(RightWing.org) – On Tuesday, March 15, the US Attorney’s Office for the District of Massachusetts announced the indictment of Boston area Black Lives Matter (BLM) activist Monica Cannon-Grant and her husband Clark Grant on fraud charges. The indictment alleges the Grants defrauded donors, mortgage lending companies, grant issuers, and Massachusetts’ Unemployment Assistance Department. Recent news reports revealed several Democratic leaders have links to the Grants.
On March 23, the Washington Examiner published an expansive exposé detailing the two BLM activists’ connections with leading Democrats at the local and national level during the time frame they allegedly committed their crime spree using their Violence in Boston (VIB) non-profit as cover.
