Yes, that’s a DEMOCRAT of course.
And as Trump always reminds us, they are the Democrat party, not the Democratic party.
Our friends at MAGAvoter have reported:
While attending a Black Lives Matter sponsored “Count Every Vote” protest at Capitol Hill on Tuesday, first-term Democrat Senator Nikema Williams of Atlanta, Georgia, was arrested by Capitol Police.
The protesters were ordered to disperse after being warned by authorities against breaking rules regarding chanting while lawmakers were in session, eventually leading to Williams’ arrest, which the Atlanta Senator disputed.
“I was not yelling, I was not chanting,” said Senator Williams during the incident, which was captured on video. “I stood peacefully next to my constituents, because they wanted their voices to be heard, and now I’m being arrested.”

Here's more on the story from the HuffPost:
A Georgia state senator who joined protesters at the state Capitol building in Atlanta in an effort to make sure all the ballots from last week’s gubernatorial election are counted was arrested on Tuesday.
State Sen. Nikema Williams (D-Atlanta) was arrested in the rotunda after authorities said they issued warnings for the demonstrators to disperse.
“I stood peacefully next to my constituents because they wanted their voices to be heard, and now I’m being arrested,” Williams told reporters after her hands were zip-tied by police. “And now I’m being arrested.”
The demonstrations were sparked by concerns over the ongoing recount in the too-close-to-call governor’s race between Republican Brian Kemp and Democrat Stacey Abrams. A federal judge blocked Georgia’s secretary of state, who until last Thursday was Kemp, from certifying election results until at least this coming Friday in order to allow time to review thousands of provisional ballots.
The protesters chanted “Count every vote!” during the demonstration and “Let her go!” as Williams was being arrested, WSB-TV reported. Several other people were also arrested, according to the station.
“When a sitting senator, who is the vice chair of the state Democratic Party, is thrown into a paddy wagon at the state capitol, it is a stark reminder that our right to freely assemble is at risk,” said state Sen. Nan Orrock (D-Atlanta), according to The Atlanta Journal-Constitution.
