Radical Democrat “Squad” Members Spent Tens Of Thousands Of Dollars On Personal Security While Pushing For Police Forces Across America To Have Their Budgets Slashed, Financial Records Have Revealed.
While publically pushing the “Defund the Police” movement, the group of female, progressive federal legislators bolstered their own private security in the first quarter of 2021, FEC documents filed by four “Squad” members show.
The records show that the socialist lawmakers were quietly spending thousands on “security services” while publicly calling for law enforcement to be defunded over concerns of institutionalized racism.
“FEC reports show Democrats New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Minnesota Rep. Ilhan Omar, Massachusetts Rep. Ayanna Pressley, and Missouri Rep. Cori Bush each spent thousands of dollars on their own security,” according to a new report from The Daily Caller.
“The payments were described in the FEC filings as either ‘security’ or ‘security services.’”
The far-left legislators are believed to have racked up almost $70,000 in private security bills, all the while demanding that police be “defunded.”
