Leftist activist and US Rep. Cori Bush has been exposed as a hypocrite for pushing a ‘dufund the police’ agenda (so that poor people will get no protection from law enforcement) while at the same time using US tax money and campaign funds to pay for her own personal security detail when she is out in public fundraising and campaigning, even when there is no need for such a thing.
Undercover footage by a citizen in her district shows that Bush, in fact, has a security detail with her at a local St. Louis event where there is no threat to her, and there are hardly any people in attendance.
Watch Cori Bush walk around St. Louis like she is a rock star as recorded by social media influencer and activist Henry Davis, with her security in tow:
“The claim that she has $600,000.000 dollars worth of security with her is sort of tongue in check, but it is expensive security and it is paid for by the taxpayer,” Davis told me. “She said she was going to spend a lot of money,” he said.
The footage does show Bush with security, which fits together well with a New York Post article from Friday. Check it out.

Davis wasn’t far off, though- consider this, here is her challenger reporting that Bush was bragging about spending a lot of money on her personal security:

Bush ended up getting police fired, so in a way, she was very successful in her plan to defund police.
Cops fired for guarding ‘defund the police’ Dem Rep. Cori Bush without permission
Two St. Louis deputies were dismissed last month for working on progressive Rep. Cori Bush’s security detail without permission — days before the “Squad” member defended spending tens of thousands of campaign dollars on private protection while pushing to “defund the police.”
St. Louis Sheriff Vernon Betts told KMOV that he initially warned now-former deputies Tylance Jackson and Maurice Thompson to quit moonlighting as muscle for Bush (D-Mo.) and fill out the proper forms after they accompanied her on a tour of St. Louis jails in April. However, Betts said he was told by Veterans Affairs Police several weeks later that Jackson and Thompson were providing security for Bush again.
In addition to violating policy by not getting approval to work a secondary shift, neither Jackson nor Thompson have licenses to work private security, Betts told KMOV.
Jackson claimed Thursday that he and Thompson were dismissed because they “didn’t push the agenda of the sheriff on the client [Bush].”
“I do feel that the hand that was dealt to us was unfair and unjust,” Jackson told KMOV. “You let us go, but you still have a plethora of individuals doing that but you don’t say anything.”
Also from KMOV news
Bush was on CBS last week defending her use of private security, saying “I’m gonna make sure I have security because I know I have had attempts on my life and I have too much work to do.”
Recent federal filings show she’s spent $70,000 in campaign funds since taking office for private security services. Back in April, Bush, St. Louis Mayor Tishaura Jones and other notables took a tour of the city’s jails. News 4 obtained surveillance video from the tours and along with all others, two security guards were there to protect Bush: Tylance Jackson and Maurice Thompson.
Also there that day was St. Louis Sheriff Vernon Betts who told News 4 he was surprised to see the two security guards because they also worked for him. The sheriff told News 4 Jackson and Thompson violated policy by not getting approval to work a secondary shift as security guards. He said the two were warned not to do it again but several weeks later, he said his office was called by the VA police in Jefferson Barracks who said the two men were again providing security for Bush.
The sheriff also said he was concerned because neither Jackson or Thompson have current individual private security licenses to work in the city. News 4 has verified this. Given the multiple violations, the sheriff said he fired the two deputies.
BLM MEMBER OF CONGRESS DOES NOT LIVE BY HER OWN UTOPIAN DEMANDS
Bush is a member of Black Lives Matter, which makes her double standards about ending police forces for poor people even worse. On top of that- Bush also openly battles with Populist Marjorie Taylor Green and disrupts business at the US Capitol.
