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 Arizonaâ€™s 7th district. He is, according to his campaign website, the â€œson of a wise Latinaâ€ who accidentally lied to the FBI and has progressive positions on equality, immigration reform, and the environmentâ€”oh, and also on strippers.
Last week, Maupin, who did not respond to a request for comment, was endorsed by the Great Alaskan Bush Companyâ€”and he welcomed his new fans with open arms. â€œThe Lord works in mysterious ways,â€ heÂ told theÂ Arizona Republic.
