Man, this one’s ruff…
Let’s learn a bit about Grassroots Law Project founder and K-9 conman Shaun King by selecting, generously, from the blurb provided by his organization’s own website.
“Recently hailed by Time Magazine as one of the 25 Most Influential People in the World on the Internet, Shaun King is a skilled organizer and is the Co-Founder of Real Justice, which has helped elect brave new District Attorneys all over the country.”
“Brave new District Attorneys” like San Francisco’s Chesa Boudin, who was recalled for being absolutely awful at his job and incapable of controlling the skyrocketing violent crime in his city.
“Republicans, the police union, and the ultra-wealthy are banding together to overturn the results of the free and fair election of Chesa Boudin,” King said during Boudin’s recall. “They want to roll back his progress on creating real public safety solutions, reducing incarceration, and holding police accountable.”
Or, and stay with me on this Shaun, Chesa was overwhelmingly disliked for his soft-on-crime policies —policies that made the (very expensive) streets of San Francisco extremely unsafe.
Now, a bit about King’s organization, the Grassroots Law Project. Again, from the website…
“The truth is that most change happens at the local level,” the website states. “While federal action is important, we support candidates at every level who advance justice for their communities. The hundreds of local, state, and federal systems that make up our criminal legal system are administered by people in positions of power who have shown they are willing to do whatever it takes to maintain these systems, so it is more important than ever that we replace these bad actors.”
“Bad actors” —let’s go with that, Mr. King, shall we?
According to The Washington Free Beacon, “Grassroots Law PAC, which the progressive grifter (King) founded to elect soft-on-crime local officials, paid roughly $40,000 since December to the California-based Potrero Performance Dogs, according to campaign finance disclosures. The payments are labeled for ‘contractor services,’ making their purpose difficult to discern. But days after a $30,650 payment in February, King welcomed a ‘new member of the King family’: an award-winning mastiff bred by Potrero named Marz.
(NOTE: there used to be a hyperlink in that sentence, but the content has since “disappeared.”)
“This luxury dog expense may not be illegal for a PAC, but it shows little respect for King’s donors,” said Scott Walter of Capital Research Center, which investigates left-wing groups.
Grassroots Law PAC, aims to “elect candidates who are committed to reducing mass incarceration and police violence” —but has spent nearly as much on King’s dog as it has on political candidates, WFB reports.
“The PAC has contributed around $56,000 to political candidates since 2021. It paid $10,000 to Potrero in December and another $30,650 on Feb. 16,” WFB confirms.
Sounds like King is the bad actor that needs replacing.
