Val Demings Silent as Nancy Pelosi Leaves Police Funding Out of Spending Bill

MIAMI, FLA. — Tomorrow Val Demings is set to vote on the Democrats’ newest radical spending package, which after an internecine battle among House Democrats will not include police funding. 

Nancy Pelosi went back and forth with her caucus over the last several weeks on efforts to bring a police funding bill to the floor for a vote. Several House Democrats urged Pelosi to increase police funding in an effort to bat down the Defund wing of their party.

Noticeably absent from the group making these pleas? Val Demings. 

“Val Demings lied through her teeth about her support of the Defund the Police movement in an effort to deceive Floridians and further her own political career. At a time when violent crime is rising in cities across the country, Demings has again failed to defend and deliver for law enforcement in Washington. Demings will always choose party politics over getting the men and women in law enforcement the resources they need and the respect they deserve,” said Elizabeth Gregory, communications director for Marco Rubio for Senate.
