The campaign to ‘defund the police’ is coming back to haunt Democrats, particularly those who are facing tough reelection battles.
Rep. Abigail Spanberger of Virginia is one such Democrat. She is trying to rewrite history and block out any memory of her support for defunding police.
When voters look at crime and how pervasive it has become, they know there is only one party responsible for this.
Breitbart News reports:
Vulnerable Democrat Abigail Spanberger Again Tries to Erase Her Anti-Law Enforcement Record
Vulnerable Virginia Democrat Rep. Abigail Spanberger, who is in a tough reelection battle, again tried to erase her anti-law enforcement record with a campaign ad this week.
Spanberger, who has a history of supporting the Defund the Police movement, is trying to rewrite history this week again with an ad that depicts the congresswoman as pro-law enforcement by touting her and her father’s credentials and claiming that she “increased police funding.”
The congresswoman also tried to rewrite history in April by campaigning in a predominantly conservative area and saying the Defund the Police slogan pushed by her far-left colleagues was “a terrible idea.”
However, the congresswoman, as she usually does, left out that she has taken thousands of dollars from groups that want to defund the police, voted for an anti-law enforcement bill backed by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), voted against condemning calls to defund the police, and marched with Black Lives Matter.
Spanberger has been supported by radical groups in the past, taking thousands of dollars from and being endorsed by groups that want to defund the police.
Take a look below to see how Spanberger is trying to pander and spin her past position.
Years ago, my father — a law enforcement officer — wrote to me, “there’s no greater vocation than service to country.”

Voters can see through this. The Republican running against her is an actual law enforcement officer.
