NO GOOD DEED: Democrats Protest Flake After He Gave Them What They Wanted

Sen. Jeff Flake (R-AZ), the Senate Judiciary Committee member who struck a deal with Democrats to allow the FBI to conduct a one-week investigation of new allegations made against Supreme Court nominee Judge Brett Kavanaugh, will encounter mobs of protesters at speeches he plans to deliver in New England on Monday.

The senator is scheduled to speak at Boston’s City Hall Plaza for the Forbes Under 30 Summit, alongside Ohio Gov. John Kasich. Later Monday, Flake is due to speak at St. Anselm College in Manchester, New Hampshire.

But despite being the one Republican to broker a deal with Democrats to deliver a one-week investigation intended to provide more details about various sexual assault allegations made against Kavanaugh, Flake will still face protesters during his visit. Their goal is to convince Flake to vote against Kavanaugh’s nomination, regardless of what the FBI finds this week.

Among the protesters will be Boston Mayor Marty Walsh:

Mayor Martin J. Walsh, who will join protesters at the Flake event, said he is urging senators across the country to give voice to survivors and reject Kavanaugh.

“This moment in time will mark how we, as a country, respond to the call for action from women and individuals who have bravely spoken out about sexual assault,” said Walsh. “We believe survivors and we want to make their voices heard, from Boston to Washington, and all across America.”

According to a Facebook group organizing the protest, 700 people indicated they planned to attend and another 3,100 said they were “interested in attending,” as of Sunday afternoon.

The FBI is supposed to deliver an updated report on Kavanaugh by Friday, and a full Senate vote is expected shortly thereafter.
