According to a new report from the NY Post, a non-profit tied to BLM co-founder Patrisse Cullors failed to disclose at least $225k in donations.
The group, Dignity and Power Now, started by Cullors claimed it had not received more than 50k in 2016 while raking in at least $225k.
Per the Post report the group “was given $100,000 by the Los Angeles-based Resnick Foundation and $125,000 by the California Initiative, public records for the two donors show.”
“In addition to its apparent failure to disclose the donations to the IRS, Dignity and Power Now did not disclose the cash in its filings to the California Attorney General, which regulates charities in the state,” the report adds.
National Legal and Policy Center chairman Peter Flaherty said “The obvious question is what happened to the money.”
“Given these circumstances, we believe that an audit is in order. Dignity and Power Now purports to speak in the name of the disadvantaged. The IRS must ensure that no one is taking advantage,” Flaherty added.
Cullors has been under scrutiny in the media after it came to light she owned 4 residential homes, including at least one worth over a million dollars in a mostly white neighborhood.
Cullors recently stepped down from the BLM organization.
