Rep. Bush spent nearly $70K on security last quarter despite ‘defund the police’ rhetoric

As it turns out, some proponents of leftist “Defund the Police” demands do not live by their own advice.

According to reports, U.S. Rep. Cori Bush (D-MO) has spent roughly $70,000 of campaign funds to provide private security.

Breakdown of campaign expenditures

Federal Election Commission data revealed Bush’s expenditures during the second quarter of the year.

According to that campaign filing, the congresswoman spent $69,120 on private security, which accounted for more than one-third of her overall campaign expenses for the quarter.

The majority of the security budget went to RS&T Security Consulting for services provided to Bush between April 15 and June 28. As for the remaining amount — about $15,000 — went to Nathaniel Davis with “security services” listed next to the entry.

Fox News reported that the address listed for Davis is the same as that of Bush’s campaign headquarters. Meanwhile, RS&T has a website that is no longer active.

During the first quarter of the year, the Missouri Democrat spent another $35,000 on personal security, bringing the total for the first half of the year past $100,000.

Backlash from moderate Democrats

While few would begrudge any public figure access to reasonable security, Bush’s case is notable because of her leading efforts in a progressive crusade to “defund” police. After St. Louis advanced a measure to defund its police department, she celebrated the move.

“Today’s decision to defund the St. Louis Metropolitan Police Department is historic,” she said at the time. “It marks a new future for our city. For decades, our city funneled more and more money into our police department under the guise of public safety, while massively underinvesting in the resources that will truly keep our communities safe.”

She has not offered a statement regarding how that sentiment reconciles with her own lavish spending on personal security services.

Despite calls from the left, several Democratic Party leaders have made it clear that the party has no intentions of pursuing a widespread “defund the police” movement.

One party insider explained the prevailing sentiment in a statement to the New York Post: “It’s not a winning issue and Democrats are by and large not going to campaign on it. There’s what the activists want us to do and what we’re actually doing and we’re going to run campaigns based on what we’re actually doing.”
