Authorities in Arizona are probing the illegal bathroom recording of Sen. Kyrsten Sinema (D-Ariz.), officials confirmed with The Epoch Times on Oct. 4.

Sinema was harassed over the weekend at Arizona State University (ASU) in Phoenix, where she teaches. She was followed by activists into a bathroom and recorded while inside, a violation of state law.

“The ASU Police Department is working with Senator Sinema and conducting a full investigation of the incident that occurred Sunday,” Adam Wolfe, the public information officer for the university, told The Epoch Times in an email.

“Due to the active status of the investigation, we are unable to provide more information at this time,” he wrote.

A state statute makes it illegal for any person to film another without their consent in a restroom or bathroom.

Violators can be charged with a class 5 felony. Violators can be sentenced to up to 2 1/2 years in jail.

The person who was filming appears to be with Living United for Change in Arizona (LUCHA), an activist group that supports drastically loosening laws against illegal immigration.

LUCHA didn’t respond to a request for comment, neither did the offices of Arizona Attorney General Mark Brnovich nor Sen. Mark Kelly (D-Ariz.).

Sgt. Vincent Cole, a spokesman for the Phoenix Police Department, indicated that the investigation would be taken care of by university police.

“Arizona State University has their own Police Department and are the investigating agency for this incident,” he told The Epoch Times via email.

“Like many, General Brnovich was disturbed by the video that surfaced this weekend by political activists. We cannot tolerate lawlessness and this type of conduct to occur. People can disagree without being disagreeable,” Katie Conner, a spokeswoman for Arizona Attorney General Mark Brnovich, a U.S. Senate candidate, added in an email.

Sinema denounced what happened in a lengthy statement released on Oct. 4.
