E-mails claiming Sen. Lautenberg is dead are false
U.S. Sen. Frank Lautenberg is dispelling rumors that he has died this week.
Recently an Internet hoax claimed that Lautenberg had died. However, Lautenburg is still very much alive.
The fake e-mails came about one week after the senator made a statement that he is cancer free.
Similar e-mails popped up regarding the deaths of other state senators. All of these e-mails were hoaxes. Investigators say it is still unclear who was sending the e-mails out.
