Alleged Child Molester Freed By Bail Fund Promoted By Kamala Harris
The Minnesota Freedom Fund, a bail fund for low-income individuals in Minneapolis that was promoted by Kamala Harris, helped a man accused of sexually assaulting a child go free.
Kamala Harris: “Chip In Now To The Minnesota Freedom Fund”
The Minnesota Freedom Fund became more widely known after the riots sparked off by the death of George Floyd in Minneapolis, as a means to help free “protesters” from jail. Vice Presidential candidate Kamala Harris fervently backed it.
So did at least 13 of Joe Biden’s staffers.
“If you’re able to, chip in now to the [Minnesota Freedom Fund] to help post bail for those protesting on the ground in Minnesota,” she tweeted.

As the Daily Caller reported, the MFF received around $35 million in donations since Floyd’s death, of which it has spent $3,475,000, and only 6% of that has gone to people arrested at Black Lives Matter protests or other related riots.
Child Molesters, Burglars, And Assaulters, All Freed On Bail
One individual apparently receiving the good graces of the MFF was Timothy Columbus, 36, charged with sexually assaulting an 8-year-old girl in 2015.
“Victim stated ‘Tim’ laid her on the couch and held her down as he unbuckled his pants and pulled down her pants. Victim stated he then ‘put his thing inside me,'” the statement of probable cause reads.
Columbus faces 30 years in prison, but was released in July on $75,000 bail. Documents obtained by the Daily Caller suggest the MFF played a role in his release. The documents, signed by Columbus, instruct the court to repay any refunded bail to the MFF.
The same goes for Richard Kelley, 53, who was charged with burglary and assault for breaking into the home of a 71-year-old woman in April, and Deshaun Boyd, 33, who allegedly assaulted and robbed a man leaning on a cane in May.
New report shows how the Minnesota Freedom Fund is spending the money that @KamalaHarris helped raise.
It is bailing out people accused of child molestation, rape, and domestic violence.https://t.co/XWkEG0jEu1

Does Harris Support Criminals?
These are the people that Kamala Harris has raised funds to bail out, folks! Does she have any idea where the money is going?
Does she care at all at the damage her fundraising has caused? Will she ever apologize for her role in bailing out violent criminals?
Perhaps Harris is totally fine with an alleged child molester being set free from donations she gathered – after all, when she was a DA in San Francisco, she apparently refused to prosecute any of the priests in her state who were accused of abusing children.
The Whole Bail System Is Broken
It also is just a latest example of the bail system as a whole completely failing to protect American citizens. Only a few days ago, a man in Portland accused of starting brush fires with a molotov cocktail was released – he went onto set 6 more fires and was re-arrested the same day.
And in July, a Virginia man was released over fears he could contract COVID – he then shot and killed the woman who had accused him of rape.
We can’t keep going on like this folks!
