The conservative blogger died “unexpectedly from natural causes" shortly after midnight in Los Angeles, read a note posted on the website breitbart.tv. Breitbart, a conservative blogger and pundit, was the first person to post the notorious photos from Weiner’s Twitter feed on his website BigGovernment.com.
In June 2011 he confronted Weiner at a heated press conference in Midtown, where he accused the then-congressman of undermining his integrity when he claimed the photo wasn't real.
“With a terrible feeling of pain and loss we announce the passing of Andrew Breitbart,” the note on Breitbart's website continued.
“We have lost a husband, a father, a son, a brother, a dear friend, a patriot and a happy warrior,” the note continues. “Andrew lived boldly, so that we more timid souls would dare to live freely and fully, and fight for the fragile liberty he showed us how to love.”
The note also quotes a new conclusion he recently wrote for his book, "Righteous Indignation."
“I love my job. I love fighting for what I believe in. I love having fun while doing it. I love reporting stories that the Complex refuses to report. I love fighting back, I love finding allies, and—famously—I enjoy making enemies,” he wrote.
Breitbart was 43, according to ABC News.
