Protesters on Monday wrote deceased Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s “dying wish” in chalk in front of Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell’s Washington, D.C., house.

The message came amid wider criticism of McConnell’s leadership in the Senate and was intended to make him reconsider transgressing Ginsburg’s wish, which, as related to NPR by her granddaughter Clara Spera, was that “I will not be replaced until a new president is installed.”

“It is not only the wrong thing to do, it is absolutely immoral, and it flies in the face of what this wonderful woman, whose picture is right there, Ruth Bader Ginsburg, requested,” activist Medea Benjamin told the Washington Examiner.
