"Democratic members of Congress known as the “Squad” have spent roughly $1.2 million in campaign funds on private security during their time in office despite advocating to defund the police, according to a New York Post review of campaign finance reports.
The “Squad” is composed of left-leaning Democrats, many of whom champion “defund the police” policies along with other progressive agenda items. Missouri Rep. Cori Bush has spent more than $730,000, New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez more than $270,000 and Minnesota Rep. Ilhan Omar more than $125,000, according to the NYP. All three have previously advocated for some form of defunding the police."
