REPORT: DC seeks to freeze LGBT group’s assets, alleging stunning case of misuse of government funds

As the most reliable and balanced news aggregation service on the internet, DML News App offers the following information published by WashingtonExaminer:

The owner of an LGBT nonprofit organization in Washington has denied allegations of misusing government funds after the district’s attorney general issued an order to freeze the group’s financial accounts earlier this week.

District Attorney General Karl Racine filed for a restraining order Monday against Casa Ruby, one of the district’s most prominent nonprofit organizations aimed at providing temporary housing to LGBT youth. The order seeks to freeze the organization’s financial accounts so that its founder, Ruby Corado, can’t withdraw or transfer funds under the group’s name until a superior court judge can establish a new receiver.

The article goes on to state the following:

Corado, a biological male who identifies as a transgender woman, stepped down as Casa Ruby’s executive director in the fall. However, Corado remains the sole person who can authorize access to the organization’s bank records and financial accounts, according to the lawsuit.


The report explains that the organization, Casa Ruby, raked in over $9.6 million in grants from the federal government over the past five years, but its executive board has never even held a meeting and did not document any activity between 2012 to 2020. It reportedly ceased operations in July.

However, Corado has remained in full control of the organization’s financial accounts, despite announcing his resignation, and has allegedly continued to write checks and withdraw funds, including over $60,000 he withdrew to pay his personal credit card bills.

Corado also allegedly used the money on meals and transportation while on a trip to El Salvador.

Attorney General Karl Racine announced in a statement: “Instead of fulfilling its important mission of providing transitional housing and support to LGBTQ+ youth, Casa Ruby diverted hundreds of thousands of dollars in District grants and charitable donations from their intended purpose. Their Executive Director appears to have fled the country, withdrawn at least tens of thousands of dollars of nonprofit funds, and has failed to pay employees and vendors money they are rightfully owed.”

Racine announced on Wednesday, “Today, the court granted our motion to freeze Casa Ruby’s accounts & ensure Ruby Corado is no longer able to withdraw funds. This is the first step in our effort to hold Casa Ruby’s leadership accountable and prevent further loss of money intended to help LGBTQ+ youth.”

Corado denies he took any money, blaming the federal government for not paying them enough.  He told Telemundo, “Because they couldn’t deal with a transgender Latina having a platform in the nation’s capital and making a decent living.”

In the video below, Corado gives a TED talk in May 2018. In the YouTube video description, Tedx Talks writes the following glowing account:

Ruby Jade Corado is a social justice advocate who has fought for 20 years for LGBT human rights, transgender liberation, immigration equality, access to healthcare, and many other issues. After fleeing her home country of El Salvador amidst a civil war at 16 years old, she moved to Washington, D.C. where she has lived for 27 years. Her work has earned her awards ranging from a 2005 Capital Pride Heroes award, a 2013 Gays and Lesbians Opposing Violence award, among others. She was named one of the 25 Most Influential Latino LGBT activists by Latino Voice in 2009 and has been featured by news outlets like the Washington Post, NPR, News Week, and more. In addition to her service work, Ruby is a bilingual inspirational speaker and a nationally recognized sensitivity trainer.

    • Incredible. Another dude wearing lipstick, wig and a dress collecting nearly $10 million in taxpayer funds.

      If there were any accountability in this country, whoever gave it/him/her/them the funds to begin with shd be driven from office and jailed.

  1. Why are we giving tax dollars to such a group to begin with? I don’t want my tax dollars going to this. Why so much money who wold think anyone would embezzle that kind of money.

  2. Another Democrat funded liberal POS stealing tax payer $$$ go figure all in the name of the Fraudulent LGTBQ movement. Sick and twisted fake MF’ers. All of them. they should all be put in Jail the Pedo’s

  3. Why are we the tax payers funding such crap when there are homeless adults and child out there that need help? We have veterans that really need help after defending our freedom and our country. And we’re giving tax payer money to people that can’t decide which bathroom to use???? I don’t want my money going to them!!!

  4. “Because they can’t deal with a transgender Latina (sp) having a platform”? It’s DC! You do t *get* more progressive, left wing than the Capital! Not a good argument, dude. I think it’s amazing the AG is actually doing his job. That’s astonishing!

  5. All of these “so called” victims of discrimination seem to always get caught stealing government funds and our taxpayers dollars. Throw the book at them, then, go after the BLM funding fraud! Why has BLM not been prosecuted yet! What are they waiting for? Hell has already frozen over! 😡

    We don’t get federal grant money…
    We have poor families that would love to go to a doctor to get the (proper) medication for their health issues. But our government turns a blind eye and says go to work and pay it yourself…
    but let us holler we are queers and lesbians and don’t know if we pee sitting down or standing up… We can get all the government aid that anyone can make up
