    Thereís an old saying: A hit dog will holler.

    Thatís what progressive grifter Shaun King appears to be doing following a Washington Free Beacon report that he used tens of thousands of dollars of donor money from his social justice PAC to buy a purebred dog. King
    defended the purchase in social media posts and vowed to "return the pain
    back to those that have hurt my family."

    The former Bernie Sanders surrogate embarked on his vengeance tour after
    the Free Beacon reported on Monday that Grassroots Law PAC, which King
    founded in 2019 to "elect candidates who are committed to reducing mass incarceration and police violence," paid $40,650 to a California dog
    breeder called Potrero Performance Dogs. King said this week he bought
    Marz for protection "because literal white supremacists have been coming
    to our home."

    There is no indication that the PACís payment is illegal, but it does
    raise questions about whether Kingís organization is using its money as
    donors intended. "This luxury dog expense may not be illegal for a PAC,
    but it shows little respect for King's donors," said Scott Walter, the president of Capital Research Center. The PACís payments to Potrero are
    among its largest expenditures. The PAC has contributed roughly $60,000 to political candidates since 2021.

    King said that Grassroots Law PAC, which "covers all of [his] security
    costs," approved the Marz purchase. He said the expenditure was an
    "affordable" option compared to round-the-clock human security guards,
    though a recent study found that families with licensed security dogs saw
    only a 1.7 percent decrease in property crime.

    Grassroots Law obscured the purpose of the payment to Potrero, labeling
    the expenditure for "contractor services." King did not disclose that his
    PAC paid for Marz when he announced "a new addition to the King family"
    back in February. It is unclear why King, who makes money from speaking
    gigs, book sales, and his media company, did not pay for the dog out of
    his own pocket.

    King confirmed he recently returned Marz back to Potrero. It is unclear
    whether Potrero issued a refund to King, though Grassroots Law PAC has not disclosed any refund payments from the breeder. Potrero showed Marz at an American Kennel Club show last month, where he won Best in Show. It is
    unclear whether Marz will be used for stud services, but puppies of Marzís breed can fetch thousands of dollars each. Potrero charges $4,800 for its Italian mastiff puppies and $6,800 for its "advanced training course."

    King has been dogged for years by allegations of fraud and financial mismanagement at his various social justice endeavors, and has also been
    the source of violent threats that he now decries. A former ally, DeRay Mckesson, accused him of taking money from one of his social justice
    projects. The mother of Tamir Rice, a 12-year-old Ohio boy killed by
    police, accused King of stealing from a fundraiser for her son.

    King falsely accused a white man of murdering a seven-year-old black girl
    in 2018. The man, Robert Cantrell, allegedly received death threats after
    King suggested he was connected to the murder and called him a "racist,
    violent asshole." Cantrellís niece said their family had received threats
    to "rape, torture and murder the women and children in your family."
    Cantrell committed suicide several months later. Two other men were
    sentenced to prison this year for the girlís murder.
