A George Soros-backed progressive activist group has taken credit for a confrontation that took place last Friday in an elevator, during which two women cornered Sen. Jeff Flake after he announced he would vote to confirm Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court, The Washington Free Beacon reported.

Flake was on his way to the Senate Judiciary Committee when the women told him they were sexual assault survivors and implored him to change his mind.

The Center for Popular Democracy's co-executive director, Ana Maria Archila, confirmed in a blogpost that she was one of the two women who confronted Flake.

According to The Washington Free Beacon, the group receives a large portion of its funding from liberal billionaire Soros, who drives an $80 million anti-Trump network.

"Flake could not even look us in the eyes when we shared with him our experiences of sexual assault," Archila wrote. "He would not make eye contact with me when I asked him to think about my children, and his own children."

Archilla added that the fight was not over and that the group would "continue to partner with the Women's March and many allies to help everyday heroes hold the powerful accountable in Washington, D.C."

She called for supporters to "continue to demand that our elected officials do everything they can to stop this nomination process. "

The Center for Popular Democracy was founded in 2012 and has since formed partnerships with over 50 left-wing activist groups, according to its website. The group is also an approved organization of the Democracy Alliance, the Free Beacon noted.
