Dem. Rep. Admits She Wants Private Security For Herself And To Defund The Police

Democrat Rep. Cori Bush this morning said that she would “make sure” she has private security for her protection while simultaneously promising to defund the police for the rest of America.  That’s right, Bush wants police for Democrats but not the rest of America.  TRANSCRIPT:  I’m going to make sure I have security because I know I have had attempts on my life, and I have too much work to do. There are too many people that need help right now for me to allow that. So if I end up spending 200,000, if I spend ten -- ten -- ten more dollars on it, you know what, I get to be here to do the work. So suck it up. And defunding the police has to happen.” OTHER DEMOCRATS WHO SUPPORT DEFUNDING THE POLICE:  Bush's comments also come at a time when murders have increased 16% across major U.S. cities so far in 2021. This spike in crime can be attributed to Democrats' support for the radical Defund the Police movement.
