North Miami Mayoral Candidate Says She is Endorsed by Jesus Christ

Tomorrow, the city of North Miami, Florida will hold its election for Mayor, and candidate Anna L. Pierre wants you to know something about her:

A mayoral candidate in North Miami claims she has received an endorsement from a higher power.

Campaign posters for Anna L. Pierre tout that she was endorsed by Jesus Christ.

Pierre is the same candidate who claimed last month that voodoo was being used against her:

Anna Pierre, one of eight candidates running for mayor, said unknown persons left chicken feathers, food scraps and candles at her office doorstep over the past three months. She believes the items are tied to mystical rituals in the Haitian Vodou religion.

“I found little dolls with needles in it. They put a lot of pennies at front of my office door,” she said. “I’m from Haiti I know what it is.”

Pierre said she will replace the signs. As far as the Vodou spells, Pierre said she’s ready to take that on too..

“They can put all the voodoo they want,” said Pierre. “I’m a Christian woman. I’m not scared.”

How she reconciles her belief in voodoo with her belief in Christianity baffles me…

Anyway, Pierre’s official campaign website doesn’t list the endorsement from Jesus. Neither does her personal website, which, for some reason, also includes endorsements.

I guess that’s one way to stick it to the other candidates before any of them claim God wanted them to run for mayor. Clearly, God, through Jesus, only has one person in mind for this position.

And if the people of Miami are intelligent, they’ll ignore God’s advice and vote for anybody else.
