Rockefeller Dispells Rumors of his Passing

Logan Banner - U.S. Senator Jay Rockefeller successfully dispelled rumors of his passing Friday, February 28, during a visit to Christ Church United Methodist in downtown Charleston. Read

The senator's pre-arranged meeting at the church was designed to reflect on Rockefeller's 50 years "of support for West Virginia families."

When the senior Democrat senator, who is retiring at the end of his current term, walked into the room using a crutch, he chucked at reports earlier in the day that he was "missing." Internet reports and "tweets" actually announced that the senator had passed away and his alleged death was the subject of constant rumors Friday morning at the statehouse.
