Activists Hold Sit In At Sen. Susan Collins (R-ME) Office In Portland
Kate Simson, with Sen. Susan Collins' office, inside the office on September 28, 2018 in Portland, Maine. Simson periodically stepped out to take down protestors' complaints. Sen. Jeff Flake (R-AZ) was crucial in getting the committee to agree to an additional week of investigations into accusations of sexual assault against Kavanaugh before the full Senate votes. A day earlier the committee heard from Kavanaugh and Christine Blasey Ford, a California professor who has accused Kavnaugh of sexually assaulting her during a party in 1982 when they were high school students in suburban Maryland.
