Congressional Dem Will Still Call For Police To Be Defunded Despite Skyrocketing Crime

Rep. Cori Bush (D-MO) found herself in hot water over the weekend when she doubled down on Twitter in her support for defunding the police.

Instead of walking back her comments, Bush is standing by them.

According to Axios:

“Rep. Cori Bush (D-Mo.) says she's not going to stop using the slogan "defund the police" ahead of this fall's midterms…” 


"'Defund the police' is not the problem," she added. "We dangled the carrot in front of people’s faces and said we can get it done and that Democrats deliver, when we haven’t totally delivered."

Bush’s call for police to be defunded comes at a time when violent crime is skyrocketing because Democrat-run cities defunded their police departments.

MAKE NO MISTAKE: Bush is NOT the only Congressional Democrat that supports the radical defund the police movement. It’s a view that many of them support. Bush just has the courage to stand by it consistently despite the constant public backlash.
