Indiana Attorney General Todd Rokita is on the Black Lives Matter case, going so far as to file a lawsuit to dig deeper into the organization’s murky use of donations – which he says is part of a “concerning pattern of behavior”.

Rokita told “Fox & Friends Weekend” host Will Cain on Sunday that his lawsuit stemmed from accusations that the organization’s leaders misused donation funds by secretly buying a lavish $6 million mansion. dollars and funding the oddly extravagant lifestyle of co-founder Patrisse Cullors.

“In February when we heard this news about mansion buying allegations and all that, a lot of people said ‘hey, we’ll look into it’ – well, we are, we did. and we will continue until we get the cooperation and we get the facts,” Rokita said.

Rokita added that he thinks many “woke” companies that have donated to Black Lives Matter want him to cancel the ordeal.

“For the woke society that has given millions of dollars and others to the left, they should know that I’m not going to give up,” he said.

“I think they’d rather we forget that episode, forget the mansions, forget everything else – and we’re not because we can’t be so gullible anymore.”
