A strident anti-Kavanaugh protester named Alethea Torrellas Shapiro, apparently accompanied by two of her children, accosted Sen. Bill Cassidy of Louisiana, barking at him, “Senator Cassidy, can you please apologize to my children for ruining their futures?”
She wasn’t prepared for his response.
Cassidy stopped, removed his earbuds, looked at the children, and replied, “Hey, guess what? I know your parents are using you as tools —”
Shapiro interjected, “No, we’re not using them as tools! We’re not using them as tools!”
“But in the future, if somebody makes an allegation against you, and there’s no proof for it, you will be OK. Thank you,” Cassidy said, and then just walked away.
At the end of the video, Shapiro could be heard yelling after the lawmaker.
“Shame on you for not believing women and for ruining my daughters’ lives,” she shouted.
Wow. I love the new GOP with backbone. The leftists don’t know how to handle someone that doesn’t just fold and give in to their stupidity. https://t.co/xGN4gDM7fx

Bizpac Review notes,
The mother had been bringing her children to Capitol Hill to protest for days, according to her social media posts which have apparently been taken down. The Daily Caller caught Shapiro’s Facebook post in response to Justice Brett Kavanuagh’s confirmation, describing how she planned to use her kids to shame “these horrible atrocious men” in the Senate.
ther posts by Shapiro, also deleted, show she had been attempting to harass senators and Kavanaugh for days, always with her children in tow.

“Shapiro is an activist who calls extremist feminist activist Linda Sarsour her hero and regularly goes on profanity-laced tirades against GOP senators like Chuck Grassley,” The Daily Caller reported.
Cassidy’s no-nonsense response to her shameless attempt to use her children was applauded on Twitter.
I am so happy that men are finally finding the courage to stand up to radicalized feminism.
Well said @BillCassidy! These rabid feminists will stop at nothing (including using minor children) to get what they want.
