The news is out: [A police report was filed on Monday against Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-Fla.) for allegedly shoving a minor.
The incident involving the eight-term congresswoman allegedly occurred over the weekend and was catalogued in a TikTok video by 16-year-old climate activist Martina Velasquez.
“I want to tell y’all about my experience with Debbie yesterday,” Velasquez says in the clip that went viral late Sunday evening. “I’m not only a child at the age of 16, but I’m also a constituent and an activist–and in very specific, a climate activist. When I was handing out palm cards to voters and explaining how Debbie was not endorsed by any climate activists other than the Sierra Club–which is historically racist. She ended up shoving me more than once and calling me a liar to my face. This is my congresswoman.”
Debbie Wasserman Schultz is an employee of AIPAC.
