Well, well, well, what do we have here…the making of a “Squad scandal?”
That’s what it looks like – and it really is a doozy, and once again, this is something that the Republicans should be shouting from the rooftops.
This scandal involved the wildly unpopular “Defund the Police” agenda that is very popular with the Squad. You can see these radical communist women out there shouting about how we need to get rid of the police and defund them.
These rich women with privileged lives and private security, want everyone else left helpless…and speaking of private security…it turns out that while the Squad was calling to take the police away from low-income America, they were actually using $700,000 dollars worth of tax dollars to purchase private “security services.”
The elites will always be taken care of, while the peasants suffer…
Daily Wire says that the “FEC is sporting that Democrats New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Minnesota Rep. Ilhan Omar, Massachusetts Rep. Ayanna Pressley, and Missouri Rep. Cori Bush each spent thousands of dollars on their own security,” the Daily Caller reported. “The payments were described in the FEC filings as either ‘security’ or ‘security services.’”
The legislators are believed to have spent nearly $70,000 for private security all the while demanding that police be “defunded” and that tax dollars meant for law enforcement be rerouted to community welfare organizations and police duties are reassigned to social workers, leaving communities unprotected.
“Individually, AOC spent $24,279.13 on ‘security’ on January 25, 2021, and $3,986.60 on ‘security services’ on January 19, 2021, and $849.22 on ‘security services’ on February 2. On February 25, she spent on 24&7 Security & Investigation, Inc., and the details read ‘security detail in Houston,’” per the International Business Times, citing the Daily Caller’s research <https://www.ibtimes.sg/squads-hypocrisy-aoc-ilhan-omar-rashida-tlaib-spend-top-dollar-security-while-pressing-56950>.
Ilhan Omar “spent $3,103.61 for her personal security,” according to her quarterly expenditure report. Ayanna Pressley spent $4,186.75. Cori Bush spent $30,000 all on her own.
Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) also a member of “The Squad” who routinely accuses police of being killers, is alleged to have spent “thousands.”
All four women are on the record as opposing continued spending for law enforcement, and both Ocasio-Cortez and Tlaib, the Daily Caller notes, have been adamant that “Defund the Police” means “defund the police,” and that, despite criticism — even from former President Barack Obama — the policy will work.
As I said above, the Republicans should be running this into the ground, every day, all day…
The American people have made it perfectly clear that they do not want anything to do with this “defund the police” nonsense – so to have this gem, proving the elitist hypocrisy on the issue that’s already unpopular is a political gift to the GOP.
Will they take it? Will these worthless bums finally stand up and fight?
