“WASHINGTON (Reuters) – Campaign staff for Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden are advertising their donations to a group that pays bail fees in Minneapolis after the city’s police jailed people protesting the killing of a black man by a white police officer.
At least 13 Biden campaign staff members posted on Twitter on Friday and Saturday that they made donations to the Minnesota Freedom Fund, which opposes the practice of cash bail, or making people pay to avoid pre-trial imprisonment. The group uses donations to pay bail fees in Minneapolis.
Biden campaign spokesman Andrew Bates said in a statement to Reuters that the former vice president opposes the institution of cash bail as a “modern day debtors prison.”
But the campaign declined to answer questions on whether the donations were coordinated within the campaign, underscoring the politically thorny nature of the sometimes violent protests.”
I don’t want to hear this nonsense that Democrats don’t support the rioters. They do.
If they didn’t, the rioting would have been over days ago given that Democrats control all the cities where riots and looting are occurring.
The Democratic Presidential Nominee’s campaign staff is paying to bail rioters and looters out of jail. Not that Biden is aware of this, of course–he’s not aware of very much these days. But these are the people who will be calling the shots behind the scenes for Loopy Joe.
