Error: "This constituent has associated revenue and therefore cannot be deleted" when trying to delete a constituent record that had revenue that was posted and later moved to a different constituent

If all revenue is moved from constituent A to constituent B. We can't then delete constituent A as it generates the error, "This constituent has associated revenue and therefore cannot be deleted". This only occurs for posted revenue.
If the revenue associated with Constituent A was posted, then moved to Constituent B Constituent A will still not be able to be deleted, instead they will need to be marked inactive.

8. Lookup the constituent in step 1 and notice there is no revenue on this record.
9. Try to delete the constituent
10. see error This constituent has associated revenue and therefore cannot be deleted.
