This might qualify as the gross story of the day, as far as politics go.
As we wrote on Saturday, progressive activists aren’t having it with Democrat senators like West Virginia’s Joe Manchin and Arizona’s Kyrsten Sinema refusing to go along to get along on their massive spending addiction, currently in the form of Joe Biden’s reconciliation bill, with a price tag of $3.5 trillion (or potentially more).
What that’s led to recently is blatant, in your face bullying against both senators by the left’s minions. Literally, in Manchin’s case, where he lives.
Late last week, Sen. Manchin was harassed by loud protesters who thought it was acceptable to use kayaks to reach him at his private home in D.C. — which happens to be a houseboat. As you can see in the video (linked above), Manchin was very polite to the alleged WV constituents, asking them to set up an appointment to meet and speak with him about the outrageous spending bill and the bipartisan bill that’s been held hostage by far-leftists in the Democrat Party.
Now, on the heels of her slapdown of Democratic leaders on Saturday, as my colleague Nick Arama reported, Arizona senior Senator Kyrsten Sinema is getting harassed at home (figuratively), too.
Fox News reported that far-left activists showed up at a fundraising event she attended in Central Phoenix Saturday night.
Sen. Kyrsten Sinema, D-Ariz., sidestepped stalled infrastructure talks in Washington, D.C., to see her foot doctor and host a high-priced fundraiser at a pricey Phoenix resort Saturday.
“We’re here to find our senator,” Ruth Shea, a protester, told a station photographer. “Sen. Sinema is a clown of Arizona who’s in the Royal Palms, meeting with fundraiser people, when she’s supposed to be back in D.C., voting on bills, to make America better.”
A small group gathered in front of the Royal Palms Resort in central Phoenix. They want the senator to support President Joe Biden’s big spending bill.
And it’s these or similar radical leftists who have no problem following a woman into a public restroom (presumably on the ASU campus) and shouting at her. Watch:

And what was so urgent that it couldn’t wait for a more appropriate time?

Who or what is LUCHA Arizona, which so proudly shared the gross video? Living United for Change in Arizona is described on its website as:
….an organization led by changemakers fighting for social, racial, and economic transformation. We are committed to human dignity, inclusion, equity, and collective growth. We work to reclaim our shared power alongside our families and community.
Anyway, you have to ask: Why would activists think this is okay? Maybe because Democrats who represent them (like this Arizona state senator) are gung-ho about the tactic:
Pro tip for politicians. A good way to not get harassed in restrooms by your constituents is to be available to meet and hear them out on the issues they are passionate about using normal channels.

Fox News Political Editor Cam Cawthrone speaks for all of us. So gross!
*confronting Sinema in bathroom
It’s bad enough this group thought following Sinema into the bathroom would help their cause, but they recorded it AND posted it on their Twitter account. https://t.co/R97dmpLABj
