Congresswoman-elect Cori Bush Says Republican Colleagues Called Her Breonna Taylor During Freshman Orientation

News outlets and publications have covered the case of Breonna Taylor and the subsequent protests in the eight months after she was killed by police on March 13. Yet, there are still Republican politicians who aren’t quite sure who Taylor is.

On her first day in Congress, Missouri Congresswoman-elect Cori Bush posed for a picture wearing a face mask with the name “Breonna Taylor.” According to Elle Magazine, Bush tweeted a few hours later that a number of her Republican colleagues were confusing her for Taylor.

"It’s Day One, so I’m wearing my 'Breonna Taylor' mask," she wrote. "A few of my Republican colleagues have called me Breonna, assuming that’s my name. It hurts. But I’m glad they’ll come to know her name & story because of my presence here. Breonna must be central to our work in Congress."
