Riot Fund Promoted By Kamala Harris Helped Bail Out Child Predator. Why Hasn’t She Been Forced To Explain Her Support For This Fund?

A recent Daily Caller News Foundation’s investigation discovered that a bail fund promoted by Sen. Kamala Harris actually helped bail out a man accused of sexually assaulting an eight-year-old girl.

The bail fund – known as the Minnesota Freedom Fund – allowed the child predator to get out of jail in July, according to court documents obtained by the Daily Caller News Foundation.

The Minnesota Freedom Fund (MFF) was touted by Harris, along with other Democratic supporters and celebrities as a means of supporting the rioters that destroyed the city of Minneapolis, following the tragic killing of George Floyd by a Minneapolis police officer.

I, like many of you, have young children. I just find it absolutely repugnant. If I would’ve supported a fund and then discovered it was helping release child rapists I would have made it my mission to shut it down and I would apologize profusely for doing so. I haven’t heard a peep from Harris.

Harris, who is running as Vice President on the Democratic ticket with former Vice President Joe Biden, needs to explain why she hasn’t spoken out or even looked into what happened with this fund.

It’s frankly unconscionable that a child predator was bailed out of jail by this fund. Anyone who promoted or supported this fund needs to speak out now and explain themselves. Further, the media following her on the campaign trial need to ask her directly about her support for these funds and why she hasn’t spoken out yet?

According to DCNF the fund also helped post bail for a man accused of assaulting a 71-year-old woman during a burglary at her home, court documents obtained by DCNF show. He was bailed out in August. Moreover, less than a week after his release the man was found to be in violation of his bail.

It appears as the DCNF investigation division has discovered that this bail fund is being used to release hardened criminals from jail. They’ve also discovered something that anyone who studies Harris’s career knows – she panders to whoever she believes can serve her political goals best and doesn’t look back.

First, she didn’t even bother looking into who the bail fund would be used for – it was just politically expedient for her to make a statement to the special interest groups and leftist groups that hijacked George Floyd’s tragic killing by a Minneapolis police office

At one point she touted herself as a tough law and order prosecutor. But then her record came under severe criticism after those who knew her best outed her for her wishy washy ideology that would change as quickly as the political winds would carry her.

That’s what she did when the riots started. Supporting the rioters, it appeared, would be make Harris more palatable to the groups she and former Vice President Joe Biden needed support from to help them win the upcoming election.

But remember this from the NYT:

With the growing recognition that prosecutors hold the keys to a fairer criminal justice system, the term “progressive prosecutor” has almost become trendy. This is how Senator Kamala Harris of California, a likely presidential candidate and a former prosecutor, describes herself.

But she’s not. 

Time after time, when progressives urged her to embrace criminal justice reforms as a district attorney and then the state’s attorney general, Ms. Harris opposed them or stayed silent. Most troubling, Ms. Harris fought tooth and nail to uphold wrongful convictions that had been secured through official misconduct that included evidence tampering, false testimony and the suppression of crucial information by prosecutors. 

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.

Cuomo says he’ll ‘fully cooperate’ with NY AG’s review of sexual harassment claims

New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D) said Wednesday that he will “fully cooperate” with the state attorney general’s independent review into sexual harassment allegations made against the currently scandal-ridden governor, saying, “I fully support a woman’s right to come forward.”

Last Wednesday, Lindsey Boylan, who served in his administration for over three years, accused Cuomo of suggesting to her on a 2017 flight that they play strip poker, inappropriate touching, and kissing her on the lips without her consent.

Following Boylan’s accusations, 25-year-old Charlotte Bennett alleged the governor indicated interest in having an affair with her while she was serving in his administration as a health policy adviser. In a Saturday New York Times report, Bennett told the newspaper that Cuomo asked her if she had “ever been with an older man,” adding that “age doesn’t matter” in relationships.

At Wednesday’s press briefing, the Empire State governor addressed the accusations leveled against him over the past seven days by three women and New York Attorney General Letitia James’ (D) independent review into those claims, which she announced on Monday was formally proceeding.

“As you probably know, the attorney general is doing an independent review, and I will fully cooperate with that review,” Cuomo said at the beginning of his statement. “Now, the lawyers say I shouldn’t say anything when you have a pending review until that review is over. I understand that, I’m a lawyer, too. But, I want New Yorkers to hear from me directly on this.”

“First, I fully support a woman’s right to come forward,” the governor began. “And I think it should be encouraged in every way. I now understand that I acted in a way that made people feel uncomfortable. It was unintentional and I truly and deeply apologize for it. I feel awful about it, and frankly I am embarrassed by it, and that’s not easy to say. But that’s the truth.”

This echoes what Cuomo said in a Sunday statement about the allegations, in which he stated he “may have been insensitive” during his tenure but charged his accusers of misinterpreting his actions, saying, “I acknowledge some of the things I have said have been misinterpreted as an unwanted flirtation… I am truly sorry about that.”

During his Wednesday remarks, Cuomo iterated “I never touched anyone inappropriately,” repeated that sentence, then said “I never knew at the time that I was making anyone feel uncomfortable” and repeated that one too.

“And I certainly never, ever meant to offend anyone or hurt anyone or cause anyone any pain. That is the last thing I would ever want to do,” he continued. “I ask the people of this state to wait for the facts from the attorney general’s report before forming an opinion. Get the facts, please, before forming an opinion.”

“I also want you to know that I have learned from what has been an incredibly difficult situation for me as well as other people, and I’ve learned an important lesson,” the governor said at the end of his statement. “I’m sorry. I’m sorry for whatever pain I caused anyone, I never intended it, and I will be the better for this experience.”

Amid Boylan and Bennett’s allegations, another report of Cuomo sexually harassing a woman has cropped up. On Monday, a woman named Anna Ruch accused the governor of placing his hands on her cheeks—without her consent—at a 2019 wedding reception and asking if he could kiss her. A photograph of the two together at the event has also been circulating on social media.

Asked at Wednesday’s briefing about the pictures that have resurfaced of him being touchy with people, particularly that of him and Ruch, the governor claimed that it is his way of greeting people.

“I understand the opinion of—and feelings of—Ms. Ruch,” Cuomo said. “You can find hundreds of pictures of me making the same gesture with hundreds of people—women, children, men, etc. You can go find hundreds of pictures of me kissing people. […] It is my usual and customary way of greeting.”

Moreover, the governor said that his father, former Gov. Mario Cuomo, would do the same thing.

“By the way, it was my father’s way of greeting people,” Cuomo said, explaining, “You’re the governor of the state, you want people to feel comfortable, you want to reach out to them.”

He also mentioned that he kisses and hugs legislators and noted that at an event in Queens the other day he hugged pastors and state assembly members.

Furthermore, the governor said that his intent “doesn’t matter,” saying, “What it matters is if anybody was offended by it.”

“But if they were offended by it, then it was wrong,” he added, going on to say that if they were offended or hurt by it, he apologizes.
