Top RFK Jr Advisor Quits Campaign, Cites ‘Increasingly Hateful and Divisive Atmosphere’

A top adviser to Robert F. Kennedy Jr. has issued a damning statement to announce she is leaving the independent presidential candidate’s campaign.

Angela Stanton King cited an “increasingly hateful and divisive atmosphere” as the reason for her departure.

As The Hill reported, this is likely a setback for the third-party bid as it accelerates its efforts to gain access to the ballot across the country.

Angela Stanton King, who was in charge of black voter engagement for the campaign, stated that Kennedy’s candidacy “no longer aligns with my values.”

In a post on social media, Stanton King wrote:

“After much reflection, I’ve decided to step away from the political theater.

“I will continue to advise RFK Jr. on key community issues.

“Now, it’s time for me to pursue peace and fully dedicate myself to nonprofit work, supporting pregnant women and returning citizens,” she continued.

“This new chapter excites me, as I focus on making a tangible difference where it’s needed most.”

Stanton King was a prominent counsel to Kennedy on the issue of abortion.

The issue is anticipated to gain a significant amount of attention in battleground areas this November.

Kennedy and his running mate, far-left activist Nicole Shanahan, have been subjected to a great deal of scrutiny from critics due to their contradictory statements regarding abortion rights.

After being urged by Shanahan and Stanton King, Kennedy modified his position earlier this month to favor some restrictions on access to abortion treatment.

Prior to this, Kennedy provoked a backlash when stated that there should be no federal restrictions on the availability of abortions.

As Slay News reported, RFK Jr. argued that abortion should be legal up until birth with “no restrictions.”

The month before, Shanahan stated that she and Kennedy are “dedicated to bringing to light solutions that are in the best interest of mother and baby.”

A frequent presence at Kennedy campaign events, Stanton King personally introduced Shanahan at her first campaign event earlier this month.

She was a regular fixture at Kennedy campaign events.

Stanton King, an ally of President Donald Trump, was granted a pardon by the 45th POTUS in 2020.

She had served six months of home confinement in 2007 for her role in a car theft operation.

Stanton King later ran for the Republican House of Representatives in Atlanta.

During the course of that election, Stanton King professed support for the assertion that the 2020 election had been stolen.

The departure of Stanton King was reportedly due to her support for Trump, according to a report published by CBS News on Wednesday.

However, Stanton King adamantly rejected claims that it was linked to Trump.

“Reports that I’ve been let go from the RFK campaign for ANY reason are 100% ABSOLUTELY FALSE,” she wrote in a social media post.
