Cori Bush (D-MO), a fervent advocate of “defunding the police,” used taxpayers’ money to pay private securities, according to documents compiled in a “House Disbursement Statement”.
The statement states that on February 19, Bush paid $ 880 to a company called RSAT Security Consulting, LLC.
According to Daily Caller, RSAT Security has an Instagram page with “photos of police officers, military personnel and members of the secret service”.
Bush hiring such an enterprise while advocating “defusing the police” seems to be a moral contradiction.
While the amount paid for this one exchange of services is small, security seems to take precedence over the matter for them.

Even when she publicly called for “disappointing the police,” Cori Bush spent a lot of campaign money on her own safety.
According to their April 2021 quarterly report, Bush hired a similarly named security consultancy three times: $ 7,743.75 on February 17, 2021, $ 5,812.00 on February 26, 2021, and $ 2,456.25 on March 15, 2021.
All in all, Bush spent over $ 30,000 on her own safety in the first quarter.
The Daily Caller reported in April that she, along with other members of the squad, had spent thousands of dollars on private security services.
Federal Election Commission (FEC) records showed that MPs Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY), Ilhan Omar (D-MN) and Ayanna Pressley (D-MA) also spent thousands to protect themselves.

It’s not a slogan
Cori Bush, who has since used taxpayers’ money to fund her own private security, struck Barack Obama after the former president criticized “snappy” slogans such as “defund the police” as a lost political argument.
“With all due respect, Mr. President – let’s talk about losing people,” tweeted Bush. “We lost Michael Brown Jr. We lost Breonna Taylor. We lose our loved ones through police violence. “
“It’s not a slogan,” she insisted. “It is a mandate to keep our people alive. Defund the police. “

The Missouri Democrat previously called for the Pentagon to be discharged.
“If you’re having a bad day, just think about all of the social services we’ll fund after we weaken the Pentagon,” Bush tweeted in October.

Bush recently described America as “racist AF” – a vulgar acronym for the “F-word” – in response to Senator Tim Scott (R-SC) who argued that America was not inherently racist.
Our communities shouldn’t have started a national movement to save black lives if America weren’t for racist AF.

The congresswoman raised her eyebrows when she described women as “birth people” a few days before Mother’s Day.
Her call to disappoint the police, however, has been her most stubborn calling and makes her use of private security services an example of hypocrisy at its finest.
But being a member of the squad requires hypocrisy, apparently as a requirement for inclusion.
