Shaun King's Grassroots Law political action committee (PAC) campaign finance disclosures seem to show he paid roughly $40,000 to buy a dog bred by Potrero Performance Dogs, the Washington Free Beacon reports.
Grassroots Law PAC, which "helps to elect candidates who fight to end oppressive policing, incarceration, and injustice" paid $10,000 to Potrero in December, and $30,650 in February.
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.
The PAC spent roughly $56,000 on political candidates in 2021 compared to reportedly $40,650 on King's dog.
After all that, it looks like King returned the dog to Potrero...
While King said Marz would provide "alertness and protection" alongside duties as a family pet, it appears the thoroughbred is no longer in the activist's care. Potrero Performance Dogs showed Marz at an American Kennel Club competition earlier this month, where he won Best in Show. The breeder said in a social media post this month that Marz was back in its care because "he's got a little too much energy to be a family dog so he came back."
