Vasquez “fully supports” defunding police

According to a new report, Gabe Vasquez “vowed he would ‘fully support’ halving the police budget of the city in which he served as a member of the city council.”

Vasquez wrote to a constituent, “I wholeheartedly and absolutely support police reform and the #blacklivesmatter movement.” And in response to an email calling for “defunding the police department” he wrote back “I agree.”

“The more we learn about Gabe Vasquez, the clearer it is that he’s an anti-police extremist,” said CLF Press Secretary Cally Perkins. “Vasquez certainly can’t be trusted to keep families safe, and his pro-criminal agenda has no place in Congress.”
