BREAKING – U.S. Rep. Don Young, R-Alaska, the longest-serving member of the House, died Friday night at Los Angeles International Airport while he was on his way home, FOX News reports. He was 88.
The cause of death was not yet determined.
Young, a California native, had served in Congress since winning a special election in 1973.
As disgusting as this may sound, Democrats are celebrating his death.
From The Beltway Report:
There are plenty of people in Washington DC that we do not like, however, you will NEVER find us celebrating the death of a political opponent … NEVER.
There has been no shortage of death over the last few years thanks to Covid and now the war in Ukraine among other thing. The last thing this world needs to more death and destruction.
I guess I should not be surprised that they people who treat infanticide, or as they call it ‘abortion’ as a sacrament would be thrilled to see their political adversaries die.
That is exactly what is happening now that Don Young has passed on to be with his creator …
The Gateway Pundit reported:
REPUBLICAN REP. DON YOUNG, 88, OF ALASKA, THE LONGEST-SERVING MEMBER OF THE CURRENT CONGRESS, HAS DIED AFTER HAVING SERVED FOR 48 YEARS.
The Dean of the House, and its oldest member, has passed away while traveling to his home state of Alaska.
“It’s with heavy hearts and deep sadness that we announce Congressman Don Young (R-AK), the Dean of the House and revered champion for Alaska, passed away today while traveling home to Alaska to be with the state and people that he loved. His beloved wife Anne was by his side,” a statement released from his office announced.
Young has been serving in Alaska since 1973 when he won a special election following the disappearance of Congressman Nick Begich who was declared dead earlier that year.
President Trump issued a statement back in December calling for Young to be primaried by an America First candidate following Young’s decision to support Biden’s infrastructure bill.

Regardless of how you feel about his policies, liberals are already out in force celebrating the death of another Republican:
I just told my Alaskan husband (who doesn't use Twitter). He said in joy, "Finally! I need to text my parents!" pic.twitter.com/wHYlPtTPvF— Susi 🚫👮♂️ (@SusiLarew) March 19, 2022
That is sick.
FOX News has more:
“He was vibrant, he had a lot of energy, he’s very clear of mind, spoke clearly about what he wanted to accomplish, set goals that he wanted to make happen, and was happy to be running,” said Jack Ferguson, a lobbyist who served as Young’s chief of staff, according to Anchorage Daily News.
Young also served as a tugboat captain and trapper. He famously wielded the pubic bone of a walrus on the House floor during debate once. Young also pulled a knife and held it against the throat of former U.S. Rep. John Boehner, R-Ohio, before Boehner became speaker.
In 2014, a report from the House Ethics Committee found Young to have violated House rules by improperly using campaign funds to pay for 15 personal hunting trips that took place between 2001 and 2013. The congressman was required to pay back more than $59,000 in campaign funds that covered the cost of gifts he received and the majority, if not all, of the expenses associated with the hunting trips.
Hey, compared to what democrats like Clinton, Pelosi and numerous others that is nothing.
We all know the government is corrupt as all hell but celebrating a man who served his country is sick.
Democrats are evil piles of garbage.
Our deepest condolences go out to the family, friends and colleagues.
Rest in peace brother.
