Cori Bush’s legal fees adding up before competitive primary: Report

Rep. Cori Bush (R-MO) reportedly spent $86,000 on legal fees during the year’s first quarter amid a Justice Department investigation into payments her campaign made for her husband’s security services.

Bush’s campaign finance records, obtained by Axios, reveal her team paid nearly $100,000 to law firms between January and March. That reportedly leaves her campaign with $528,000 and $91,000 in debt, while her Democratic primary opponent, Wesley Bell, has more than $1.1 million cash on hand and zero debt. Bush has maintained her innocence during the DOJ’s inquiry into her.
