Former 2012 GOP presidential candidate Herman Cain has passed away at the age of 74 from a month long battle with coronavirus.

Cain, who is also the former CEO of a pizza business, died on Thursday monring at an Atlanta-area hospital where he had been admitted with the illness and placed on oxygen support for several weeks.

The announcement of Cain’s passing came via Dan Calabrese, who edits the Newsmax website.

“Herman Cain — our boss, our friend, like a father to so many of us — has passed away,” Calabrese said in the blog post. “We all prayed so hard every day. We knew the time would come when the Lord would call him home, but we really liked having him here with us, and we held out hope he’d have a full recovery.”

Cain was diagnosed with the coronavirus less than two weeks after attending a rally for President Trump in Tulsa, Oklahoma. Cain was photographed at the event without wearing a mask, but it’s unclear if that’s where he contracted the virus.

Cain, a former chairman of the Federal Reserve Bank of Kansas City, was co-chairman of Black Voices for Trump and was considered for the Federal Reserve by President Trump. He was at a higher risk to contract the coronavirus virus given his age and cancer history.

The former presidential candidate was diagnosed with colon cancer back in 2006, and even though the awful disease spread to his liver, he managed to defeat it and was cancer-free for all of these years.

Tragic to see someone like Cain, who is somewhat of an icon for black conservatives, taken out so savagely by this awful illness. Folks, as much as we fight against the hysteria for coronavirus — and we should — there needs to be balance in the approach.

This illness is serious business and a healthy respect for its capabilities is essential to getting it under control.

Man Arrested for Rape Is Let Out of Jail Over COVID-19, Then Murders the Woman He Raped

Still want to let criminals out?

Democrat policies made this unfortunate story possible. Liberal “leaders” won’t take any of the blame, though. Sure, the only person to commit a criminal act was Ibrahim Bouaichi, but he shouldn’t have been released from jail in the first place. Are Dems still cool with freeing bad people? From TDW: A Maryland man being held in a Virginia prison on rape charges was released over coronavirus concerns, then allegedly murdered his accuser, according to police. Police tracked down and found Ibrahim Bouaichi, 33, in Prince George’s County, Maryland, on Wednesday. Authorities sought Bouaichi in connection with the death of Karla Dominguez, who had accused Bouaichi of rape and testified against him in October, according to The Washington Post. CONTINUED: When police located Bouaichi, he fled in his car until he crashed. Police moving to arrest him found that he had apparently shot himself. Bouaichi remained in critical condition on Thursday. Partly on Dominguez’s testimony, Bouaichi was indicted on five felony charges of rape, sodomy, strangulation, abduction, and burglary. Bouaichi was held without bail in an Alexandria prison facility until April 9, when Circuit Court Judge Nolan Dawkins ordered his release on a $25,000 bond.

Busted.

If Rashida Tlaib was a Republican and got caught illegal distributing funds from a campaign, there would be calls for her immediate resignation. But she’s a Democrat – so it’s all good! From Fox News: Rep. Rashida Tlaib has been ordered to repay $10,800 to her campaign committee to account for the salary she had paid herself from her campaign coffers after she had been elected to Congress in 2018. The bipartisan House Ethics Committee found the Michigan Democrat’s violation “was one of bad timing and not ill intent.” The committee ordered her to pay $10,800 of the $17,500 she received from her campaign in 2018. Congressional candidates are allowed to draw paychecks from their campaigns, but payments are only allowed during an active candidacy. Continued: “The committee did not find that she sought to unjustly enrich herself by receiving the campaign funds at issue,” the committee wrote Friday. “Indeed, during her campaign, Representative Tlaib received a conservative amount of campaign funds, well below the legal threshold for the maximum amount of salary she was eligible to receive; these payments allowed her to forego her salary from her full-time employment so that she could fully participate in campaign activities.” LOOK: https://twitter.com/RashidaTlaib/status/1245428215751065602?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1245428215751065602&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftwitchy.com%2Fbrettt-3136%2F2020%2F04%2F01%2Frep-rashida-tlaib-reminds-us-the-covid-19-pandemic-is-exposing-structural-racism-in-the-us%2F REACTIONS:
