Defund the Police AOC and Squad Members Have Spent $1.2 Million on Private Security

Democratic New York Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and other so-called ‘Squad’ members have spent millions in campaign funds on private security, despite advocating to defund the police.

A common theme among Democrats is “rules for me, not for thee.”

It appears they believe their safety is way more important than the average American.

The New York Post reports:

AOC, ‘squad’ spent $1.2M in campaign cash on private security despite calls to defund the police

Socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and her eight-comrade “squad” of anti-cop lawmakers have shelled out more than $1.2 million in campaign funds on private security since taking office, records show.

Leading the way is Cori Bush (D-Missouri), who has reported spending more than $730,000 on private security – including $75,000 she funneled to her own husband – and Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY), whose $272,000-plus tab includes security upgrades at her district offices.

Bush’s campaign spending on security predates her 2021 arrival in the House of Representatives.

Since she first ran for Congress in 2019, she’s paid $736,748 for security services.

Among the benefactors of her donor’s largesse was St. Louis-based Peace Security, a pro-gun, right-wing private security firm that racked up $380,947 despite reportedly promoting the Second Amendment — in sharp contrast to Democratic socialist Bush’s anti-gun campaign messaging…

Ocasio-Cortez is second among squad members in campaign security spending, shelling out $272,914.67 since taking office in 2019.

Here is a reminder of what AOC said:

Similarly, Democrat Cori Bush, another “defund the police advocate,” paid her husband $30,000 for the first half of 2023 for private security services, according to a filing from her campaign’s second-quarter report.

As the Daily Fetched reported:

Bush paid her husband Cortney Merritts $17,500 in wage expenses for his “security services between April and June, Fox News reports.

Merritts received $12,000 for services rendered in the first quarter of 2023.

While Merritts has been working private security for Bush since January 2022, he did not receive his private security license, required to perform private security in St. Louis city, until February of this year.

Bush married Cortney Merritts in February, and he later received a salary of $60,000 from Bush’s campaign.

Despite Cori Bush calling to “defund the police,” she has spent half a million on private security since 2019.
