I'm very proud for the Judiciary Committee that before he testified he said to me, 'Madame Speaker do you think that I can tell George's daughter that his name will always be remember because you'll name the bill for him?' And I said, 'well I'll recommend that to the Judiciary Committee and to the Congressional Black Caucus, who have shaped the bill," she explained.
"But I only will do that if you tell me that this legislation is worthy of George Kirby's name, and he said it is," Pelosi added, smiling. "And so we're very proud, we've very proud to carry that."
She wasn't the only Democratic leader who bungled Floyd's name either. Earlier in the week, Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) referred to him as "Floyd Taylor," and "George Taylor," before finding his footing.
