Minnesota Freedom Fund Exposed for Having Only Spent $200K Out of $35M on Bail

An alleged nonprofit aimed at providing financial aid to looters and rioters who were arrested in the Minneapolis riots is facing widespread criticism after revealing that it has spent only a fraction of its donations and pocketed the rest, as reported by Fox News.

The group is called the Minnesota Freedom Fund, and although it has received approximately $35 million in donations, has only spent about $200,000 on actual bail for incarcerated suspects. That amounts to only 0.57 percent of its earnings actually being spent on what the group said they would spend it on.

The push to provide bail for rioters, arsonists, looters, and other criminals and terrorists during the riots became a major cause for the Left, with numerous celebrities endorsing the effort. Former Vice President Joe Biden came under heavy fire when it was revealed that a dozen of his campaign staffers had also donated to the fund and bragged about it on social media.
