Andrew Breitbart died suddenly at age 43, of “heart failure” and with no significant amount of alcohol in his system as had been originally speculated. Earlier that evening he had been observed apparently happy, lively, and engaged in high energy political discussion at a bar near his home. He apparently had a sudden collapse while walking home from that bar only minutes later. He had been talking for weeks of releasing game changing, damning video footage from Presbo’s college days that would irrevocably alter the course of the 2012 election. Instead we see some old video of a young Presbo doing some rambling, disjointed speechifying at a college rally. Not damning. Not game-changing. Not even particularly interesting. Breitbart is the guy that outed Anthony Weiner, Shirley Sherrod, and Acorn and who had a long and successful career in investigative journalism and who had a pretty good idea of what sort of info would be “game-changing”.
Now 2 months later, veteran LA county coroner Michael Cormier, died suddenly of arsenic poisoning at his home in LA on the day that Breitbart’s autopsy report results were released by the LA County Coroner’s office. City officials were quick to point out that Mr. Cormier did not actually work on Breitbart’s autopsy. But these were the same officials that rushed out a report that Breitbart had died of “natural causes” before any examination had actually taken place.
