Rep. Lesko reveals her ‘two black grandsons, blasts police defunding

“I have two Black grandsons,” said Arizona Representative Debbie Lesko.

Arizona’s Politics

Arizona Representative Debbie Lesko made her five minutes during Wednesday’s House hearing on police reforms personal, sympathizing with the witnesses who lost loved ones to police violence and telling them, “I have two Black grandsons.” She later recounted her time as a domestic violence victim and asked former police officer Dan Bongino what would happen to future victims if we “defund the police.”

George Floyd’s brother (Philonise) testified the day after the Houston funeral. Lesko opened by saying it seemed disrespectful that Floyd was permitted to make an emotional opening statement but that Angela Underwood Jacobs – whose brother was a federal security guard shot in riots last month in Oakland – was not then immediately introduced to give her opening statement.
