On Wednesday, Project Veritas released a new undercover video of the already-controversial U.S. Senate candidate Krystle Matthews (D-SC) making racist comments about white people, and saying that you “gotta treat them like sh*t.”

In the video, Matthews is recorded talking to an undercover Project Veritas journalist in what appears to be a restaurant.

The U.S. Rep openly admits her bias against white voters, saying, “Let me tell you one thing. You oughta know who you’re dealing with, like… you gotta treat them [white people] like sh*t… that’s the only way they’ll respect you.”

“I keep them right here, like under my thumbs,” she continues. “That’s where I keep it, like… you have to, like, otherwise they get outta control like kids.”

Laughing, Matthews adds, “I know other people are tip-toeing around them. And I’m like, ‘yo, that’s some white sh**. I ain’t doing that.'”



Back in June, Matthews faced public scrutiny for a leaked phone call between herself and prison inmate David Soloman Ballard, in which she advocates for illegal election strategies for her U.S. Senate bid.

In the audio recording, Matthews revealed her frustration that more “black people” weren’t financially supporting her campaign, and said she welcomes stolen money and drug money into her campaign funds.

“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.”

Matthews even admitted to wanting to get people to steal opponents’ yard signs at night. “I need some folks that can wear all black at night and take they f***ing yard signs down when they are sleeping!” she said.

The senatorial candidate also went as far as to suggest the use of “sleepers” to “wreak havoc” and “flip some sh*t from the inside out.”

“We need people to run as Republicans in these local elections,” said Matthews, suggesting that people run as Republicans, but are secretly Democrats, and will flip after they get elected.
