Actress and former Fox News commentator Stacey Dash will withdraw from her congressional race just one month after filing the necessary paperwork to run for Congress as a Republican in California's 44th District.

While Dash didn't respond to a request for comment, insiders told The Hollywood Reporter on Friday that her decision was partially based on fear she had for the safety of her family.

"There were too many threats against her and her family. It was overwhelming," said one person close to her campaign.

Dash, perhaps best known for her role as Dionne in the 1995 comedy Clueless, was a Democrat who voted for President Barack Obama in 2008, though by 2012 she had switched parties and she has been controversial (at least among liberals) practically ever since.

In 2016, for example, she criticized feminists for not allowing men to "be masculine" and she criticized the notion of transgenders choosing which public restroom to use, calling it a "tyrany by the minority."

Dash, a black and Hispanic woman, also criticized the BET Awards and Black History Month, opinions that led to an appearance at the 2016 Oscars where Chris Rock jokingly introduced her to a baffled audience as the "new director" of the Academy's "minority outreach program."

In a lengthy statement to Cosmopolitan, Dash acknowledged she intends to withdraw from the race, saying her "goal was, and remains, to improve the lives of people who have been forgotten for decades by the Democratic party."

She added that she knows her "political positions have often been labeled as controversial, but the real controversy is how decades of government corruption and political disempowerment have created a system where skyrocketing home prices, dirty needles in the streets, and long bus trips to other districts for jobs are somehow considered acceptable."

Pelosi: Conor Lamb's win wasn't because he criticized my leadership

  Pelosi: Conor Lamb's win wasn't because he criticized my leadership Nancy Pelosi doesn't think that Democrat Conor Lamb's disavowal of her in his special election race aided his apparent victory in Pennsylvania's 18th Congressional District. "I don't think that that really had that much impact on the race," the California Democrat said at her weekly press conference Thursday. "He won. If we hadn't won, you might have a question, but we won — the 'D' next to his name was very significant."Lamb presented himself as a Pelosi critic during the race.

Dash had been one of three conservatives in Hollywood who had decided to run for office as Republicans, as soap star Antonio Sabato Jr. is running for Congress in California, as is film producer Frank DeMartini, who is running for the seat occupied by Democrat Maxine Waters.

Report: Shaquem Griffin fell in draft over inaccurate 40 time .
Shaquem Griffin turned heads everywhere with a 4.38 time in the 40-yard dash, but it turns out that number was reportedly not quite accurate and his draft stock was adjusted accordingly. Griffin’s original 4.38 time caught the attention of pretty much everyone at the NFL Combine, a time which quickly moved him into the top 100 of many draft boards. However, according to Frank Cooney of NFLDraftScout, the clock started a touch late on Griffin’s 40 run, and his time was closer to 4.58.Griffin was readjusted down draft boards accordingly, with his time going from elite to merely solid.
