Rep. Louise M. Slaughter was a Rochester-area Democrat who represented parts of Buffalo for a decade. She fought for issues ranging from government ethics to health care.
Her office revealed earlier this week that she had suffered a head injury after a fall, and had been hospitalized with a concussion.
