The office of California Senator Dianne Feinstein denied a rumor Monday morning that the senator had died.

That came after several calls from media trying to confirm that she had died.

It apparently started when a fake email began circulating that said the senator had died of cancer at her San Francisco home.

It was all a hoax. Senator Feinstein is alive and well.
