Sen. Jeff Flake (R-Ariz.) was blasted by social media users who said he was bullied into delaying the floor vote for Brett Kavanaugh’s Supreme Court nomination.

Right before the vote, Flake was harassed by protestors who claimed the senator was “anti-woman” as he was heading into an elevator.

Flake then voted in favor of moving Kavanaugh’s nomination for a full Senate vote in exchange for delaying the vote while a “limited scope” FBI investigation takes place, which the senator claimed would only take a week.

Ironically, the protestors who confronted Flake would presumably never vote for him during a Senate race.

Kavanaugh did clear a hurdle with his nomination leaving the Senate Judiciary Committee to proceed for a full Senate vote.
