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.
He was bullied then folded!

Shame on you, Sen Flake! He was bullied by the hateful democrats and is contributing to smear tactics all over our country. And for nothing! The democrats will never vote for this nominee anyway. This will only get worse for conservatives if you allow these tactics to succeed!

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.
