Executive Constantine issued the following statement on the passing of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg:
“For nearly three decades, America benefitted from the wisdom and moral guidance of a woman whose life of service was dedicated to making real a central ideal our nation: justice.
“Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s era on the Supreme Court was itself historic, and her decisions – and of course, her dissents – helped affirm the equal rights of women and, indeed, of every American.
“Her dedication to fighting for the rights of all did not begin with her appointment to the high court, nor will her impact on our shared history end with her passing today. Her service, her dedication to the law, and her life story is quintessentially American.
“It would be the height of hypocrisy – and an immense disservice to the court, the law, and our democracy – to ignore her final wishes and allow this morally bankrupt President and Senate majority to rush through a replacement for this irreplaceable patriot before the voters chart our nation’s course just six weeks from now.”
