By JAVIER MANJARRESThe colorful world of politics never cease to amaze me, especially when religion gets thrown into the mix. Today in North Miami, voters will go to the polls to vote in a new mayor.
One of the seven candidates vying for mayoral, Anne Pierre, is saying that she has been harassed, threatened, and even has even been a victim of a voodoo attack. Pierre said that she has received the endorsement of Jesus Christ, and has made him the core of her campaign, after she found “chicken feathers and candles outside of her office.”
“From the moment I applied, people started to give me problems,” Pierre said. “I received death threats, intimidations, trying to ask me to leave the race.”-WSVN
There have been mixed reactions by potential voters over Pierre’s claim that Jesus Christ endorsed her campaign for Mayor. Obviously, voters aren’t believing her claim that Christ endorsed her, but rather see this as just another gimmick by a politician to garner votes.
