Sen. Patrick Leahy recalls fondest memories with RBG
WASHINGTON D.C. (WCAX) - The death of Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg has sparked a debate about what’s next.
Almost immediately after her death was announced Friday, Republicans and Democrats were staking their positions on what happens next and collecting lots of campaign donations for the struggle ahead.
Republicans want to vote on nomination for her replacement, while Demoracts want to wait until after the election.
Our Washington correspondent Kyle Midura sat down with Vermont Sen. Patrick Leahy to talk about his fondest memories with RBG.
“I admired Justice Ginsburg. I remember a couple times we would be at Kennedy Center events, and we were supposed to be quiet. There would be something going on stage and she would just make a little comment, course we’re all supposed to be quiet, and then she would just give me a look and whisper something. I would break double over trying to stop from laughing and not disturb the rest and she would just say, ‘O did I say that’," said Sen. Leahy.
His message to his fellow senators is to “keep your word.”
