(Newser) – A North Miami mayoral candidate has pretty much the endorsement to end all endorsements: Jesus Christ himself. Anna Pierre touts what she calls the "spiritual endorsement" on her campaign posters, and says she knows she's the one because the son of God sent her three signs that he endorsed her candidacy. Unfortunately, the former '90s Creole-language pop star wouldn't tell Local 10 what those signs were; she wants to keep them "private."

That's just one of several quirky elements to the Florida race. Of the seven candidates, one got punched in the face at his campaign headquarters last week and another filed five police reports for stolen signs. Pierre, for her part, last month claimed she was being targeted by voodoo spells; NBC Miami reported that dolls stuck with pins were left outside her HQ on Easter Sunday.

Jesus may not actually exist, but if He does, He's got to be tired of nincompoops like this taking His name in vain for their less than heavenly purposes. Optimally, Jesus should get off His Holy Duff and come back among us losers, fix all these ills and shut all these sad wannabes up. Here's a song about that. http://biffthuringer.bandcamp.com/track/please-jesus-be-real
