Capitol's 'Jesus Lady' Falls On Tough Times
The owner of said-Jesus, Rita Warren, now faces eviction from her Virginia apartment, Roll Call's Heard On the Hill reports.
Warren, 83, is a "pro-prayer-in-schools, pro-First Amendment activist," Catalini reported:
To staffers, lawmakers, and frequent visitors, Warren's face is a familiar one. She's been bringing the statue to the Capitol for three decades, Monday through Friday at first. Now, just two days a week. Construction at the Capitol Visitors Center had limited her to visiting one day a week. She's back now, though, to her twice-weekly pilgrimage.
No word yet on whether Warren and Jesus will be back at the Capitol, despite the eviction.
