Former GOP Congressional Candidate Kim Klacik Sues Candance Owens

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.

If I should have to decide which of these women were telling the truth I am afraid, even without reading the evidence, that I would choose Candace. In fact I wish that someday she would at minimum run for Vice President. Hopefully as soon as possible. She is probably one of the most intelligent young person that I have had the privilege to hear!

Klacik has admitted that she worked as a stripper, that she hired a Democrat as a campaign manager, and there is evidence of financial weirdness. So I believe you make a good point.

I like Candace Owens but she should not have made allegations without any proof. There is too much of that going on. If these allegations turn out not to be true, she has ruined a persons career over falsehoods.

Conservatives don’t need this, it must be resolved quickly so we have facts to go on.

The court case will force Candace to hire investigators who will be able to confirm that what Candace said about Klacik is absolutely true, and Klacik will lose the case and everyone will know that what Candace said was true.

Klacik’s lawyers are hoping Candace does not want the negative publicity and will agree to a payout in lieu of court.

I hope Candace fights it!

Maybe we Repubs should not be “shooting” each other! What’s wrong with Candace? Why’d she do that?

Because Klacik is not a republican, she is an opportunist. The funny thing in this is, when I first saw Klaciks’ ad I wondered why she would choose to dress like a prostitute.

BECAUSE “Klacik has admitted that she worked as a stripper, that she hired a Democrat as a campaign manager, and there is evidence of financial weirdness.” and some people – like myself – do not want someone like her to represent me… why don’t you check the facts BEFORE complaining?

Let’s hope Klacik becomes a falling star,and this lawsuit gets tossed. Or better yet, the allegations are proven,and Klacik slithers back where she came from.
