Socialist U.S. Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) is refusing to condemn far-left illegal alien activists who stalked Sen. Kyrsten Sinema (D-AZ) into a bathroom where they recorded and berated her. The same activists then stalked Sinema onto a plane and harassed her.
The Daily Wire reports:
“Sanders wanted the statement to urge Sinema to drop her opposition to prescription drug reform, as well as Biden’s $3.5 trillion” social spending bill, Axios reported. “An email exchange between Senate Democratic leadership aides, obtained by Axios, reveals Sanders withheld his name from a joint statement declaring protesters who followed Sinema into a bathroom — and filmed her while using the restroom — as ‘plainly inappropriate and unacceptable.’”
Sanders’ communications director Mike Casca indicated that the senator did not approve of the statement and responded to an aide for another senator who organized the statement, writing: “Sanders will not be signing, so please cut ‘Senate Democratic Leadership Team’ from headline.”
The report said that “Sinema’s orbit” has expressed frustration that her colleagues have not stood up for her. Democrat President Joe Biden responded to the incident by saying in part that it “happens to everybody” and that it’s “part of the process.”
Many Republicans have come to Sinema’s defense, including Utah’s Mike Lee, Texas’ Ted Cruz, Kentucky’s Rand Paul, among others.
Casey Mattox, an attorney, wrote on Twitter regarding Sanders, “Reminder that Sinema (and Manchin) continuing to caucus with Democrats is why Bernie Sanders is the Chair of the Senate Budget Committee instead of the ranking member.”
