June 28th, 2016 by WCBC Radio

Former U.S. Rep. Helen Delich Bentley is not going gentle into that good night.

Bentley, 92, issued a news release Monday insisting that "rumors of my imminent demise are greatly exaggerated."

The former Republican gubernatorial candidate, for whom the Port of Baltimore is named, was released from Greater Baltimore Medical Center in Towson last week and is receiving home hospice care.

But Bentley is not ready for burial quite yet. She said she's "feeling stronger every day."

"Dammit, I'm still right here," the statement quotes her. "I'm getting back up to speed. My appetite is back. Next comes my energy What else do you want?"

The statement says Bentley "wants to put to rest misperceptions" caused by a recent series of hospital stays.
