ARE WE FINALLY GETTING TO THE TRUE STORY BEHIND THIS GROUP? – OVERNIGHT:  Black Lives Matter is, perhaps, the most famous "charitable" organization to emerge in this country in the last decade.  And yet, many complain that the public doesn't know much about it.  The organization raises millions, but who knows where the money goes?  Now, we find officialdom waking up to the information vacuum and asking questions.  It's about time.  From Daily Caller: 

Washington and California have both recently warned Black Lives Matter Global (BLM) to stop accepting donations due to a lack of transparency in their financial accounting, the Washington Examiner reported Wednesday.

According to a letter acquired by the Washington Examiner, the California Department of Justice has threatened to hold BLM leaders accountable if they do not hand over details regarding the organization’s $60 million it collected in donations within the next 60 days.

“The organization BLACK LIVES MATTER GLOBAL NETWORK FOUNDATION, INC. is delinquent with The Registry of Charitable Trusts for failing to submit required annual report(s),” a portion of the letter reads. “An organization that is delinquent, suspended or revoked is not in good standing and is prohibited from engaging in conduct for which registration is required, including soliciting or disbursing charitable funds.”

The Washington Secretary of State Corporations and Charities Division sent a notice to the organization in early January warning that its registration with the division has been closed, according to the Examiner.

The letter told the organization to “immediately cease” all solicitations.

Charity experts sounded off in May 2021 on BLM’s potential self-dealing in regards to their charity donations, The Daily Caller reported.

BLM has had no recognized leader in command of its donations since its co-founder Patrisse Cullors departed in May, according to the Washington Examiner.

COMMENT:  Nice, huh?  And how many news organizations do you think will actually report this story?  It will probably be buried as quickly as possible by the mainstream – meaning left-wing – media. 

And who gets hurt?  Mostly black folks.  It's always the same story.  People, some well-meaning, some just protecting themselves, pour money into an organization thinking they're helping "the poor."  And the poor don't get helped.  And the donors just "move on" to the next fashionable thing.
