According to his website, Breitbart -- the political journalist who broke the Anthony Weiner penis pic story -- died "unexpectedly from natural causes" shortly after midnight this morning in L.A.

A statement on Breitbart reads, "We have lost a husband, a father, a son, a brother, a dear friend, a patriot and a happy warrior."

Nobody can be 100% sure Andrew Breitbart is actually dead until we see his original, long-form death certificate.

L.A Coroner, don't bungle this one like the score of previous episodes. It takes small mistakes to completely ruin the results. Previous cases only proved that they are reliably wrong, when it comes to famous personalities. Do they have a clue what to look for?

What slimeballs - he;s dead, and you choose to inject your imaginings. There's PLENTY of leftists in music & Hollywood that drugged themselves to death - Breitbart had health issues & had nothing to do with drugs.
Verbally hypocritical liberals - Love & Tolerance? Garbage.
