He spent the money himself.
(Big League Politics) – The FBI has arrested an Atlanta-area Black Lives Matter activist, alleging that he’s spent more than $200,000 in donations from supporters of the street riot movement on personal luxuries.
32-year old Maejor Page, whose legal name is Tyree Conyers-Page, was arrested in Toledo, Ohio earlier this week and charged with one count of wire fraud and two counts of money laundering.
Page founded an organization called Black Lives Matter of Greater Atlanta in 2016. He proved to be immensely successful in soliciting donations to the group in the months of June, July and August this year, raking in a massive $466,000 from supporters of the movement. But federal charging documents are accusing him of spending more than half of the money on personal luxury goods, such as food, dining, entertainment, clothing, furniture, a home security system, tailored suits and accessories.
Page also allegedly used the donation money to purchase a house in Toledo last month, spending $112,000 on the purchase.
Black Lives Matter of Greater Atlanta is not legally eligible to solicit donations, having lost its charity tax-exempt status in 2019 for failing to file the necessary paperwork.
If proven guilty, Page will become the latest Black Lives Matter fraudster to have utilized the street riot movement for cynical purposes of personal enrichment. Activists such as Shaun King have been repeatedly assailed for highly suspicious fundraising and spending practices, providing little to no answers as to what they’re doing with large sums of money they raise from gullible liberals.
Remarkably, Page has a criminal history that includes multiple charges of impersonating a law enforcement officer in Georgia.
