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.”
“Bush’s campaign spent $64,141.26 on private security between the beginning of July and late September, the Federal Election Commission records show. The cash was dished out to a handful of firms, including Peace Security, RS&T Security Consulting, Aegis Logistics, Whole Armor Executive Protection & Security and Nathaniel Davis, whose payments are sent to the same address as her campaign headquarters.”
Each of these women have been outspoken about taking away police from communities that can’t afford the private security that they have.
