You remember her… the attractive black woman in a sexy red dress and stilettos walking down a Baltimore slum street, telling us why folks should vote her into Congress.

In case you’ve forgotten…

Well it seems that Candace Owens has done a little investigative research and found out that Mizz Kim Klacik isn’t as she presents herself.

Brian Cates caught it and wrote a ton about it and more…

Cates:

So what Candace Owens is saying in that video is that when she looked at the Klacik campaign’s FEC filings, they make a series of $100,000+ payments to various  vendors for ‘meet and greet’ events. That seemed kind of excessive for a meet and greet, so she took a close look at one of them. Turns out the vendor is a defunct real estate company and the person listed in the company filing is a disbarred lawyer who has no license. So first impression? That certainly does look like the classic fake vendor scam.  Will await further developments.

So I see comments like “Wow I wish it wasn’t Candace Owens that uncovered all of this. I don’t like Candace Owens.”  Yeah? So?  Why should I care? If in fact Klacik managed to hide the fact she was a longtime stripper in Baltimore while running for Congress, and then after the election  managed to launder hundreds of thousands of dollars back to herself through fake vendors is that a story or not?

Let me tell you what happens when you fail to vet your candidates seriously. You have people show up who win primaries literally coming out of nowhere who end up siphoning off millions of dollars from winnable races while proceeding to lose to the incumbent Democrat by 20 + points. From what I’m seeing now, more than enough people in Baltimore knew Klacik was a fringe candidate and she was never taken seriously inside the city. BUT people outside Baltimore did not know this.  Nationally she drew in over 6 million dollars. The fact she’s a former stripper and her husband was her manager and running the club she stripped in is relevant and don’t let idiots claim any differently to you. Voters need to be making informed decisions. When you are presented with a candidate where key parts of their past is being deliberately hidden from you, you are not making an informed decision about who to donate your money too or vote for.

In 2022 and 2024 we had better be doing a far better job vetting candidates before the primary elections are held. All it takes is 4-5 fringe candidates sneaking into winnable congressional races, siphoning off $4 million here, $5 million there, and once again, vulnerable Democrat seats are easily held. I think Trump knows all about this problem, which is why I hope the base is paying attention over the next 17 months as Trump builds his MAGA slate of candidates. You may not fully understand WHY he’s endorsing that guy over there, the GOP moderate, instead the HOT NEW PERSON who came out of nowhere and is riding a wave of national MAGA donations due to a slick PR campaign.

If even 1/2 of what she says in this video is true HOLY CRAP.  Candace Owens alleges that not only is Kim Klacik a former stripper, she’s uncovered the fact through her investigation that the Klacik campaign used the ‘fake vendor’ scam to launder hundreds of thousands of dollars of the money donated to her political campaign.

What is the fake vendor scam? That’s when a PAC or political campaign uses a fake company to launder donated money.  Say you got $200,000 in donations and you want to launder $60,000 of that back to yourself under the table. Here’s what you do: you find a fake company set up by a crook -usually a lawyer! – where they provide some supposed services to you and the crook takes an agreed-upon cut of the money and returns the rest to you under the table.

I actually helped expose a Conservative PAC that was using a fake vendor scam back in 2018.  It was called The MAGA Coalition.  It held a few events, raised $280,000 from donations.  And all it ever seemed to do was hold 1-2 events a year where people like Diamond & Silk or Sarah Palin spoke.  Where’d all the money go? I took a look at the MAGA Coalition’s FEC filings.

I’m going to tell a story with some screenshots from my old Twitter account from back in 2018 where I broke the story about who the MAGA Coalition found to help them launder at least $60,000 back to themselves:

First, I established exactly who Gregory Ciccone was.

Then I established that almost immediately upon his release from prison, Ciccone suddenly was the CEO of a new ‘event planning’ business.

I then showed how, according to the MAGA Coalition’s FEC filings, it had paid $60,000 for ‘event planning services’ to Ciccone.

When this information went public, Gingrich and others involved in the MAGA Coalition came after me. They went digging into my past and tried to discredit me.  However: the facts did not change.

Fun postscript: While I was investigating Ciccone and just how much money the MAGA Coalition had given his event planning company, Seb Gorka came aboard as their new spokesman.  Since he followed me on Twitter, I reached out to Dr. Gorka and warned him that the PAC had major financial red flags, not the least of which was that it couldn’t seem to find a treasurer and it’s FEC filings were always late or incomplete.  He quickly bailed.

That’s Dr. Gorka on the right. On the left is Adam Gingrich, creator and chief officer of The MAGA Coalition.
