REPORT: Squad Dems Who Want to ‘Defund Police’ Spent $325K on Private Security in 2021

The so-called progressive ‘Squad’ in the House spent upwards of $325,000 on private security last year despite demanding the nation defund its police departments in the name of racial equity and social justice.

“Rep. Cori Bush, D-Mo., and other members of the far-left Squad collectively spent over $325,000 on private security in 2021 despite promoting the ‘defund the police’ movement during the George Floyd unrest of 2020, according to Federal Election Commission (FEC) records reviewed by Fox News Digital. Bush’s campaign spent over $65,000 on private security during the fourth financial quarter and approximately $200,000 total in 2021 on private security firms like Peace Security and Whole Armor Executive Protection, eclipsing the totals for the other Squad members’ private security bills for 2021,” reports Fox News.

“Defunding the police has to happen,” said Bush.

“Defunding police means defunding police,” Ocasio-Cortez said in late June 2020.

“Yes, I support the defunding of the police. If we reinvest in jobs there won’t be a need for as large of a police force as we have and there won’t be a need for the militarization of the police. The whole country is rising up because we’re tired of waiting,” said Jamaal Bowman in June 2020.
