#GAReads | Louise Slaughter Set House Rules, and Played by Her Own
Ms. Slaughter did not hold much back from either a personal or a political standpoint. Her death last week at 88 after a fall at her home in Washington cost Congress one of its unique personalities — a rare lawmaker who was respected, admired and held in great affection by members of both parties even as she served in one of the most partisan positions in the House.
Known universally to her colleagues simply as Louise, Ms. Slaughter was a remarkable figure in many ways.
