Kirk Pays Tribute to Staffer Lisa Radogno

Lisa Radogno, executive assistant and scheduler to Sen. Mark S. Kirk, R-Ill., died Wednesday of a massive pulmonary embolism that may have resulted from complications following a car accident earlier this year. She was 31  years old.

In an emotional speech on the Senate floor Thursday, Kirk called her "one of the brightest lights of our DC office" and "somebody that I will miss with every fiber of my being."
