Leftist activists hold little value other than the money they con their supporters out of or, if they’re members of Congress, the money they con their constituents out of in order to provide for themselves what they don’t want the people to have.
Far-left activist Rep. Cori Bush (D-Mo.) has ingratiated herself into being a true D.C. politician by living by the motto, ‘Rules for thee, but not for me.’
As leftist-run cities across the U.S. suffer from their “leaders” allowing crime to run rampant because — I don’t know, racism — they spend tens and hundreds of thousands of dollars to protect themselves from the people they’ve sworn to represent.
Bush has reportedly spent over $70,000 more dollars on security for herself — and that’s just in the first quarter of 2022 alone!

According to Fox News:
The Missouri Democrat's campaign reported spending $70,489 on security services between Jan. 1 and March 31, Federal Election Commission filings show. The payments include $50,489 to Peace Security, $15,000 to Cortney Merrits and $5,000 to Nathaniel Davis.
Bush's newest security checks follow the $233,663 her committee spent on the services in 2021, FEC records show. She has now paid out $304,152 for security this election cycle.
Look, I understand that more high-profile members of Congress and people in the public eye get threats of all kinds directed towards them. I get it. But when part of your whole “persona” is to vilify the idea of police and getting cities to defund their respective departments, it’s just a little hypocritical to spend tens of thousands of dollars every fiscal quarter on security just for you.
There must be no mirrors in Washington D.C., because self-awareness apparently isn’t something politicians possess.
