If breaking the law by campaigning in churches isn’t bad enough, Nikita Richards must think congregations will fall for anything – including lies.
Nikita really has nothing to run on, so she has created division and racial tensions by claiming discrimination and voter suppression. She has to create her own fact to do it. She likely thinks no one will know what she says inside churches. She’s wrong.
In this clip Nikita declares delaying early voting for the primary by Kathy Michael broke the law. That is a flat-out lie, Nikita doesn’t mention the Bloomington Election Commission and many other election authorities around the State also delayed early voting because of a court case that would have affected the ballot as I report here: https://blnnews.com/2018/02/06/early-voting-delayed/
Nikita wasn’t done with the lies though. In this clip she claims to have seen “trickery” happening with mail-in ballots. She has no proof, doesn’t cite any evidence, but makes the crowd think Kathy Michael doesn’t have the integrity for the job. It’s obvious who lacks integrity Nikita!
Voting based on skin color violates everything Martin Luther King stood for. MLK would be appalled with people who listen to lies and base their vote on what they hear without ever checking facts. Nikita Richards would make MLK furious because she promotes racial division instead of truth.
Nikita deceived members of west side churches within their sanctuaries. They should reject her quest for power with lies the same way MLK would. The lessons of the past are lost on Nikita:
