Democrats are having trouble passing their massive spending bill. Because the Senate is evenly split, Democrats need every single vote.
Two Democrats are holding out. One of them is Kyrsten Sinema of Arizona.
Because she is not doing the bidding of her party, left wing activists are targeting her for harassment. Some of them even stalked and followed her into a bathroom this weekend.
FOX News reports:
Sinema confronted by immigration activists in a bathroom
Sen. Kyrsten Sinema was confronted by immigration activists who followed the senator from the classroom where she teaches at Arizona State University to the bathroom while demanding the Arizona Democrat take action on a “pathway to citizenship.”
“We knocked on doors for you to get you elected. Just how we got you elected, we can get you out of office if you don’t support what you promised us,” one of the activists said to Sinema in the video that was recorded with a phone.
The activists first confronted Sinema at her ASU classroom, then followed her down the hall as the senator went into the bathroom and shut the door of a stall. Nevertheless, the activists continued to voice their demands from inside the bathroom, including a demand that she support President Biden’s “Build Back Better” agenda and legislation that would provide a pathway to citizenship for illegal migrants.

Some people on the left are actually defending this behavior.
Here’s Kirsten Powers of CNN:
Which is worse: your grandparents being deported or being followed into a bathroom (bc you refused to stop and listen) by ppl desperate for your help? This is not a trick question.

Joe Biden claimed this happens to everyone.

Can you imagine if conservative activists did this to AOC? It’d be front page news.
