Speaker Nancy Pelosi announced Monday that Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg will lie in state in National Statuary Hall in the U.S. Capitol. She will be the first woman to ever do so. She will also lie in repose at the Supreme Court, it was announced by the court.
Pelosi said the ceremony for Ginsburg will be held Friday, Sept. 25. It will be by invitation only, because of the coronavirus. Rosa Parks lay in honor at the U.S. Capitol, a distinction extended to private citizens, as opposed to government officials like Ginsburg. Ginsburg will also be the first Jewish person to lie in state at the U.S. Capitol. For reference, thirty-three people have lain in state at the Captol, all men. It is an honor typically extended to presidents, congressmen or military leaders. The most recent to lie in state were Democrats Rep. Elijah Cummings and John Lewis both civil rights leaders, in 2019 and 2020 respectively.

cut he rin half. she can lie in state at both places at the same time.
That’s our Notorious RBG: Even in death she is breaking glass ceilings...
Nothing for the first woman on SCOTUS...Sandra Day.
She was okay with butchering babies in the womb.
Nancy lies all the time and everywhere.
Glad to read this because it means that The Clintdog is weeping
O’Connor is still alive.
my bad...should have checked.
The democrats really like dragging a dead body all over. Pelosi has made laying in State an all too common thing. The honor is tarnished the more common it becomes.
I was thinking the same thing then read something O’Connor has not kicked the bucket yet.
They didnt do the same for Sandra Day?
What gives? Shes was even a pro-abortionist?
So I guess Ginsberg wasnt Jewish? The Jewish people believe in burying a person as soon as possible after death.
Not the first. Hillary used to lie all the time at the US Capitol.
When I read the article, it seems contradictory.
It says shes the first woman to lie in State at the Capital, then states Rosa Parks also laid in State there, but then reads 33 men have been laid in State there, but no woman.
So either Rosa Parks was there or she wasn’t.
Hillary was always in a lying state at the capitol.
And Bill was lying with his intern.
Paul Wellstone II.
Or as a few Minnesotans called it...”Tombstone”
So RBG is Jewish and is not to be embalmed... Does anyone see a problem with this? Will there be lots of incense ... flowers ... anything?
You have to look in the box. Until you look, she is in superposition, both there and not.
