EXCLUSIVE: The Minnesota bail fund Kamala Harris continues to support helped bail a man accused of sexually penetrating an 8-year-old girl out of jail.

These allegations in these court documents are stomach-churning.

New w/ @KyleHooten2

Harris has never stopped fundraising for the Minnesota Freedom Fund.

The fundraising link she tweeted out on June 1 contains her picture and her former campaign slogan.

It continues to actively accept donations for the MFF.

Harris said contributions to MFF would "help post bail for those protesting on the ground in Minnesota."

But the MFF revealed in September that only about 6% of the $3,475,000 it has spent since Floyd’s death has gone to help people facing protest-related charges.
Where's the other 94% of MFF's spending going?

To help people like Timothy Wayne Columbus, 36, who faces up to 30 years in prison for allegedly sexually penetrating an eight-year-old girl.
The MFF also helped bail out a man accused of beating a 71-year-old woman as he burglarized her home

The victim identified the man as her own son. She waited 3 days to call the police because of COVID

Police found a pool of blood when they arrived at her home
What's more: this man broke the terms of his bail in mid-August -- just one week after he was released from jail.

The Hennepin County Sheriff's office told me today there was still an active felony warrant for his arrest.
The fund also helped bust out of jail a man accused of assaulting and robbing a man a Minneapolis street corner without warning.

After the victim was knocked to the ground the suspect "started to stomp" on his head as he "attempted to shield his body from the repeated blows."
The Biden campaign has not returned numerous requests for comment asking about Harris's continued support of the MFF in light of the people they're supporting.

The full court documents are linked in the story.
