President Trump Pardoned Angela Stanton-King. Now She's Running for Congress.

One of President Donald Trump's biggest wins, since he has taken office, is his criminal justice reform efforts. The First Step Act reformed the criminal justice system and gave individuals who committed first time, typically nonviolent drug crimes, a new lease on life.

Angela Stanton-King was one of those people who benefited from the First Step Act. The former reality TV star was convicted of "federal conspiracy charges for her role in a car theft ring," the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported. 

Stanton-King reportedly worked with former “Real Housewives of Atlanta” star Phaedra Parks, and her husband, Apollo Nida, in various criminal enterprises. Their schemes included forgery and a complicated “federal racketeering scheme” which involved stealing luxury cars.

She spent more than two years in prison before she was pardoned. 

Now that Trump has pardoned her sentence, Stanton-King, the goddaughter of Alveda King, is running for Georgia's 5th Congressional District, against Rep. John Lewis (D).

Although Stanton-King says she respects Lewis' actions during the Civil Rights movement, she said it's time for a change. One of the focuses of her campaign will be on the pro-life movement.

“Whenever I think about Rep. John Lewis, the image I have in my head is him on the Selma bridge. I have the utmost respect for the contributions that he has made to black America,” Stanton-King said, referring to Lewis' involvement in the march on Alabama’s Edmund Pettus Bridge. “However, this isn’t the Selma bridge, and our babies are dying. It is time for war.”
