A celebrity-backed bail group shut down after a criminal they helped bond out of jail went on to shoot a waiter during an armed robbery.

The Bail Project was funded by bleeding-heart liberal celebrities such as singer John Legend (inset) and actor Danny Glover.

The Bail Project posted a $3,000 bond for burglary suspect Rashawn Gaston-Anderson in December 2021. Just six days later, Gaston-Anderson shot Chengyan Wang 7 times in Chinatown, 8 NewsNow reported.

Democrats have a history of providing comfort and support to criminals in this country.

Wang was a waiter at Shanghai Taste in Las Vegas, when he was shot by Gaston-Anderson during an armed robbery.

Wang has since recovered from his injuries and he filed a lawsuit against the celebrity-backed bail group.

Wang is also suing Gaston-Anderson and Shanghai Plaza owner US Hui De Real Estate Investment Corp. He is seeking over $15,000 in damages from each defendant, the Las Vegas Review-Journal reported.

The bail group announced it was shutting down its operations after Wang filed a lawsuit against them, 8 NewsNow reported.

Gaston-Anderson is a career criminal who pleaded guilty to attempted grand larceny in Las Vegas and was sentenced to 18 months of probation in 2018, according to the NY Post.

The following year, he was convicted of felony burglary in New York, and in 2021 he was convicted of auto theft in Illinois. In November 2021, he also was arrested for pandering and g>8 NewsNow reported.

He was arrested again on burglary and theft charges, and despite his history of violence, he was released after the bail group paid his bond.

In a plea deal reached last month, the 24-year-old was convicted of attempted robbery and mayhem with deadly weapons, according to News 3 Las Vegas.

Gaston-Anderson was sentenced this month to serve 7 to 18 years behind bars for the shooting.
