A Texas businesswoman is suing Black Lives Matter Sacramento for libel.
According to a recent court filing, a post on the BLM Sacramento Facebook page showed racist emails sent from an address linked to Karra Crowley. The Texas resident, who spends time in California for business, says she emailed BLM leader Tanya Faison asking her to remove the post, saying it was not her email address. Documents filed in federal court in Sacramento identify the “impostor” who sent the messages under Karra Crowley’s name as Robert Leslie Adair, and Crowley’s lawyer is now seeking permission to add Adair’s name to a libel lawsuit against BLM Sacramento and its founder, Tanya Faison.
Adair could not be reached for comment Tuesday. Messages to email accounts listed for him in online records came back as undeliverable, and a call to a business listing for him at Roseville Mortuary Transport in Citrus Heights was not returned, according to The Sacramento Bee.
