Daniels Battles to Bitter End of Jax City Council Race

Kimberly Daniels is known for busting devils. Now, it looks like she may have busted into political office.

Daniels leads her opponent, attorney David Taylor, in a race for the At-Large Group One seat on Jacksonville's City Council.

Call it a battle between two controversial public figures in a heated run off election that could end with a recount.

Daniels is founder of Spoken Word Ministries, an inner-city, multiracial church in Jacksonville, Fla. Her ministry is widely known for its focus on prayer, intercession—and casting out devils. She ran on the Democratic ticket. Rapper MC Hammer and Pastor John Hagee endorsed Daniels in the battle.

In the other corner is Republican Taylor. Taylor could "face discipline by the Florida Supreme Court after a Florida Bar investigation found he violated rules after apparently threatening and taking money from a woman who was divorcing a client he represented," according to The Florida Times-Union.

There was also talk of Taylor forging a judge's signature on an eviction document and breaking a law related to using unlicensed contractors on homebuilding projects, the Times-Union reported. Taylor has not been proven guilty.

In the March 22 race, Taylor grabbed 47.85 percent of the vote compared to Daniels' 42.51 percent. Steve Burnett ran independently and conceded defeat after winning less than 10 percent of the vote with nine precincts left.

Charisma News will post an update with an interview with Daniels later today.
