Sen. Kyrsten Sinema pushed back on protestors who harassed her at Arizona State University Sunday over her refusal to support the Biden administration’s massive infrastructure agenda.
Sinema and West Virginia Sen. Joe Manchin are calling for a smaller bill than Biden’s $3.5 trillion plan.
A video posted to Twitter on Sunday by social justice group Living United for Change in Arizona (LUCHA) shows activists waiting outside a classroom where Sinema was delivering a lecture.
Activists begin speaking to Sinema as she exits the classroom and enters a restroom.
Over the sounds of toilets flushing, one of the protestors can be heard yelling at Sinema from the entrance to the bathroom.
“We need to hold you accountable to what you told us, what you promised us that you were going to pass when we knocked on doors for you,” the protestor says in the footage. “It’s not right.”
A second video posted to Twitter shows the slogan-chanting protestors follow Sinema as she walks back into her classroom.
“In the 19 years I have been teaching at ASU, I have been committed to creating a safe and intellectually challenging environment for my students,” Sinema said in a statement Monday. “Yesterday, that environment was breached. My students were unfairly and unlawfully victimized. This is wholly inappropriate.”
As of Monday morning, none of Sinema’s Democrat colleagues have condemned the harassment.
