BLM Activist Investigated by Federal Probe for Allegedly Stealing from Charity

A high profile member of the Boston-based Black Lives Matter organization with connections numerous to Democrat lawmakers is the target of a federal investigation after allegedly stealing money from her multimillion-dollar charity.

The Washington Examiner reports:

Monica Cannon-Grant, the founder and CEO of the charity group Violence in Boston, rose to prominence in the Boston BLM community after George Floyd’s murder in May 2020. Something of a powerbroker in Boston Democratic politics, she reportedly established a close working relationship with Democratic Rep. Ayanna Pressley and Boston Mayor Michelle Wu when the two served on the Boston City Council. Former Massachusetts Rep. Joe Kennedy III hailed Cannon-Grant’s endorsement of his failed 2020 Senate campaign.

Cannon-Grant acknowledged in a podcast filmed Thursday that she has been under federal investigation since October, when federal authorities arrested her husband and raided their home after he was charged with committing COVID-19 unemployment fraud and mortgage fraud.

Cannon-Grant claimed during her podcast that members of the black community who were jealous of her success  “partnered with white supremacy” in an attempt to take her and her husband down.

“In 2020, we went from a $40,000, $50,000 a year organization to a [multimillion-dollar] organization — more money, more problems,” Cannon-Grant said. “The moment funding started coming in and the world started seeing us doing the work, which prompted awards and accolades, it was, ‘I want what she got. She don’t deserve it.'”

“This is what happens when you’re successful,” she added. “This is what happens when you don’t accept mediocrity. This is what happens when you’re successful and nobody can explain your success because it’s not theirs to explain.”

Federal prosecutors are investigating whether any of the donations provided to Cannon-Grant’s charity were used to pay for her personal expenses, so far investigators have subpoenaed at least one donor.

The one thing she left out – this is what happens when a radical violent group is allowed to extort money from businesses or burns them down with the government siting back waiting to get their share — The corruption goes right to the top

How do you get away with being a criminal? Just join the Democratic Party. Free “get out of jail” cards are given when you register. Just ask any Democrat Politician. If you’re crooked enough you might even get elected Mayor of Chicago or NYC
