NORTH MIAMI, Fla., April 9 (UPI) -- A Florida woman running for mayor says someone is targeting her using sorcery rituals from the Haitian voodoo religion.

Anna Pierre, one of eight candidates running for mayor of North Miami, said she has found evidence on her office doorstep including chicken feathers, food scraps and candles during the past three months, The Miami Herald reported Tuesday.

"I found little dolls with needles in it. They put a lot of pennies at front of my office door," she said. "I'm from Haiti. I know what it is."

Pierre said she has also been getting anonymous calls to her phone telling her to drop out of the race.

"I have people in Haiti, Canada, and the U.S. praying for me," she said. "I have Jesus with me."

Pierre said she will not be frightened into leaving the race.

"They can put all the voodoo they want," she said. "I'm a Christian woman. I'm not scared."
