Rev. Jarrett Maupin is a convicted felon as well as a man of God and a man of the people who is campaigning for the Democratic nomination in Arizona’s 7th district. He is, according to his campaign website, the “son of a wise Latina” who accidentally lied to the FBI and has progressive positions on equality, immigration reform, and the environment—oh, and also on strippers.
Last week, Maupin, who did not respond to a request for comment, was endorsed by the Great Alaskan Bush Company—and he welcomed his new fans with open arms. “The Lord works in mysterious ways,” he told the Arizona Republic.
