The Free Beacon reports that Gideon staffers donated to the Minnesota Freedom Fund, which primarily supports bail for rioters arrested in Minnesota, but does not review the charges of those it is bailing out before paying their bail. So far, the Free Beacon reports, rioters in Minnesota have caused in excess of $55 million in damage.
The news that so many Gideon staffers had donated to bail rioters and violent criminals out of jail is not the first hint of a campaign at odds with law-and-order.
Gideon has taken fire in recent weeks for accepting contributions and even attending fundraisers and events with groups that loudly proclaim the left’s “Defund the Police” demands.
Gideon has established ties or accepted endorsements from at least four “Defund the Police” organizations. One of those organizations, NextGen America, has hosted a fundraiser for Gideon and proudly gives out “Defund the Police” bumper stickers on their website.
