Police arrested nearly two dozen anti-Kavanaugh protesters who were blockading parts of U.S. Senate office buildings Thursday.

The Hill reports 23 people protesting inside Sen. Bob Corker’s office were hauled away and charged with“crowding and obstructing hallways and passageways, according to a spokeswoman for the Capitol Police," leaving dozens more still congregated inside congressional offices.

Protesters represented a number of groups, including the Center for Popular Democracy and the Women's March. 

The banshees also set up shop in the offices of Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley and Sen. Susan Collins, chanting, “We believe women!” Then they popped a squat and ordered lunch.

They also did this weird thing in which a woman would recount her experience with sexual assault or harassment and the whole group would repeat her statements verbatim. It was…well, it was something.

Being that it’s only Thursday, it doesn’t appear like the folks who show up to these gatherings have much else to do with their time. Hundreds of women (and a few men) showed up in D.C. to protest Kavanaugh after his nomination and during the first few days of his confirmation hearings, some dressed as handmaids. There was also this guy, who was dressed up as a condom. Click at your own risk.

Oddly enough, the accusers of Keith Ellison and Bill Clinton weren’t among them.
