Congresswoman Ayanna Pressley, who has repeatedly called for the defunding of the police, reportedly continues to spend thousands on private security according to recently obtained records.
As The Daily Caller reports:
Democratic Massachusetts Rep. Ayanna Pressley, who has repeatedly pushed to defund the police, spent thousands of taxpayers’ dollars on private security, according to newly released Statement of Disbursements of the House records reviewed by the Daily Caller.
Pressley spent $14,000 of her Member Representational Allowance (MRA) on “security service” between January and March 2022, according to the new Statement of Disbursements of the House records.
“The Member’s Representational Allowance (MRA) is intended for individual member offices’ expenditures and receipts during a single legislative year. The MRA is funded through fiscal year appropriations and authorized annually by the Committee on House Administration (CHA). It is non-transferable between legislative years,” the House government website states.
In 2021, Pressley spent $63,000 of her MRA on “security service”— spending $28,000 between Oct. 1, 2021 and Dec. 31, 2021, and $35,000 between May 2021 and August 2021.
So far Pressley’s office has now responded to requests to comment on the thousands of dollars she reportedly spends on private security.
Isn’t this typical of the left???
That should be illegal. Spend millions on personal security instead of just having police.
When the Republicans take over the House, they should pass a rule that anyone that spoke or used social media to promote defunding the police is prohibited from spending any money — from any source — on private security.
