Louise Slaughter dies at 88

Rep. Louise Slaughter, a Democrat who represented the Rochester area in Congress since 1987, died Friday morning in a Washington, D.C., hospital. She was 88.

Her office released a statement confirming her passing. Slaughter fell at her Washington residence last week and was taken to George Washington University Hospital to receive treatment and monitoring for a concussion.

Slaughter was recognized as a fierce legislator who blazed trails for other women to enter politics.

"[She] was a living icon for women from all walks of life who wanted to get off the sidelines and make a positive change in their community," said Jamie Romeo, chair of the Monroe County Democratic Party. "I know many, including myself, would not be where they are today without the support and guidance from Louise."

Slaughter’s longtime friend, former Democratic elections commissioner Betsy Relin, said that Slaughter preferred to die just as she did.
