California and Washington have ordered Black Lives Matter Global Network to immediately halt fundraising operations.

The Daily Wire reports:

The BLM Global Network Foundation is the legal entity of the national BLM movement and has received tens of millions of dollars in donations in recent years. The foundation took in over $90 million in 2020, the year protests and riots erupted over the death of George Floyd. The organization has since faced backlash from local leaders who claim the umbrella group has been tightfisted and secretive about the mounds of cash it has raised ostensibly for activism.

On Jan. 31st, California’s attorney general sent a letter to the group threatening to hold the organization’s leadership liable if $60 million worth of donations received is not correctly reported within 60 days. [Read Next: Report: BLM at Risk of Losing Tax-Exempt Status]

Weeks earlier on January 5, the Washington Secretary of State Corporations and Charities Division sent a letter to the BLM national group warning that it could face a $2,000 fine for each in-state donation it receives before providing the state with detailed records on the group’s finances.

“Please note that a violation of the Act is also a violation of the consumer Protection Act … and could result in the imposition of injunctions and civil penalties of up to $2,000 per violation,” the letter said, according to The Examiner. “Any organization that solicits and/or collects contributions in violation of the Act and CPA will be reported to the Office of the Attorney General’s Consumer Protection Division for further action.”

Both states banned the group from soliciting and receiving donations from residents within those states until records are received. According to The Examiner, the BLM group is also out of compliance with charity codes in Connecticut, Maine, Maryland, New Jersey, North Carolina, and Virginia.

This isn’t the first time Black Lives Matter Global Network has come under fire for its finances. Other grassroots BLM chapters have accused the national group of not doling out proper funds to grassroots chapters.

    1. aint that the truth,,,,Leo Turell has said for months this was a corrupt group but no one listened to him,,decent black people have nothing to do with this shakedown group

  1. I’m sure BLM is shaking in their boots.
    Idiots all of them! They should all be in jail and the keys thrown away. That would be a good start.

    1. Is Black lives matter an idiotic concept?
      The leadership of the Republican Party is quaking in their boots.
      How many have arrested?
      How many have Trump pardoned?

  2. After all the damage this group, BLM, did, why cannot all the monies they have collected go to the tax payers of the many cities they ruined, with the burning of property, and looting of many businesses, justice will never be until this happens, IMO.

    1. With all the damage the Trumpers did to the Capitol why can’t Trump political donations be used to pay for the damage.
      Justice will never happen until Trump is made to pay.

  3. They will be ok they are funded by Soros…so they don’t need donations..this is the biggest hate group out there….they dont like blacks,yellows,reds or whites…they only like greens…as in money green.

          1. Some may agree with this kkkrap, however, in many cases their hands are tied by the state officials. I.E. CA, OR, NY, WA and the list goes on. Same with the border security.

      1. Soros live in upper New York state, is a neighbor of Bill and Hillary Clinton and Soros’ nephew is married to Chelsea Clinton! Soros pretty much owns the Dem party!

        1. Soros is also a private investor in Jared Kushner’s real estate empire. He sits on both sides of the fence to avoid offending both parties. He has no loyalty to any government or religion other than his own pocket book and how to wield power using money from behind the scenes no matter who’s in control. Though he was born Jewish, he has no affiliation to that religion – he is an aetheist who is power hungry and is a control freak.

          Hence the devil is in the details if you know where to look…..

        2. Stupidity Maxi.
          Hillary, Soros and Trump have houses in Westchester County,
          Westchester County is suburb of New York City, no where near Upstate New york.
          Is your ignorance bliss?

        3. Ignorant Max.
          Chelsea’s husband is not related to George Soros.
          The only thing you need to know about George Soros is that he is a God Damn Jew.
          He is one of sneaky one’s who got away.
          He lied and said he wasn’t a Jew.
          All Jews are liars

      2. Soros is very successful Jewish Capitalist American Citizen who has generously funded democracy movements throughout Eastern Europe for over three decades.
        This thing called Don is an ignoramus.

  4. Well PTL! It is long overdue! BLM/antifa has been given special treatment while officials and law enforcement have looked the other way or given them a light slap on the wrist from day one! If caucasians had done one tenth of the illegal things and crime they would be in jail with the key to their jail cell thrown in the trash! If these or other groups like them are going to live in America it should be under the same laws as everyone else!

  5. I’m shocked that BLM doesn’t simply claim to be a branch of the Bureau of Land Management. Come to think of it, I wonder why Washington and California don’t just claim the same thing. That way, Biden could simply “sniff” it away and take a nap in Delaware. And then, nobody could accuse them of cheating.

  6. How many BLM did Trump have arrested?
    How many J6 has Biden had arrested?
    Who is the law and order President?
    Who is the weak puke?
    (Hint: It is the same guy who hired General Miley.)

  7. during the 2020 election if you typed in antifa it would bring you to Biden/Harris page. And who was the biggest supporters of BLM – Biden/Harris. These are domestic terrorists groups and are given non profit status – REALLY????
