Senator Jeff Flake faces emotional confrontation from survivors over his Kavanaugh vote

TwitterFacebook

On Friday morning, Senator Jeff Flake finally announced that he’d vote to confirm Judge Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court.

The Republican from Arizona was previously undecided and was seen as one of the key deciding votes. His last minute decision was particularly heartbreaking for a group of sexual assault survivors gathered near his office, who proceeded to confront him in the Senate elevator and reveal their own stories of abuse.

Women confront Sen. Jeff Flake after he says he’ll vote yes to Kavanuagh: “That’s what you’re telling all women in America, that they don’t matter. They should just keep it to themselves because if they have told the truth you’re just going to help that man to power anyway.” pic.twitter.com/T7fSpyT69E
