BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (AL.com) — Sen. Doug Jones was heckled at a town hall meeting Monday night in Birmingham when a woman threw a pair of stuffed lips in the senator's direction while venting her anger that Alabama's junior senator is keeping an open mind on U.S. Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh.

After Jones expressed disappointment that the National Archives rejected Democrats' request for documents on Kavanaugh relating to the nominee's tenure as President George W. Bush's staff secretary, the woman stood in the center aisle of A.H. Parker High School's auditorium and shouted at the senator.

"You have enough information. We love you. But you will vote no. And you have enough information to vote no," the woman said before throwing the stuffed lips toward Jones. "You can kiss my ass if you vote yes. You can kiss my ass if you vote yes. You can kiss my ass."

The woman was immediately escorted out of the Birmingham high school by police officers.
