"Bunning misspells Justice Ginsburg’s name in his apology statement."

Over the weekend, Sen. Jim Bunning (R-KY) predicted that Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg would be dead within “nine months” from pancreatic cancer. First Read reports that Bunning has now put out a statement apologizing for the remarks, although his office misspells the Justice’s name:

I apologize if my comments offended Justice Ginsberg,” Bunning said. “That certainly was not my intent. It is great to see her back at the Supreme Court today and I hope she recovers quickly. My thoughts and prayers are with her and her family.”
