So-called ‘Squad’ member Cori Bush reportedly spent upwards of $70,000 on private security after calling to “defund” police departments across the United States.
“Missouri Rep. Cori Bush spent nearly $70,000 on private security over the past three months as she advocated for defunding the police, campaign filings show,” reports Fox News. “Bush’s campaign sent $54,120.92 in payments between April 15 and June 28 for ‘security services’ to RS&T Security Consulting, a New York-based firm with a mysterious online presence, Federal Election Commission records released Thursday show. The Democrat’s campaign also paid $15,000 to Nathaniel Davis for “security services” over the same time period.”
“The $69,120 in security payments accounted for more than a third of Bush’s $197,000 in campaign expenditures during the second quarter, the FEC records show. It’s also nearly double what her campaign spent on private security during the first quarter of 2021,” adds Fox.

SQUAD BACKS HAMAS: Cori Bush Says Squad Will Continue to ‘Fight For Our Rights in Palestine’
Squad-member Cori Bush backed Hamas militants targeting Israeli cities with rockets Friday; saying she will “continue to fight for our rights in Palestine.”
“St. Louis sent me here to save lives… We are anti-war, we are anti-occupation, and we are anti-apartheid, period,” said Bush.
“If this body is looking for something productive to do with $3 million, instead of funding a military that kills Palestinians, I have some communities in St. Louis where that money can go!” she added.
