What?! A socialist, communist or “activist” — I know, what’s the difference at this point — allegedly used charitable donations for their own benefit? Ya don’t say?!
A 32-year-old man who identifies himself as Sir Maejor Page — his real name is Tyree Conyers-Page — was arrested by the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) recently on charges of fraud and money laundering.
Page allegedly used $200,000 worth of donations that he reportedly solicited himself through Facebook that was supposed to go towards Black Lives Matter (BLM) of Greater Atlanta, according to Fox 5 - Atlanta.
According to Fox News:
Page was arrested in Toledo [Ohio] and released on bond after appearing before a judge via video. He did not immediately return messages Saturday from Fox News.
The Toledo FBI office opened an investigation last year after a cooperating witness submitted a fraud complaint against Page, whose real name is Tyree Conyers-Page, FBI agent Matthew Desorbo said in the complaint[…]
The FBI in Toledo said Page pledged to use those donations "for George Floyd" but instead used the money make purchases related to food, dining, entertainment, clothing, furniture, a home security system, tailored suits and accessories.
Sounds like a case of champagne activism.
Page has reportedly been arrested on multiple occasions for impersonating a police officer.
The red flag in the current charges against Page came when he allegedly used $112,000 of donation money to buy himself a house.
Page created BLM of Greater Atlanta in 2016.
