitbart’s father-in-law, actor Orson Bean, told The Times.
“He was walking near the house somewhere…. He was taken by paramedics to UCLA and they couldn’t revive him,” said Bean, who spoke with his daughter, Susannah Bean Breitbart, about what happened.
