Former Senator Arlen Specter, 82, Dead

Arlen Specter, the sometimes controversial, and seemingly always embattled, former Senator from Pennsylvania, has died this morning in his P.A. home following his battle with non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma.

While not his first battle with the disease, he had both beaten it before as well as recovering from a heart bypass surgery, but at 82 years of age, he just couldn’t hold on any longer. More details as they emerge.
