Kamala Harris is one of the most radical members of the Democratic Party.
The Biden campaign is trying to hide just how radical.
And Joe Biden hopes no one asks him one question about Kamala Harris’ link to rioters.
After the death of George Floyd, many celebrities such as Steve Carell, Seth Rogen, Rob Delaney, Cynthia Nixon, and Don Cheadle donated to the Minnesota Freedom Fund.
Many from the Biden campaign donated to it as well and Biden’s vice president pick, Kamala Harris, tweeted out her support.
“If you’re able to, chip in now to the @MNFreedomFund to help post bail for those protesting on the ground in Minnesota.” Harris wrote on June 1st while there was looting and rioting happening nationwide.
The Freedom Fund raised over $35 million in the aftermath of the riots which is far higher that the roughly $100,000 in annual donations the group normally takes in.
The money has not just been used to bail out protesters, or even people who are accused of violent crimes, but is bailing out convicted criminals.
The Freedom Fund paid $350,000 to bail out a twice convicted rapist who was charged in two current cases with kidnapping, assault, and sexual assault.
“The last time we were down there, the clerk said, ‘we hate it when you bail out these sex offenders, that is what they said,’” said Greg Lewin, the Freedom Fund’s interim executive director.
“I often don’t even look at a charge when I bail someone out,” Lewin said. “I will see it after I pay the bill because it is not the point. The point is the system we are fighting.”
There were not even a high number of peaceful protesters that required bailing out according to Jeff Clayton of the American Bail Coalition.
“They don’t report publicly who they bail out. In other words, there’s really no way to find out unless you go case by case, pull the files to find out if this bail fund posted the bail for these defendants and what we found out … essentially, they were not bailing out peaceful protesters, really at all,” Clayton told the Washington Examiner.
The bail for peaceful protesters didn’t require $35 million dollars.
“The peaceful protesters that were arrested and that were assigned bail was probably around 10. In the first couple of weeks, the bails were $78 or $100 in most cases,” he added.
Bail charities took in over $90 million and New York State is the only state that has restrictions on bail charities.
“New York limited the size of the bonds to $2,000 or less — to make it for low-level cases, which is what it was intended for originally and they have to disclose where they get the money and who they bailed out and what the results were,” Clayton explained.
Harris and the other big shots who promoted the Freedom Fund should have thought about the long-term ramifications of their actions.
