Violence In Boston INC Forced To Cancel Turkey Giveaway After Monica Cannon-Grant’s Husband’s Arrest For Misusing Nonprofit Funds
Breaking News: Monica Cannon-Grant’s Violence in Boston INC has cancelled their Turkey Giveaway after Director Clark Grant was arrested for attempting to use half a million dollars in donated money to obtain a mortgage for a new house in Taunton.
Yesterday we published a blog about a former VIB employee, who amongst other things accused Monica of raising $17K for the turkey drive last year that she pocketed.
Monica had been pimping out the turkey drive this year hard, getting Devon McCourty and others to help her promote it.

It’s unknown if this is a result of the federal government freezing VIB’s bank accounts, but the timing makes that seem likely.
For the record, the “company” mentioned in the criminal complaint that was paying Clark Grant while he was collecting unemployment was the MBTA, where he works fixing train tracks in Hyde Park – less than a mile from VIB headquarters. It was initially speculated that he was being paid by VIB because it lists him as working 20 hours a week on their Secretary of State’s website.Grant-Clark-criminal-complaint
Also, Monica mentioned in her last Facebook post that the police were “searching for firearms that don’t exist.”
That may have been a result of this tweet from August, in which she threatened a black man for the crime of interviewing me on the Live Show.
A lot of people would’ve given up reporting on Monica Cannon-Grant after it became clear that the most powerful people in Boston had her back, regardless of how many threats and racist comments she made in public. But we never stop until bad guys end up in the Turtleboy graveyard. This will be my most satisfying addition.
