Sore loser claims rival’s hex cost her election

Sore loser indeed to have to resort to this pathetic excuse! What the hell century are we in?

Loser pol: Rival put a Caribbean hex on me | New York Post.

A rival of Melissa Mark-Viverito filed a million-dollar lawsuit against the front-runner for City Council speaker — claiming she put a Caribbean hex on her while the two were running for the same council seat, in the form of a black-magic mural on her building.

Gwen Goodwin, 52, who spectacularly lost the Democratic primary to Mark-Viverito in September, says her nemesis targeted her East 100th Street building as the canvas for a five-story image of a bodiless rooster atop wooden poles.

“According to neighbors of Puerto Rican and other backgrounds, in the Caribbean culture, this constituted a curse and a death threat, as a swastika or a noose would symbolize typically to many Jews or African-Americans,” Good­win alleges in a Manhattan Supreme Court suit she filed Friday.

Goodwin said she endured “emotional distress” from the alleged spell that distracted her from running a winning campaign.

“This intimated me and caused me fear. I’m a Christian. I don’t believe outside my religion, but strange things were happening,” Goodwin claimed.

She said that she suddenly got a blood clot in her foot and that a close friend began “acting crazy” right after the mural went up.

Mark-Viverito was part of an urban-art campaign to celebrate Latino culture through murals. Goodwin claimed this was a deliberate evil directed towards her. Honestly, be VERY glad she lost. Why would you someone of this worldview running a city? It might not be too hard to figure out why she really did lose. It’s a very pretty mural. Not a pretty accusation.

    What century, indeed. First off, I do not believe in the stuff. Second- I have a feeling this was done on purpose to give the christian the shakes. Not only that, the damned latins seem to think they own everything anyways. FL is a good example of that policy, lemme tell you.

    “This intimidated me and caused me fear. I’m a Christian. I don’t believe outside my religion, but strange things were happening. ”
    I would assume that when one self imposes ignorance by not believing outside a 2000 year old dogma many things will appear strange and possibly intimidating.
    Don’t hold beliefs only yet to be disproven theories.

    I’m torn about this.

    First off, no, I don’t believe in magic and curses. I don’t know if the mural would qualify as one.

    On the other hand, waving an unloaded pistol at someone is, justly, Assault with a Deadly Weapon, and it is illegal to threaten someone’s life. I’d consider a curse a threat.

    I think the difference is that a gun has the potential to actually hurt, or kill someone, regardless of wether, or not, the intended victim believes the gun can harm them or not.

    A curse, on the other hand, can’t objectively harm someone. The intended victim has to believe it to cause harm.

    In other words, the belief causes the victim to harm themselves.
