Missouri Rep. Cori Bush, a Democrat who has continually pushed defunding the police, has splashed almost $70,000 on private security, according to campaign filings.

$54,120.92 in payments were sent by Bush's campaign between April 15 and June 28 for "security services" to a New York-based firm called RS&T Security Consulting, Federal Election Commission records show.

Over the same period, Bush's campaign also paid $15,000 to Nathaniel Davis for "security services."

The $69,120 in security payments were over a third of Bush's $197,000 in campaign expenditures in the second quarter, the FEC records reveal.

The figure is almost double what her campaign spent on private security during the first quarter.

Although RS&T's website is no longer active, a cached version shows the group provides "executive protection agents" that provide "first-class executive protection and security for national and international figures."

The address in the filings is the same as Bush's campaign headquarters.

Despite Bush's campaign spending thousands on private security, she is an outspoken critic of law enforcement and starch advocate of defunding the police.

Bush claimed that defunding the police is not a "radical" idea.

She also praised St. Louis in April for its "historic" vote to defund police.

"Today's decision to defund the St. Louis Metropolitan Police Department is historic," Bush said in a statement at the time.

"It marks a new future for our city. For decades, our city funneled more and more money into our police department under the guise of public safety while massively underinvesting in the resources that will truly keep our communities safe."

In May, Bush even praised a Black Lives Matter activist who called for America's police officers to be killed.

Last month, Bush introduced a bill to replace law enforcement with “community-led first responders."

“What this will do directly is save lives," Bush said at the time.

"What we will have done is change the culture, removing their crisis care from one that has to deal with law enforcement to one that actually works with the providers that would take care of them normally, people that understand what they’re facing.”

Bush is not the first and probably won't be the last Democrat to push defunding the police while spending on private security.

Last year, Minneapolis City Council members who called to 'defund the police' spent $63,000 on private security.

The private security detail racked up to $4,500 a day in taxpayer's money.

“The names of the people getting security details are not public,” a city spokesperson told Fox News.
