There’s something about being a Democrat in modern America that seems to make the label mean “hypocrite,” as in do-as-I-say-not-as-I-do and “it’s okay for me but not for you.” We saw it in lockdown regulations as Democrat governors and mayors prevented their people from living any kind of decent life at all while they, themselves, violated their own lockdown regulations.
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.
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.
RS&T’s website is no longer active, but a cached version of its now-defunct website shows that the group provides “executive protection agents” that provide “first class executive protection and security for national and international figures.”
Meanwhile, Davis’ reported address in the filings is the same as Bush’s campaign headquarters.
How convenient for her that Bush was able to afford to pay over $20,000 per month on private security. I mean, it’s not like those funds couldn’t have been used to do things to help the poor and downtrodden which is how you would think that extra money would be used by a Democrat campaigning for office, right?
No, of course that’s not how the funds would be used. They would be used to line Bush’s pockets and the pockets for her friends because that’s how Democrat politics works.
Yet, the mainstream media will likely never report this. The hypocrisy is astounding.
