Black Lives Matter leaders are ‘jumping ship’ as ‘Millions’ of dollars unaccounted for

Washington Examiner Investigation has found quite a few oddities with the well-known Black Lives Matter group:

No one appears to have been in charge at Black Lives Matter for months. The address it lists on tax forms is wrong, and the charity’s two board members won’t say who controls its $60 million bankroll.

Last year BLM’s executive director Patrisse Cullors stepped down after allegations that she spent millions of BLM funds on her personal and extravagant properties, amounting to $3.2 million. “Reports followed BLM’s disclosure in February 2021 that it closed out 2020 with $60 million in its bank accounts” reports the Examiner.

Although BLM denied Cullors used money for personal gain, “BLM and other activist organizations under Cullors’s control offered contracts to an art company led by the father of her only child, the Daily Caller reported.”

Cullors announced her resignation in May and the two activists she appointed to serve as the group’s senior directors following her resignation announced they never took the job.
BLM denied allegations that Cullors spent BLM funds on her personal properties. However, BLM and other activist organizations under Cullors’s control offered contracts to an art company led by the father of her only child, the Daily Caller reported.
The Examiner reports:

While a charity’s finances are ultimately the responsibility of its board of directors, BLM’s bylaws explicitly state that its executive director “shall have charge of all funds and securities of the Corporation.”

The two remaining BLM board members, Shalomyah Bowers and Raymond Howard, did not return numerous requests for comment asking who has been in charge of BLM and its money since Cullors left the charity in May.
Bowers served as the treasurer for multiple activist organizations run by Cullors, including BLM PAC and a Los Angeles-based jail reform group that paid Cullors $20,000 a month and dropped nearly $26,000 for “meetings” at a luxury Malibu beach resort in 2019.

Bowers declined to comment when reached by phone on Monday.
Howard has spoken openly on Facebook about his work with BLM and his close relationship with Cullors, but he appears to have recently taken steps to conceal his role with the charity.

    Clearly they are only about enriching themselves, and to hell with everyone else.

    Imagine that!
    No one can account for the money doled out indiscriminately without accountability!
    But then that’s the nature of government and nonprofits isn’t it
