Ruth Bader Ginsburg Calls Lindsey Graham One of the ‘Women of the Senate’ (The Washington Free Beacon)
Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg on Monday referred to Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham as one of the "women of the Senate" while delivering remarks in Washington after being honored with Allegheny College's Prize for Civility in Public Life.
Ginsburg, who was being honored with the late Justice Antonin Scalia, reflected on her 1993 confirmation hearing, which she said was "civil."
"I thought back to the 1993 confirmation of my nomination to the court," Ginsburg said. "The hearing was altogether civil. The vote was 96 to 3. For Justice Scalia, the vote was unanimous."
