Stacey Dash is ending her congressional bid saying she doesn’t want to be a part of “Plantation Politics.”

Dash, who was running for a seat in the Compton/Watts area, placed her decision on her faith, saying, “After much prayer, introspection and discussions with my family, I am withdrawing my candidacy for California’s 44th Congressional District,” reports tmz.


Dash went on to say, “I believe we live under a system of ‘Plantation Politics,’ which offers people on the lower end of the economic spectrum little more than symbolic gestures instead of true political empowerment and improvement.”

She says the “overall bitterness surrounding our political process” would be detrimental to the health and well-being of her family.

The decision has got to be good news for the Democratic frontrunner — Compton Mayor Aja Brown.
