Reuters: Biden staff donate to group that pays bail in riot-torn Minneapolis

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.

WNU Editor: The intention of Biden's staff is clear. To assist suspects arrested for rioting, looting, and destroying property by paying their bail. Here is an easy prediction. Helping those who have been arrested for these crimes is not going to go over well for most people in Minnesota. Biden's staff may have just cost him the state of Minnesota.

Almaty photo op or not sure looks good right about now.

It did not cost Joe anything. He is more like a life size cutout posterboard figure that is the face of the campaign. It is not his campaign.

Except that this cutout, cuts loose on air, when you pull it finger or not.

Weekend at Joe's
