“I don’t think they’re appropriate tactics, but it happens to everybody,” Biden said after being asked whether he felt it was appropriate for far-left activists to film themselves harassing Democrat Senator Kyrsten Sinema in the bathroom. Once the golden girl of the Democrat Party, Sen. Sinema has found herself at the receiving end of threats and harassment after blocking the Democrats’ $3.5 trillion socialist spending spree.

During a class Senator Sinema teaches at Arizona State University, several progressive activists disturbed her class with objections to her promised “no” vote on the ‘Build Back Better’ plan. The activists filmed themselves following Senator Sinema and her students in the classroom as well as the bathroom.
According to Arizona law, it is illegal to” knowingly photograph, videotape, film, digitally record or by any other means secretly view, with or without a device, another person without that person’s consent under either of the following circumstances: In a restroom, bathroom, locker room, bedroom or other location where the person has a reasonable expectation of privacy and the person is urinating, defecating, dressing, undressing, nude or involved in sexual intercourse or sexual contact.”
Senator Sinema released a statement that “In Arizona, we love the First Amendment,” but she called the harassment toward her “not a legitimate protest.” She said, “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.”

While on her way back to Washington DC to resume her work as a US Senator, Kyrsten Sinema was accosted on her flight by another activist. On Sinema’s flight, a DACA recipient named Karina went up to the senator to ask her if she would commit to the Democrat plan of a pathway to citizenship for illegal immigrants.
“Can you commit to that, senator?” Karina asked, later adding, “I don’t want to disturb you, but at the same time, I just want to know if I can get a commitment from you, senator.” Senator Sinema’s previous statement claims to have met with this activist group several times since being elected and promised to “continue engaging with Arizonans with diverse viewpoints.”
