The far-left “Squad” of progressive lawmakers spent nearly $100,000 on private security in the third financial quarter — despite their incessant calls to “Defund the Police.”
Reps. Ilhan Omar, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Cori Bush and Ayanna Pressley collectively amassed a huge amount of private security bills.
“Ocasio-Cortez’s campaign spent over $10,000 on private policing with Cest Bond Collective, Three Bridges NY LLC and Tullis World Wide Protection, eclipsing Rep. Ayanna Pressley’s, D-Mass., personal security bill of almost $4,000 with Ware Security Consultants Inc., FEC records show,” Fox News reports. “Both Ocasio-Cortez and Pressley are dwarfed in their security spending, though, by Reps. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn., and Cori Bush, D-Mo.”
The report continued on to say that “Omar’s FEC records revealed the defund law enforcement advocate has spent over $22,000 on private security with Aegis Logistics LLC and Lloyd Security Services while Bush took the cake by throwing down another $65,000 on private security.”
