A state’s attorney has filed the most aggressive lawsuit against Black Lives Matter yet.

Indiana Attorney General Todd Rokita on Thursday filed a lawsuit against activist group Black Lives Matter Global Network Foundation (BLM). The case is Rokita’s latest move in his study of the group’s finances and use of donations.

“I sued the Black Lives Matter organization to protect Hoosiers from this house of cards,” Rokita said about the case on social media. “BLM has regarding behavior patterns [and] we will do whatever it takes to get to the bottom of it on behalf of generous Hoosiers who have donated to them. “


The Black Lives Matter Global Network Foundation, the national arm of the Black Lives Matter movement, has come under increasing control over its handling of the tens of millions of dollars it has received in donations.

The lawsuit requires BLM to respond to investigation claims filed in February this year.

“The Office of the Attorney General filed a petition to enforce a civil investigation request seeking an order requiring the BLM to respond to a civil investigation order issued to the organization in February 2022,” the Attorney General’s Office clarified.

BLM secretly bought a mansion for $ 6 million – as the group’s leaders are said to call “Campus” – and have never revealed it to the public. When a magazine inquired into the house, BLM reportedly circulated a note discussing the possibility of trying to “kill” the story.

The purchase of the California house was separated from a transaction in 2021 in which BLM transferred money to a Canadian non-profit organization – run by the wife of BLM co-founder Patrisse Cullors – to buy a house for $ 3 million.

Cullors, which abruptly withdrew from BLM in May 2021 due to increasing scrutiny of the group’s finances, has previously been criticized for live a lavish lifestyle that includes millions of dollars of personal property purchases.

Black Lives Matter told Fox News that it was not aware of Indiana’s request for information from February before the lawsuit was filed, but that the fund is now working with attorneys to “correct the case immediately.”
