The Texas Supreme Court rejected a request from Texas state House Democrats Monday to overturn Gov. Greg Abbott’s (R) veto on funding for the state’s legislature.

The petition was filed in June and it argued that Abbott’s veto was unconstitutional. It also stated that his veto violated the separation of powers between branches of government.

Democrats are losing their minds on Twitter with the loss but

The governor’s veto came after a group of state Democrat lawmakers left Texas to prevent the passage of voting legislation. They were wrapped up in scandal after taking a selfie on the plane maskless only to end up spreading COVID-19 among several of the legislators.

BLM co-founder used funds to pay sister, mother, brother and child’s father

Released tax filings show just how Black Lives Matter co-founder Patrisse Cullors spent the millions of dollars raised from “White guilt.” She paid roughly $970,000 to the company of her child’s father to help “produce live events” and other “creative services.”

Over $840,000 was paid to her brother, Paul Cullors, for security services. Daily Mail wrote that “leaders have attempted to justify” the expenses to her brother by saying the “foundation’s protection could not be entrusted to former police professionals who typically run security firms because the BLM movement is known for vehemently protesting law enforcement organizations.”

It was recently disclosed that she bought a $6 million mansion in L.A. for the organization, and denied she took money from BLM for personal matters, although shortly after it was unearthed that she had used the mansion for her own parties.

Cullors also reportedly “reimbursed BLM $73,523 for a charter flight for foundation-related travel, which the organization says she took in 2021 out of concern for COVID-19 and security threats.”

Cullors resigned last year from the organization due to criticism of her finances, such as purchasing multiple homes for herself that cost millions of dollars combined. She also admitted the charity was paying for “employment” of her sister, mother, and brother.

Black Lives Matter Global Network Foundation Inc revealed from July 1, 2020 to June 30, 2021, it ended the fiscal year with nearly $42 million in net assets. “The foundation invested $32 million in stocks from the $90 million it received as donations amid racial justice protests in 2020” adds Daily Mail.
