Republican Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp completely obliterated Democratic gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams after it was revealed that the total cost she’s paid for private security over the course of a four-month period, actually surpassed that paid by others who are part of the radical progressive group within Congress known as the “Squad” for an entire year.
“Despite being the faces of the far-left movement demonizing police across the country, even the Squad falls short of Stacey Abrams’ double standard,” Kemp went on to say Wednesday in an exclusive statement given to Fox News Digital.
“Abrams champions – and continues to profit from – the ‘Defund the Police’ movement, while also paying more than her liberal pals in Congress for private security,” he continued. “Abrams’ dangerous agenda and outrageous hypocrisy put herself ahead of the safety and security of Georgia families.”
According to Fox News, while Abrams does not currently hold a public office, she’s paid a whopping $450,000 between the months of December 2021 and April 2022 to a company known as Executive Protection Agencies (EPA Securities), which is a private firm located in Atlanta.
Why in the world does this woman need this much security without being a public official? This is an insane amount of cash being flushed down the toilet, all the while she’s preaching against the police and wanting to see more gun control law enacted, which would prevent normal folks like you and I from having the means to protect ourselves.
The average person does not have a veritable fortune on hand to pay for private security guards, but that doesn’t seem to bother Abrams.
The amount Abrams is forking out for her private security is $125,000 more than “Rep. Cori Bush, D-Mo., Rep. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn., Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., Rep. Jamaal Bowman, D-N.Y., Rep. Rashida Tlaib, D-Mich., and Rep. Ayanna Pressley, D-Mass., combined paid for all of 2021.”
“According to Federal Election Commission records reviewed by Fox News Digital, the “Squad” collectively spent over $325,000 on private security, with Bush’s spending making up the majority of the amount, coming in at $200,000 for the year. Ocasio-Cortez followed with $75,000, Omar at $30,000, Pressley at $14,000, Bowman at $7,800 and Tlaib at nearly $3,000,” Fox reported.
According to the report, Bush dropped an extra $70,000 on private security during the first quarter of the year, which put her total up to over $300,000, which is still far below the amount Abrams has spent in just four months’ time.
“In a separate statement provided to Fox News Digital, Kemp’s campaign slammed Abrams’ ‘hypocrisy’ over the spending and ‘Defund the Police’ ties. The campaign accused her of supporting the movement despite her previous claim,” the report stated.
“Stacey Abrams’ jaw-dropping hypocrisy knows no limits. While she tries to run from her record of supporting – and profiting from – the Defund the Police movement, Governor Kemp will continue to stand with the men and women in law enforcement that keep our communities safe,” Tate Mitchell, the press secretary for the Kemp campaign stated.
This just demonstrates how out of touch progressives really are with the average folk. They want to see police defunded, which ultimately leads to less police officers on the streets to protect neighborhoods and an increase in crime, while they sit safe and sound with private security normal people can’t afford.
