In audio issued by Project Veritas Action on Sunday, it was announced that South Carolina Democrat State Rep. and US Senate candidate Krystle Matthews pressed Democrats to run as "sleepers," and run as Republicans. The audio came from a recorded conversation between Matthews and an inmate at Perry Correctional Institution, which reportedly occurred on February 15, 2022. The state’s democratic run off election takes place on Tuesday, June 28. [tweet_embed] June 27, 2022[/tweet_embed] "We need some secret sleepers," Matthews was heard stating. "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 proceeded. Later in the conversation, Matthews was heard urging donations to her campaign with funds obtained through illegal activities, like drug sales or straw donations, which according to Project Veritas Action, "are political contributions made to candidates under another name." This action is illegal under 52 USC § 30122 "I still got to struggle to raise money for my campaign, where the f*ck is my black people with money? I don’t care about no dope money, give me that dope boy money!" She announced. "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 sh*t under they names."

Matthews was further heard using racially-charged language throughout the conversation. "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," she announced. Matthews qualified for the state’s Senate Runoff after winning 33.2 percent of the votes in the state’s Democratic primary election.
