Kimberly Klacik, a former Republican congressional candidate in Maryland, is suing Conservative commentator Candace Owens for a whopping $20 million in defamation damages. Yikes!
According to court documents, she is suing in response to a video that Owens made back in June that alleges Klacik laundered money, committed campaign fraud, used illegal drugs, and was also the "madame" of a strip club.
Maryland’s Kim Klacik sues conservative commentator Candace Owens for defamation, asks for $20 million in damages https://t.co/5iJKKw184I

Filed in Baltimore County Circuit Court, the suit claims that, after Owens posted the video, Klacik ''lost a book deal, had politicians cancel fundraising appearances with her and lost a contract with a ‘nationally recognized vendor,''' according to The Baltimore Sun. The suit also states that Owens' video said that Klacik was a stripper at a club her husband owned, that Klacik's charity Potential Me was illegitimate and that Klacik misused campaign funds.
The Sun added that Klacik's feud with Owens began on Twitter with a disagreement over President Joe Biden's decision to make Juneteenth a federal holiday.
Klacik's attorney, Jacob Frenkel, said in a statement that ''baseless character assassination has no place in political dialogue. 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.''
I liked Klacik for Congress. She seemed like a good, strong candidate. However, I have also not seen Candace Owens make empty claims that she could not back up. I can't help but wonder who will come out on top in this legal battle. Either way, it is likely going to get ugly.

On Thursday, Senator Ted Cruz slammed House Speaker Nancy Pelosi on the Senate floor, declaring that she is drunk on power with her new mask mandates. Power isn't the only thing she is drunk on...I'd say there is some vodka in the mix too.

He reads it, and then promptly wipes his chin. However, he then holds the note where the camera can see it at different points. Once, it even faces the camera directly.
