Harlem’s Rep. Espaillat Remembers The Notorious Ruth Bader Ginsburg

Representative Adriano Espaillat released the following statement regarding the passing of Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg:

“I am deeply saddened to learn of the loss of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg. She was an incredible pioneer as an attorney, judge, and justice and she lent a voice to the court that represented the best of the American people. Her fierce advocacy from the bench for equal rights will be sorely missed, and whoever succeeds her will have ginormous shoes to fill,” said Harlem Rep. Espaillat.

“As for the process to fill the vacancy created by Justice Ginsburg’s passing, I call on Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell to delay consideration of any nominee until the people have spoken in November. To do anything else would undermine the legitimacy of the Supreme Court.

“I pray for Justice Ginsburg’s family in this time of sadness and loss and hope they can take solace in the notorious reputation and record of service their beloved “Kiki” will leave behind.”
