Houston activist Candice Matthews has recently made headlines with her controversial actions against the Prairie View City Council. In a video posted to her TikTok account, Matthews can be seen calling out one of the members, David Allen, accusing him of misusing city funds. She claims that the funds were used to purchase lingerie, repair a classic Corvette, and possibly get the vehicle insured. She then proceeded to hold up a red brassiere in the general direction of the crowd.
The video footage also shows members of the council attempting to gain control of the situation, but they were unsuccessful. Matthews is the National Minister of Politics for the New Black Panther Nation and the Statewide/Harris County Accountability Chair for the Texas Coalition of Black Democrats, and she used her platform to call for council members to impeach Allen for his alleged behavior.
In another video posted to her TikTok account, Matthews goes a step further by informing the city council that they would be hit with a federal lawsuit. She then presented three boxes filled with what she claims is damning evidence against them, pulled from a forensic accounting report and correspondence between Matthews and council members. At the end of the video, Prairie View City Council members were served with the federal lawsuit.
Matthews discussed the situation further with Phillip Scott in a segment for African Diaspora News in the Longview News-Journal. She expressed her frustration with people calling her out for “going hard on Black people” by saying, “No, I’m going hard on agents of white supremacy, cause if you doing things and you stealing from your own people and you disenfranchising your own people, you are an agent of white supremacy and I am going to smash the gas on you.”
It is clear that Matthews is determined to bring justice to the people of Prairie View and put an end to the alleged misuse of city funds. As the story continues to unfold, the people of Prairie View will be watching to see if her efforts pay off.
