Justice Department investigating Democratic Rep. Cori Bush over alleged misuse of campaign funds

WASHINGTON - The Justice Department is investigating whether Democratic Rep. Cori Bush of Missouri misused campaign funds for her personal security, the progressive lawmaker confirmed in a statement Tuesday.

Bush, a second-term lawmaker, denied any wrongdoing and said she is ''fully cooperating'' with federal prosecutors.

''As a rank-and-file member of Congress I am not entitled to personal protection by the House, and instead have used campaign funds as permissible to retain security services,'' Bush said. ''I have not used any federal tax dollars for personal security services.''
