Proof that dreams really do come true, Bishop/Pastor Kenneth Adkins has admitted to lying. According to The Florida Times-Union, 15 minutes after the polls opened on July 26, Adkins posted an endorsement of Glynn County Commission candidate J. Peter Murphy by Georgia Representative Jeff Stone on Facebook.
Getting the endorsement of a state representative would be a great boost for the campaign of someone running for a county commission seat. Or it would have been if Rep. Stone had actually endorsed Murphy.
In a press release hastily sent out July 28, according to the TU, Stone categorically denied making any such endorsement and claimed that Murphy's campaign "fraudulently" fabricated it.
Or not so oops.
Adkins later admitted to inventing the endorsement because, he said, he was upset by the "unfairness" of Jones endorsing Murphy's opponent, incumbent Dale Provenzano.
So ... that just happened.
But in a bizarre twist, Adkins, our favorite Twitter blockerer who has been lambasted by the disparate likes of Folio Weekly Magazine, Jacksonville Mayor Lenny Curry and basically every member of the LGBTQ community who lives in Northeast Florida, decided to eat some humble pie.
Well, not eat, rather, wear.
In a rare showing of self-awareness, Adkins, who told the TU that his company, US Campaign Strategies, hasn't worked for the Murphy campaign since making some appalling statements on Twitter in the aftermath of the Pulse Orlando shooting, and also said the candidate had no part in the fake endorsement, decided to use his notoriety to do some good.
So from 7 - 10 a.m. on this Friday, August 5, anyone who donates 20 backpacks to a drive for school supplies in Glynn County can hit Adkins in the face with a creme pie, which he told the TU would be "supplied." The event will take place in front of Parker Kaufman Realty at 509 Gloucester Steet in Brunswick, Georgia.
FWM will not donate nor take part in the … More
