Bathroom video activist may face charges in Sinema incident

The Arizona State University Police Department has recommended charges regarding an activist who recorded Arizona Democratic Sen. Kyrsten Sinema on its campus.

The Maricopa County Attorney’s Office, along with Sinema’s office, asked county prosecutors to charge four people involved in the events, according to report by the Arizona Mirror Thursday.

Sinema remained silent during the protest that took place following a class she taught at the university. The next day, the senator released a statement addressing the incident.

The activists targeted Sinema over her opposition to a Democrat spending bill of $3.5 trillion.

Many of the concerns shared by the activists involved in the incident focused on issues related to immigration, including a pathway to citizenship for immigrants already in America.

President Joe Biden criticized the action, but was also criticized himself for largely dismissing the issue as “part of the process.”

The activists involved may now see action taken against them in the form of charges in response to going too far in activist efforts against a leader in the party they support.
