A senior strategist at the left-wing American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) on Thursday responded to a floor speech by Sen. Kyrsten Sinema, D-Ariz., encouraging Democrats to keep targeting her.
Sarah Michelsen, an ACLU senior campaign strategist and former state director of Sen. Bernie Sanders’ failed presidential campaign in 2020, took to Twitter after Sinema’s emotional floor speech saying she will not vote to weaken the Senate’s 60-vote filibuster in order to help Democrats pass voting rights.
Sinema “sounds like she’s going to cry” Michelsen said, encouraging Democrats to “keep going” with the attacks because they are “breaking her.”
After this piece was published, Michelsen made her Twitter account private and deleted her title and employer from her Twitter bio.
