Conflicting reports over ailing congresswoman

UPDATE: CNN reports that Tubbs Jones passed away this evening. More here.

Soon after print and television reports that Ohio Rep. Stephanie Tubbs Jones died today in an Ohio hospital after suffering an aneurysm, a news conference just concluded in which a spokesman said she was in critical condition, but still alive.

Tubbs Jones chairs the House ethics committee and is a Democratic superdelegate who was expected to attend that Democratic Convention in Denver. She was found yesterday unconscious behind the wheel of her car.

CNN is reporting that a Congressional staff member informed lawmakers that Tubbs Jones had died earlier today.
