Candace Owens appeared on Fox News Wednesday to call out a racist attack on California gubernatorial candidate Larry Elder. She called the moment and subsequent lack of coverage “absolutely infuriating.” Elder was walking down a street in Los Angeles when a woman in a monkey mask threw an egg at him. The entire exchange is caught on video.
“I know Larry Elder, he’s a friend and a mentor. He’s a member of the board of my foundation,” Owens said. Her foundation, BLEXIT, is the anti-Black Lives Matter, advocating for Black people leaving the movement. “If this is on the other side, if a white woman wearing a monkey mask through an egg at a black democratic candidate this would be wall-to-wall coverage. Actually this might actually constitute a hate crime in Los Angeles.”
Larry Elder is the Republican candidate in the California recall election. Californians will vote on September 14th whether to remove current Governor Gavin Newsom and replace him with Elder or leave Newsom to finish his term. Elder has drawn attention because of his policies, including eliminating the minimum wage.
“She needs to be arrested and charges need to be brought, I’m not sure why she was wearing the monkey mask, I have no idea why she was wearing it but I would like to see more information about that,” Owens said.
Now, the election is already facing calls for an audit due to a software breach. Eight election security experts demanded that California’s Secretary of State Shirley Weber immediately audit the results of the recall election.

FBI punishing employees who attended Jan 6 rally by revoking security clearances
The official Twitter account of the GOP House Judiciary Committee released an alarming warning: “Whistleblowers alert that the FBI appears to be attempting to terminate the employment of employees who were engaged in protected First Amendment activity on January 6, 2021.”

A letter from ranking member of the House Judiciary Committee, Congressman Jim Jordan (R-OH), to FBI Director Christopher Wray, addresses how several whistleblowers exposed the FBI of stripping employees of security clearances.
The letter cites claims of multiple whistleblowers who say the FBI has been purposely punishing those who attended then-president Donald Trump’s “Stop the Steal” rally on January 6, 2021, by revoking their clearances. Reportedly many of them did not even enter the U.S. Capitol.
“While FBI employees may not participate in partisan political campaigns, [they] do not give up their rights to engage in political speech activity,” wrote Jordan. “We have serious concerns that the FBI appears to be retaliating against employees for engaging in political speech disfavored by FBI leadership,” he added.
The primary whistleblower is described as a 20-year veteran of the FBI and U.S. military. Jordan believes the FBI’s actions could potentially result in the administrative extermination of the individuals’ employment because the FBI requires top-secret security clearances for majority of its employees.
Jordan has required that the FBI brief the committee on the security clearances matter by May 20.
