Statement From U.S. Rep. Bobby L. Rush On The Retirement Of Supreme Court Justice Sandra Day OConnor
Washington D.C. ---- (July 1, 2005) - It is with great admiration that I thank Supreme Court Justice Sandra Day OConnor for her many years of service and willingness to weigh in on key issues without prejudice. This country has benefited greatly by her decision to let what is right, guide her decisions rather than what is popular or partisan. As the first woman to serve on the Supreme Court, her legacy has earned its place in history. I wish her well in retirement, and may her actions serve as an example for her peers and future lawmakers.<?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" />
I sincerely hope that President Bush and my congressional colleagues will select a replacement with the same fortitude and vision for equality and justice.
