Police are recommending charges for four people who followed Sen. Kyrsten Sinema (D-Ariz.) into a bathroom on an Arizona college campus earlier this month to demand her support of the Democrats’ reconciliation bill, reports The Hill. Police from Arizona State University, where Sinema teaches, are recommending that four people involved in the incident receive misdemeanor charges related to disruption of an educational institution and disorderly conduct.

Earlier this month, activists from Living United for Change in Arizona (LUCHA) followed the senator into a campus bathroom telling her: “Just like we got you elected, we can get you out of office if you don’t support what you promised us,” according to a video of the incident. Sinema rebuked the demonstration afterward, saying in a statement the behavior “was not legitimate protest.”
