Helping the poor and downtrodden in the black communities?
Not on your life - helping themselves to a luxe lifestyle is more like it.

From RedState - referencing this article at the Boston Globe:

Another Black Lives Matter Scandal Emerges
It might surprise you to learn that Black Lives Matter (BLM) appears to be going through another financial scandal. Well, perhaps after the news exposing the reality that the global organization appears to have gotten funny with the money broke late last year, it might not exactly be a shocker.

The Boston Globe reported about a community organizer in the city who became well-known after organizing protests in the wake of the George Floyd murder. She is now under federal investigation over allegations that she and her husband misused donations given to her nonprofit, Violence in Boston Inc. The author writes:

Monica Cannon-Grant, 41, who started her charity with $1,000 in 2017 and now operates out of a 4,000-square-foot headquarters in Hyde Park, has come under scrutiny as part of an investigation by the US Attorney’s office that led to the October arrest of her husband, Clark Grant, and the raid of their Taunton home.

A federal grand jury issued a subpoena for records from the Suffolk District Attorney’s office, which is one of several public and private entities that donated to the activist’s organization. Investigators are attempting to ascertain whether any of the donations or grant money the organization received were used for personal expenses.

And hubby Clark?

“Federal prosecutors allege he collected $67,950 in COVID-19 pandemic unemployment benefits between May 2020 and September 2021 although he was employed full time during that period, according to a 15-page criminal complaint,”

And this little item:

There isn’t much information on the nonprofit’s finances yet because it has not yet filed tax documentation that is required of public charities.

Remember the line above: Monica Cannon-Grant, 41, who started her charity with $1,000 in 2017  That's four or five years of unfiled returns.  The IRS would come down on me like a house of bricks if I tried to pull that kind of crap on my personal and business accounts let alone a non-profit where the supposed records-keeping is a lot more stringent.

Groups like this get away with literal murder while We The People are treated like domestic terrorists.  Must be nice.
