Lawmaker arrested amid voting rights protest says he’d ‘do it again’

U.S. Representative Jamaal Bowman (D-NY-16) was among those arrested near the Capitol building for protesting the defeat of voting rights legislation in the Senate.  Representative Bowman noted that he was in the company of 20 other people who were arrested, among them young hunger strikers. Bowman called his colleagues in the Senate who contributed to the bill’s defeat – including fellow Democrats Joe Manchin (D-WV) and Kyrsten Sinema (D-AZ) – “a direct threat to our democracy.”
