Cori Bush, a representative known for championing the defund the police movement, has been caught amidst questions related to campaign spending on private security. Reports show that her campaign has paid substantial money to her husband, Courtney Merritts, whose specifics are not found in a D.C. database of licensed security specialists. This comes against the backdrop of Cori Bush’s strong stance on reducing police funding. Moreover, watchdog groups have raised their concerns, leading to at least two FEC complaints. The findings question whether Bush’s advocacy for reducing police funding aligns with the fact that she herself benefits from private security, an aspect that she revealed during a CBS interview in July 2021. While she insists on her personal security needs, critics point to possible hypocrisy.
