Rep. Kyrsten Sinema, first Congressperson to officially describe her religion as “none,” is sworn in not on the Bible, but on the document she’s actually supposed to be protecting and upholding—the Constitution.
[Fun fact: James Madison remains the only president to take his oath of office on a book of laws, rather than the Bible.]
Also, she is the first openly bisexual member of Congress!
She’s also dispelling stereotypes about Creatively-Spelled Americans!
This is so awesome.
I bet Boehner’s hand got all hot and tingly when he picked up that book.
