Shaun King, an infamous Black Lives Matter (BLM) activist who was a staple on liberal mainstream media networks during some of the earlier social justice riots, seems as if he’s taking a page out of BLM’s playbook regarding how to spend big piles of donor cash inappropriately.
According to Fox News, King’s political PAC, Grassroots Law, reportedly paid an astonishing $40,000+ for a performance dog that King got as a family pet.
A new report this week revealed that King used money from his PAC’s donations to make two payments to Potrero Performance Dogs, one, the first payment, for $10,000, and the second payment of $30,650.
Just a few days after the report says the payments were transmitted, King posted to social media welcoming the new family pet, a “new member of the King family” as he wrote, which turned out to be a Mastiff and prize show dog named Marz.

Interestingly, the dog was reportedly returned by King at some point, as the company from where he purchased it showed the dog winning a prize at an American Kennel Club competition in July.
The company was forced to explain why it once again had the dog, and it wrote that the $40K dog had “a little too much energy to be a family dog so he came back.”
King was brutally mocked across social media for the purchase, which he defended as an alternative to obtaining a gun for self-defense.
One of BLM’s top “activists”, Shaun King recently bought a $40K dog. BLM grifted donations that were used to destroy businesses, attack patriots like myself and buy mansions and expensive dogs for its leaders. BLM will go down as one of the biggest scams in American history!
