Liberal activists plan on 'bird-dogging' Kyrsten Sinema at Boston Marathon

Activists have accosted Sen. Kyrsten Sinema, us-regions., at an airport and on her way to the bathroom. They also plan to follow her at the Boston Marathon Monday, pressuring her to support President Biden’s $3.5 trillion reconciliation bill, the Build Back Better Act.

Activists from the Green New Deal Network, a coalition of 15 organizations, plan on “bird-dogging” Sinema during the marathon, the organization announced in a press release, according to The Boston Globe. 

Last week, video emerged showing Green New Deal Network Chief of Staff Kunoor Ojha accosting Sinema at Reagan National Airport in Washington, D.C., pressuring her to support the Build Back Better Act.

Sinema has expressed her opposition to the Build Back Better Bill, which Democrats have often paired with a $1 trillion bipartisan infrastructure bill with senate support. Sinema and her colleague, Sen. Joe Manchin, D-W.Va., have balked at the $3.5 trillion sticker price, which The Wall Street Journal editorial board has insisted is a low estimate of the bill’s true cost of $5 trillion. Biden and his advisors, meanwhile, have insisted that the cost is “zero” because they pledge to pay for the $3.5 trillion with tax increases on the wealthy and corporations.

Biden addressed the confrontations against the senators last week, noting that neither senator has Secret Service protection.

“I don’t think they’re appropriate tactics, but it happens to everybody,” Biden said.

“The only people it doesn’t happen to are the people who have Secret Service standing around them,” Biden added. “So, it’s part of the process.”

The Green New Deal Network did not immediately respond to Fox News’ request for comment.
