‘Where’s the rest?’ Calls for transparency as Minnesota Freedom Fund raises MILLIONS, but spends only $200k to bail out protesters
A Minnesota bailout fund that raised millions as protests gripped Minneapolis after the death of George Floyd revealed it has spent only $200,000 to bail out protesters – and social media wants to see the receipts for the rest.
The Minnesota Freedom Fund (MFF) managed to raise $20 million in four days in May. The fund’s website currently says that “more than $30 million” has been raised in total since Floyd’s killing by a Minneapolis cop.
On Tuesday, the non-profit tweeted that it had paid out “well over $200k in the weeks since the uprising alone,” and assured followers that it’s “working on doing more.” In a previous tweet, the MFF said it appreciates “all those calling for transparency” and that its “values and mission have not changed since 2016.”
Yet, the relatively small sum spent in comparison to the amount raised caused a major stir on Twitter, with people demanding to know when and how the rest will be spent.
“Where is the other $34,800,000?” one Twitter user demanded to know.
Such a good deal! Why the 'Freedom Fund' is even a non-profit, which means all the loot they scoop is tax-free.
But why no POC on that board?
This gets even better, as one of the board members was outed for telling tall tales about her ethnicity. "Lieawatha, you have some company!"
Don't guess ZNN or the other pseudo-news outlets will touch this story. Can't blame white people for some vague and nefarious happening, so it dies on the news floor.
