Hero of the day to the left is Ms. Ana Maria Archila who, together with Ms. Maria Gallagher, staged an impromptu protest in an elevator yesterday, cornering Republican Senator Jeff Flake and berating him for planning to back Judge Brett Kavanaugh’s nomination to the supreme court.

The 39-year-old from Queens said that she was assaulted at the age of five: “I wanted Flake to feel my rage.”

“I believe Judge Kavanaugh is dangerous for women.”

“If it was just my story and Maria’s story it would not have made a difference. It was the fact that it was thousands of women’s stories,” Ms. Archila, interviewed by many left-wing outlets like the BBC and the Guardian, explained on Saturday.

The co-director at the Center for Popular Democracy (CPD), a not-for-profit advocacy group that campaigns for an “inclusive, equitable society” explained that “I did it in solidarity with Dr. Ford. All the emotions I have felt over the last weeks came pouring out. It was Dr. Ford’s story that allowed me to tell this secret to my parents. I now have to do the work of how my parents [and I] process this experience, and I don’t know how this is going to go.”

She stated that immediately after she read on social media that Mr. Flake would back the vote for Mr. Kavanaugh, she was determined to stop him. According to Ms. Archila, when she and her colleague Ms. Gallagher stopped the Arizona Senator, it appeared that he wanted “to be anywhere else but in that elevator”.

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-lang="en"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">Ana Maria Archila, protester who confronted Sen. Jeff Flake: &quot;We weren&#39;t really willing to let him go without actually looking at us and forcing him to listen to our stories and making him understand the gravity of the message he was sending to the country.&quot; <a href="https://t.co/958sugy0d2">pic.twitter.com/958sugy0d2</a></p>&mdash; ABC News (@ABC) <a href="https://twitter.com/ABC/status/1045744846583947265?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">September 28, 2018</a></blockquote>

“Immediately after he came out of his office, we – in an outpouring of frustration and rage and sadness and anger – stopped him, confronted him and forced him to listen to our stories and … questions.

The rest is history. Mr. Flake returned to the hearing and asked his colleague to start an FBI investigation before the Senate could vote on accepting Mr. Kavanaugh, possibly pushing the process on for weeks to come.

The Democrats hailed it as a (temporary) win.

US Senator Joe Manchin (Democrat from West-Virginia), who is up for a tough election in November, weighed in on the call from Republican Senator Flake. He stated: "I applaud Senator Jeff Flake's decision to rise above the partisan circus on display during this entire process. I took courage to take a stand and call for a one-week FBI investigation to get to the bottom of the allegations against Judge Kavanaugh."

"This has been a partisan and divisive process. The American people have been pulled apart by this entire spectacle and we need to take time to address these claims independently so that our country can have confidence in the outcome of this vote. It is what is right and fair for Dr. Ford, Judge Kavanaugh, and the American people."

Jeff FLAKE did it for attention. He is washed up and he is looKing for attention like John McCain received when he died. That's all nothing more. This article is incorrect.
