Pro-amnesty activists followed Sen. Kyrsten Sinema into a ladies’ room at Arizona State University over the weekend to demand that she support fellow Democrats’ $3.5 trillion social spending bill.
Video of the intruders lecturing Sinema, D-Ariz., from outside a closed stall door Sunday—while other women went about their personal business—quickly went viral.
“Yesterday’s behavior was not legitimate protest,” Sinema said in a public statement. “It is unacceptable for activist organizations to instruct their members to jeopardize themselves by engaging in unlawful activities such as gaining entry to closed university buildings, disrupting learning environments, and filming students in a restroom.”
The Constitution grants all Americans the right to peacefully protest and petition the government, but doing so inside a restroom and on camera leaves many raising concerns over lawmakers’ privacy.
After saying the ambush wasn’t appropriate, President Joe Biden seemed to excuse it in answering a reporter’s question Monday.
“I don’t think they’re appropriate tactics, but it happens to everybody,” Biden said. “The only people it doesn’t happen to are people who have Secret Service standing around them. So it’s part of the process.”
On today’s edition of the “Problematic Women” podcast, we’ve got what you need to know about Sinema’s interaction with the protesters as well as the status of the $3.5 trillion spending bill backed by Biden and most other congressional Democrats.
