Black Lives Matter Executive Accused of Siphoning $10M from Donors

A lawsuit has been filed against an executive at Black Lives Matter Global Network Foundation (GNF), accusing Shalomyah Bowers of siphoning more than $10 million from donors.

The lawsuit is against Bowers, Black Lives Matter GNF, Bowers’ consulting firm, and unnamed individuals, CBS News reported.

“Mr. Bowers and the GNF Leadership Council agreed to execute the transition plan set forth by Ms. Cullors,” the court filing reads. “However, Mr. Bowers, who made $2,167,894 million dollars from GNF in less than eight months, decided he wanted to keep the ‘piggy bank’ that GNF had become to him and his company.”

The suit accuses Bowers of refusing to disclose certain financial information to other group leaders.

“Within months, Bowers had run these well-respected advocates out of the organization,” the suit reads. “Through a series of misrepresentations and unauthorized backroom dealings, Mr. Bowers managed to steal control over GNF as the sole Board member and officer.”

“Mr. Bowers continues to fraudulently raise money from unsuspecting donors passing himself off as the organization that is doing the work of BLM, padding his own pockets at that of his associates at the cost of BLM’s reputation,” the suit said.

Bowers has vehemently denied the allegations, calling them “harmful, divisive, and false.”

    Let’s not forget that up until the early part of 2022, when you went to the Black Lives Matter website and then donated to what you thought was their cause, your donation went to ActBlue, a Democrat PAC. I worked the links numerous times to confirm that until the website finally changed. WHY WAS THIS NEVER NEWS?
