Cummings remembered as a mentor to many in Baltimore

BALTIMORE (AP) — Many faith leaders, activists and politicians in Baltimore have one thing in common: They were mentored by Rep. Elijah Cummings.

The congressman, who died Thursday at 68, inspired and advised others, sharing his political wisdom.

Among those who consulted the Baltimore Democrat was Marilyn Mosby, who as the top prosecutor in the city brought charges in 2015 against six police officers in the death of Freddie Gray, a black man who suffered a neck injury in the back of a police van.

Mosby says: “He was there with me. He said he believed in me.”
