Kim Klacik shot to fame for a viral campaign video during the 2020 elections. She is now suing Candace Owens for defamation.

According to The Baltimore Sun:

Kimberly Klacik, a former Republican congressional candidate in Maryland, is suing conservative commentator Candace Owens for $20 million in damages over an Instagram video Owens made in June in which she alleged Klacik had committed campaign fraud, money laundering, illegally used drugs and was a “madame” of a strip club, according to court documents.

The lawsuit, filed in Baltimore County Circuit Court, alleges Klacik lost a book deal, had politicians cancel fundraising appearances with her and lost a contract with a “nationally recognized vendor,” after Owens posted the video June 22. In the 44-minute Instagram live video, Owens said Klacik’s charity Potential Me was illegitimate, that Klacik was a stripper at a club owned by her husband and that she misused campaign funds, according to the lawsuit.

In the video, Owens says she is “not an investigative journalist,” and “could not confirm” any of the criminal allegations she makes against Klacik. But she went on to accuse Klacik of “money laundering, tax fraud and campaign fraud,” as well as paying vendors to “move money off the books” and working to recruit strippers for a strip club Owens says Klacik’s husband owns, according to the lawsuit.

“Baseless character assassination has no place in political dialogue‚” Klacik’s attorney, Jacob Frenkel, said in a statement. “The defendant chose to use her huge social media platform to attack a respected Baltimore political figure; we are using the proper forum — the power of the courts — to respond. The detail in Ms. Klacik’s lawsuit speaks for itself.”

The lawsuit alleges Owens “continues to support and encourage the harassment” of Kim Klacik.

Why did she take so long to file the suit? To give her time to get rid of any evidence? Just sayin’….

Klacik is the one who shot those amazing campaign videos walking the slum streets of Baltimore, promising to clean up that God-forsaken, Democrat-run hovel. But she may indeed have led a double life. Time will tell.

It only matters if CandIce was speaking the truth, I know Candace to be a well spoken, very intelligent, candidate + voice of reason + common sense!!! Take this to court,
with a lawsuit, and Klacik will lose, and lose bad!!! The
truth shall set you free, in your case, however, it will lock 🔒 you up!!!

Here’s the point: You NEVER see a Demorat suing another Demorat. They all stick together like rates. I am disappointed in these two. I do hope nothing illegal or fraudulent went on.

Yeah, let’s lock up Adam Shift for knowingly lying by saying that because of his access to national secunity briefings that he had hard evidence of Trumps collusion with Russia. A now proven lie and he knew it then. How about all the other lies the Demorats told about Trump and were aided and abided by CNN (COMMUNIST NEW NETWORK), MSNBC, and all the other fake news networks that are still peddling lies about Trump now, even though he is not President anymore. Demorats tell more lies and invent more trash about the opposition than anyone else. They also try to silence their opposition because their position can not stand up under debate or any real scrutiny. In other words they are facists! Tgey are Nazi’s! Communist/socialists! After all, Hitler was a Socialist; Stalin was a communists; Mao Zedong was a communist. All facist dicrators seem to always come from the left… The Democrats are very close to a Dictatorship, they would like nothing more that to make Obama President fo Life. Just like Chinas current leader.
F_ _k Democrats, the only good Democrat is a dead Democrat, but they still manage to vote from the grave, but there is never any voter fraud, just voter suppression. Yes, the dead deserve to vote too stop trying to suppress their vote. Democrats can not win without their vote.

I think Adam Schiff was careful to only state his lies while in Congress, so he cannot be held to account for anything said during speech in Congress. It only emphasizes what a scumbag he is.

Really. Maybe she just doesn’t like the truth spread around. No one knowc what will happen here. Pure speculation but if it’s not the truth, why sue? Hmmm makes one wonder why people do things and think they won’t get away with it. If it’s true then that one Candace is taking about needs to be investigated if not ignore and move on.

I donated to Klacik’s campaign. If she’s such a “well-respected Baltimore politician” then why did she lose her only race to a total POS? Obviously not VERY respected.

Knowing what I know about Candace, I can’t for a second think she’d be disparaging a fellow female/black/Republican if there wasn’t pretty good evidence of her claims. What would she have to gain?
