Anti-Kavanaugh protesters were all over Capitol Hill for weeks before he was confirmed to the Supreme Court, walking around the halls, being loud, and even confronting senators in office buildings. You name it, they did it.
One of the protesters who participated in these events was Alethea Torrellas Shapiro, who spent the majority of her time trying to harass senators on the hill for quite some time, using school aged children to help her do so.
Shapiro is an activist who calls extremist feminist activist Linda Sarsour her hero and regularly goes on profanity-laced tirades against GOP senators like Chuck Grassley.
After Kavanaugh’s confirmation, Shapiro wrote a public post on Facebook describing how she intended to use her four young children to shame “these horrible atrocious men” in the Senate “now that they confirmed Kavanaugh.” She writes:Trending:
Tomorrow I plan on birddogging in the Senate hallways and basement with all 4 of my kids (my daughters are 12, 10 and my boys are 5, 3). I went these horrible atrocious men to see the faces of the future that they are ruining and to know the tremendous pain women and men are feeling now that they confirmed Kavanaugh. So if you have 1-2 lines for me to tell them, or a message what should I say??? I need help! I also want to address their Kavanaugh confirmation so what do I say…
One of the senators that Shapiro confronted was Sen. Bill Cassidy of Louisiana. Cassidy has earned a reputation as a cowboy of sorts for throwing the arguments of protesters back in their faces instead of shying away from them.
Shapiro managed to catch up with Cassidy as he was walking briskly toward the Senate office building, asking him if he would “please apologize to my children for ruining their futures?”
His response left her stunned.
The senator turned to the kids, removed his earbuds and said calmly, “Hey, guess what? I know your parents are using you as tools … ”
“No, we’re not using them as tools! We’re not using them as tools!” Shapiro interrupted.
Cassidy concluded, “…But in the future, if somebody makes an allegation against you, and there’s no proof for it, you will be OK. Thank you,” before walking off.
