The US Attorney continues to investigate the violence in Boston, a group linked to many politicians

Federals are continuing their investigations into the “Boston violence” leader’s case, the US attorney’s office confirmed, a day after the director of the politically-related nonprofit was arrested.

Violence In Boston founder Monica Cannon Grant was husband Clark Grant on Tuesday pinched by the feds On epidemic unemployment and mortgage fraud charges.

Grant is accused of making Fraudulent claims to help fight epidemics and their incorporation into the mortgage application for their residence in Taunton. Cannon Grant has not been charged, and the search warrant remains sealed.

“This is an ongoing investigation,” a spokesman for the US Attorney’s office said on Wednesday.

Violence in Boston—specifically Canon Grant, whom the Boston Globe once declared “the best person in Boston”—is heavily implicated in the city’s politics, including relationships with both candidates for mayor.

Cannon-Grant supports Michelle Wu, the frontrunner in the mayoral race, and she posted her support for Wu on the Violence In Boston Facebook page.

Asked about the charges against Cannon Grant’s husband and alleged involvement in the Boston Violence money, Wu told reporters, “It’s an unfortunate situation. When something like this happens, I’ll follow up to see what happens with this investigation, but I know there has been work.” Well this organization has done in the community.”

But the Boston Violence Facebook page also lists mayor contender Anisa Al-Sibi George, a multi-term senior city councillor like Wu, as giver of two different events, focused mostly on providing food.

Al-Seby George’s campaign declined to comment.

Cannon-Grant also included donations from then-mayor Martin Walsh, state representatives Liz Miranda and Sheena Tyler, and city councilor Julia Mejia. The Boston violence even opened a Hyde Park office with Walsh’s help.

Cannon-Grant started small, promoting anti-violence efforts and distributing food to those in need. But her profile skyrocketed amid protests in 2020 over racial issues, culminating when she organized a 20,000-strong protest in Franklin Park in which she yelled to a crowd that chanted, “F-Police.” Subsequently, the Globe newspaper called her the “Best Personality in Boston”.
