Opal Covey, the self-proclaimed “prophetess” who lost mayoral races in Toledo, Ohio five previous times, has lost yet again.
Even though she was sure God was on her side this time for real.
When she lost in 2015 — she came in dead last — she said the votes had been stolen from her. But that wasn’t going to happen this year, she insisted, because “God is on the scene now.”
God apparently loves making her look like an idiot, though, since she couldn’t even pull together 1% of the primary votes.
With elections officials reporting all votes counted, the endorsed Democrat had 9,686 votes, to 8,350 votes for Mr. Kapszukiewicz, a fellow Democrat and Lucas County Treasurer. Endorsed Republican Councilman Tom Waniewski came in third with 6,659 votes. Self-proclaimed Prophetess Opal Covey tallied 199 votes.

At some point, the claim of “voter fraud” has to lose power, right? Because, by her logic, an all-powerful, all-knowing, all-seeing God is on her side… but He just can’t control the ballot box.
Maybe those 199 people who supported Covey can chip in some money, say it’s from God, and convince her to stop wasting everyone’s time in another two years.
