When the group—which included a woman who identified herself as a state representative—approached Perdue, he warned the activists, “Don’t touch me,” before collegially ducking into a men’s restroom rather than risk the interaction continuing further. Charming!

Putting pressure on politicians—to their faces—works. I’ve reached out to CPD for more information about the action (I’ll update this post if and when they respond) but Ana María Archila, the group’s co-executive director, was one of the two women who cornered Sen. Jeff Flake before the Senate Judiciary Committee’s vote last week and captured the viral video of the incident. Flake, for his part, looked just as uncomfortable as every Senate Republican should be made to feel as they prepare to waltz through this FBI investigation en route to confirming Kavanaugh—so it’s a balm to see activists spreading the love around.
