U.S. Congressman’s 17-Year-Old Daughter Died Early Morning at Home
Illinois Congressman Sean Casten’s 17-year-old daughter Gwen Casten died Monday morning, his office announced.
The U.S. representative’s office released a short statement that said the teen passed away.
“This morning, Congressman Casten’s beloved daughter, Gwen (17), passed away,” Casten’s office said. “The Casten family requests privacy, and we will be issuing no further comment during this heartbreaking time.”
Gwen died inside the family’s Downers Grove home, according to local police.
Downers Grove police were called to respond to a report of an “unresponsive” 17-year-old girl at a home on the block where Casten lives just before 7 a.m.
The girl was pronounced dead at the scene.
Gwen was slated to attend the University of Vermont. She starred in a digital political ad for her father that was released less than two weeks ago; in it, she blew out cake candles for an 18th birthday.
🚨 BIG NEWS: Sean just released a new digital ad!!
In Congress, Sean is working to enshrine a woman's right to make her own health care decisions, combat gun violence, & ban Members of Congress from trading stock.

A member of the Democratic Party, Sean Casten has been a strident advocate for getting vaccinated. The date of his daughter’s booster shot has yet to be disclosed.
Great news. My 16 y.o. daughter just got registered for hers in IL. Sign up and get vaccinated if you haven't already. https://t.co/HzwzcgdTQQ

Not hiring knuckleheads is my superpower.
"I've made a point of not hiring knuckleheads, and everybody on our staff got vaccinated…"
[Casten's] staffers were all eager to get vaccinated "because they don't like to be dead." https://t.co/4d75VmnFUi

If you're not vaccinated, get vaccinated.
If you can't get vaccinated, wear a mask.
If ANYONE in a position of power says anything to the contrary, they do not value your life. https://t.co/nPyPQ4xUvs

NH Congressman’s 15-Year-Old Nephew Died From Drowning and/or the Jab?
No matter one’s political views, the loss of a child is heartbreaking. My heart goes out to him and his family.
Save your compassion for someone deserving of it. Enemies deserve nothing, and this man is a enemy of us all.
While my heart goes out to them I am angry as hell that this has been pushed on us and is killing young people and Casten was one of the pushers. If he is honest he must feel awful about this but my guess is he is in denial.
I am so glad I am a, “Nuckephead!” This so called vaccine did not meet the definition of a vaccine. Congressman, I am 67 and still alive. You killed your daughter. Shame on you!
And how many others have also suffered or died because they took the jab based on this man’s recommendation?
She was injected and proud of it. Now she dies, no matters for me. Bigpharma is not making science or health, it’s making money and deaths.
I think it is obvious why she died. She took the poison. And died of a massive heart attack in her sleep. Anyone who took it is at high risk. There is no science nowadays. Just lies. 100% lies. And everyone is pretending they do not know why people are dying around them.
This aged well. That’s exactly how she died.
The government recommends a booster for children despite Fauci admittedly not having any evidence to support their decision. That’s no science. That’s conjecture. And we should not be making public policy on it!. And by the way it’s the time people wake up. The vaccine efficacy from the trial of Pfizzer they try to hidde, is only at 12 %. The natural immunity it’s the best real vaccine. The rest it’s only marketing for enrich the shareholders and the stakeholders of Big pharma. They are in business to make money, not to saving lifes. Danielle !
I just read an article where they are pushing boosters against Omicron. The justification? It raises your antibody levels. Antibodies against what? Do these antibodies protect you against Omicron? And might these antibodies damage you? No one asks. “Brawndo has the electrolytes that plants crave.”
People are to brainwash with the msm all financing by Pfizer for 2 years non stop, during the same period, Big tech they censore all the social and web medias who try to gave facts and thruth about the lies around the ves and the Plandemie. Plandemie= Event 201. More vaccinated people= more vaerz and deaths. It’s facts. Masks mandate it’s criminal because it took off your right to be fully inhaling. It harms you to reinhale your own verions. So it can be deadly for many people who are not in good health. Specially small children who need all… Read more »
Everyone knows there are no long term studies on this NEW vaccine. No good parent would allow their children to take this vaccine. This is ashame but politicians are a special kind of evil forcing others into getting these vaccines by destroying their lives, getting them fired etc. DOGS all of them involved in this travesty. I hope someday to hold them all accountable.
Just think how bad it would have been if she were not fully vaccinated. Thank god she was vaccinated.
Lucky I don’t listen to anyone, but myself. No shots for me…ever.
