Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) on Monday announced on social media that she hung a “new sign outside” of her “office” that displays a tweet posted by then-Senator Kamala Harris (D-CA) during the 2020 BLM riots in Minnesota that caused $1-2 billion in damage to 1,500+ properties.
“Since the Democrats are obsessed with investigating 1 riot, even though all the people involved have been arrested and charged and some are still rotting pretrial in jail, this is my new sign outside my office,” the Georgia lawmaker wrote on Twitter, including the picture of her new sign.
During the summer of 2020, Kamala Harris posted on Twitter June 1, 2020, “If you’re able to, chip in now to the @MNFreedomFund to help post bail for those protesting on the ground in Minnesota”.

In addition to Harris, numerous Biden staffers promoted the Minnesota Freedom Fund during the George Floyd riots. According to a Reuters report, “At least 13 Biden campaign staff members posted on Twitter [last summer] 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.”

FOX 9 reported that MFF had raised $35 million in the wake of George Floyd’s death in the custody of the Minneapolis Police Department. A recent update on its website indicates that it has spent at least $3,475,000 bailing people out of jail in recent months, with just $210,000 of that being spent bailing out protesters and rioters who were arrested in the unrest immediately following Floyd’s death.
Harris also shared a video of herself wearing a mask and taking part with protestors in 2020:
