Candidate Alyse Galvin’s communication director this year was providing pro-bono publicity for the Bail Project, a consortium of groups that are bailing out rioters across the country.
On Instagram, Bridget Galvin shared the helpful list of where to send bail money for rioters in violence-torn cities across America.
Now, it appears that the Bail Project, which appears in several places on the list, is associated with actual riot management activities. It was exposed last week after one of its “bail disruptors” was found to have rented a U-Haul that contained supplies for protesters in Louisville, Kentucky.
As the truck is unloaded, the symbols for Antifa are clear in the protest signs that say Abolish the Police, as shown in the video above.
“So the Bail Project is funding the riots that are destroying our cities,” said Tucker Carlson, on Fox. “The question is, who is funding the bail project?”
While some have pointed to George Soros, it’s clear that people like Galvin, who have supported the project, are actively spreading lists of where people can give to associated groups that are bailing out rioters. The Bail Project claims it has thousands of donors.
Influence Watch lists several liberal/progressive foundations as cornerstone donors:
- Blue Meridian Partners (Non-profit)
- Bohemian Foundation (Non-profit)
- Borealis Philanthropy (Non-profit)
- Cloud Mountain Foundation (Non-profit)
- Leaves of Grass Fund (Non-profit)
- NEO Philanthropy (Non-profit)
- Propel Capital Network (For-profit)
- Silicon Valley Community Foundation (Non-profit)
- Vital Projects Fund (Non-profit)
According to PolitiFact, Holly Zeller, founder of the Louisville Bail Project, had rented the truck on her own time to help with the protests.
“Holly rented the truck in her personal capacity, during her time off, and did not use funds from The Bail Project,” Camilo Ramirez, director of communications for the Bail Project, told PolitiFact. “I watched the video and saw painted signs and water, but of course some people are exploiting the clip to create misinformation and attack our organization.”
None of this would have come to light, but for a reporter from the Daily Caller, who was on the scene, watching as shields, signs, and water were unloaded from the truck near the scene of riots.
PolitiFact describes the social media posts around this incident as “Mostly False,” while at the same time confirming that Zeller rented the truck, and not denying that supplies were unloaded for rioters. Social Media censors at Facebook have taken down posts that refer to the incident, declaring them false.
The organization’s bail fund treasury now stands at $27 million.
Galvin’s mother, Alyse Galvin, is running for Congress with the support of the Alaska Democratic Party, the DNCC, and Speaker Nancy Pelosi.
