BLM shuts down fundraising after threat by California AG for abuse of $60 million in donations

1 min read

Black Lives Matter is under fire again, this time from the California Attorney General’s Office. Attorney General Rob Bonta threatened to revoke the organization’s charitable status after failing to file multiple annual reports. The Attorney General went further saying he would hold Black Lives Matters leaders personally liable for the organization’s blatant lack of fiscal transparency.

Last year, Patrisse Khan-Cullors, the founder of Black Lives Matter resigned after it was disclosed that she used public donations to the charity to purchase four homes. Now, the AG is looking into how $60,000,000 in donations were spent by the organization.

The group is also being investigated in Indiana where Attorney General Todd Rokita said BLM is refusing to provide the state with the requested information, indicating a disturbing and possibly criminal pattern.

“It appears that the house of cards may be falling, and this happens eventually with nearly every scam, scheme, or illegal enterprise,” Rokita, a Republican, said in an interview with the Washington Examiner. “I see patterns that scams kind of universally take: failure to provide board members, failure to provide even executive directors, failure to make your filings available. It all leads to suspicion.”
