Before she was officially selected as Democrat nominee Joe Biden’s running mate, Kamala Harris urged her Twitter followers to donate to the Minnesota Freedom Fund, a bail fund that rose in popularity after protests broke out in Minneapolis after George Floyd’s death in May.
The Daily Caller reported on Wednesday that MFF has contributed to posting bail for a man accused of sexually assaulting an eight-year-old girl. Kamala Harris has yet to retract her endorsement of the MFF.
The MFF was founded in 2016 with the intent of paying “criminal bail and immigration bonds for those who cannot otherwise afford to as we seek to end discriminatory, coercive, and oppressive jailing,” according to the organization’s website.
After anti-police protests erupted in May, the MFF received a sharp influx of donations earmarked for those arrested in the ensuing chaos. Kamala Harris tweeted on June 1, “if you’re able to, chip in now to the @MNFreedomFund to help post bail for those protesting on the ground in Minnesota.”
Even after joining the Biden campaign and issuing tepid statements against anti-police violence, Harris declined to delete the endorsement and has refused to explain her current stance on the controversial program.
As new revelations about the true intent of the MFF surface, Harris may be forced to explain herself. The Daily Caller reported:
The Minnesota Freedom Fund (MFF) also helped post bail in August for a man accused of assaulting a 71-year-old woman as he burglarized her home, court documents show. One week after his release the man was found to be in violation of his bail. The Hennepin County Sheriff’s Office told the DCNF [Daily Caller News Foundation] on Wednesday there is still an active felony warrant out for that man’s arrest.
Court documents reviewed by the DCNF reveal that the bail fund also provided support in June to a man who allegedly stomped on and robbed a victim on the streets of Minneapolis on May 25, the same day George Floyd died while in police custody.
Americans are sick and tired of the senseless violence plaguing once-great cities. Biden and Harris are trying to to toe the line with leftists that have promoted the riots, but it’s not doing the Democrat party any favor in the polls.
