Conservative Blogger Andrew Breitbart Dies at Age 43
INSIDE EDITION reports on the sudden passing of controversial conservative blogger Andrew Breitbart, best-known for breaking the Anthony Weiner scandal.
Mystery is swirling around the sudden death of controversial conservative blogger and TV personality Andrew Breitbart.
Breitbart was only 43 when he dropped dead just after midnight on Thursday.
Republican presidential contender Rick Santorum was stunned when told of Breitbart's death.
"I'm crestfallen. I mean that is horrible," Santorum told reporters.
Breitbart's father in-law, former game show host, Orson Bean, said Breitbart was walking near his house in Los Angeles when he collapsed. He'd reportedly had heart problems in the past.
Breitbart's website says he died "Unexpectedly from natural causes."
But Rosie O'Donnell tweeted: "it's quite odd, no? What is 'natural causes' for a 43-yr-old man?"
There was an animated exchange in what is thought to be his last TV appearance just a couple of weeks ago. Durring the appearance on Current TV's The Young Turks, he was discussing the Occupy Wall Street movement, when he joked about his blood pressure.
"Sorry if my blood pressure is a tad high," said Breitbart.
Breitbart made his name when he broke the Anthony Weiner photo sexting scandal.
