Registered nurse and former Creole pop star Anna Pierre recently claimed that she had been "endorsed by Jesus Christ" in her run for mayor of North Miami, Florida.
Pierre's campaign posters are making the claim, apparently based upon her prayers to God about running for the political office.
"It's a spiritual endorsement. Why? Because everything I do I always get God involved," Pierre told Local10.com.
Pierre claims she received three signs that Jesus had endorsed her, but when asked what they were, Pierre said: "Well, I'm going to keep them private."
Florida State Representative Daphne Campbell actually claimed that voters have to "respect" the wild unproven claim.
"Well, listen, that's her opinion," said Campbell. "That's her belief. We have to respect that. She wants Jesus to endorse her, that's okay."
"What I say to those people who don't believe in Jesus? I'm going to tell them that, whether or not you believe in Jesus or not, once I am elected mayor, I'm going to be the mayor for everybody," said Pierre, who previously claimed to be a victim of voodoo spells.
According to the Miami Herald, Pierre said in March: “I found little dolls with needles in it. They put a lot of pennies at front of my office door. I’m from Haiti I know what it is.”
“I have people in Haiti, Canada, and the U.S. praying for me,” she said at the time. “I have Jesus with me.”
Other North Miami mayoral candidates have had their mishaps as well.
Jean Marcellus was punched inside his campaign headquarters, while Kevin Burns has reported people stealing his signs, five times, to police.
