A North Miami mayoral candidate who did not make it into the runoff is not going away quietly.
Anna Pierre, who has said Jesus Christ endorsed her campaign, sent out a rambling mass email Wednesday morning warning the city chose Lucifer “over Jesus.” She also posted the message on her Facebook page.
The two top vote-getters, Lucie Tondreau and Kevin Burns (North Miami's gay former mayor), will head to a runoff on June 4 since both were shy of the more than 50 percent needed to win outright.
Pierre received less than 1 percent of the votes, but she said does not believe the numbers. Of 6,786 ballots cast for mayor, she captured 56 votes.
“They claimed I only have 56 votes, you can believe them if you want. I know they are corrupted and some members of the current administration were ready to do anything to have their protégé elected to (perhaps) prevent their butt from going to jail in the near future. But I never expected them to go this far,” she wrote.
