Krystle Matthews, a Democrat, is vying for South Carolina’s U.S. Senate seat.
Matthews sits in the state legislature for South Carolina’s District 117. She also serves on the military, public and municipal affairs, operations, and management committees.
Matthews claims she is passionate about environmental policy, equal voting rights, affordable housing, and women’s rights.
She is also fervent about keeping white people in their place.
A second set of recordings allegedly showing Matthews speaking negatively about Whites were released.
Project Veritas, a group renowned for its sting operations that surprise liberal politicians, journalists, and others, released a new recording on September 7.
Matthews discussed unethical political fundraising with a state jail inmate, according to a previous tape from two months earlier.
At this week’s video release, Matthews is seen sitting in a café as an audio recording of her discussing Whites is playing.
“You gotta treat them like (expletive). I mean, that’s the only way they’ll respect you. I keep them right here — like under my thumbs. That’s where I keep — like, you have to. Otherwise, they get out of control — like kids,” Matthews allegedly said.

She reportedly also spoke about Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders, a previous Democratic presidential contender.
The recordings, which also include snippets from her earlier conversation with the prisoner, “That was my problem with Bernie, because he was talking to an all-Black crowd, and he was afraid to say Black (expletive).”
It was previously made known what she had said:
“We need some secret sleepers. Like you need, we need them to run as the other side, even though they for our side. We need people to run as Republicans in these local elections. This is the only way you’re going to change the dynamics in South Carolina.”
“She then encourages donations to her campaign from people engaging in illegal activity, including straw donations, which are political contributions made to candidates under another name,” according to Veritas.
“I still got to struggle to raise money for my campaign, where the f*** is my black people with money? I don’t care about no dope money, give me that dope boy money! Where the duffle bag boys? Get you – find me somebody from your family that don’t even know you donating to my campaign and put that s*** under they names.”
Straw donor schemes are prohibited in federal elections in the United States by 52 U.S.C. 30122.
“Honestly, these ain’t the same type of black people that I grew up around. I don’t recognize these black people. So, I black because I don’t understand the type of black that they are. Now, can I talk intelligently? Can I- I could be. Listen, I can move in all kind of circles, but I’m a n**** at heart. I love black people. I feel safest around my people. “
Matthews also supported other electoral crimes, such as swiping other candidates’ signs.
“We need some folks that can wear all black at night and take they f****** yard signs down when they- when they sleeping.”
“A formal statement about the recording would be released at some point soon, said Jay Belton, Matthews’ senior campaign consultant who said he considered Project Veritas to be like the “tabloids,”” according to the Post & Courier.
This summer, Matthews defeated incumbent Republican U.S. Sen. Tim Scott in the Democratic primary. In addition, she is running for re-election to the state House and fending off a Republican challenger for the Ladson district 117 seat.
In the Senate campaign, she will have a difficult time defeating Scott, a popular incumbent in South Carolina, which is predominately Republican. While Matthews’ campaign has had difficulty, Scott has raised tens of millions of dollars to help him win re-election.
Drew McKissick, the chairman of the Republican Party, demanded her resignation when the second video was made public.
He said that“Radical socialist Krystle Matthews has made it clear she is unfit to hold public office. First, she called for ‘dope boy money’ and illegal straw donors to her U.S. Senate campaign, and now we hear her advocating for treating White people ‘like (expletive)’ or otherwise ‘they get outta control like kids.’”
“Matthews apologized after the expletive-laden jailhouse phone call between Matthews and David Solomon Ballard, an inmate at Perry Correctional Institution, was released. She said she regretted her language but also called on Republicans to examine their own alleged misdeeds ahead of the November midterms,” according to the Courier.

A Department of Corrections spokeswoman said prison phone calls involving inmates are considered public record, not protected privacy. The department, however, had no paperwork of someone requesting the recording.
The spokeswoman said law enforcement was made aware of some of the comments made in the discussion during the 43 minute call. No action has been announced. CONTINUE READING…
