Mitzi Bickers is the pastor of Atlanta Georgia’s Emanuel Baptist Church. She is a former president of the Atlanta school board, a former construction company executive, a former Democrat staffer and political strategist and last year she left her job as a senior advisor to Atlanta Mayor Kasim Reed after news service she had filed a fraudulent financial disclosure statement.
She resurfaced this week in Mississippi. Two Atlanta-based entities affiliated with Mitzi Bickers, The Bickers Group and the ‘Citizens for Progress’. Clerks at the office of Mississippi’s secretary of state said that no such group is registered there as a political committee. The Federal Election Commission also lacks any registration from a group with that name. They were paid thousands of dollars to make Robo calls on Sen. Cochran’s behalf into the black community.
One of the political action committee was run by former Mississippi Gov. Haley Barbour’s nephew, Henry, who paid the groups $44,000 for ‘Get out the vote’ phone services into the black community. Mitzi Bickers is an Afro-American. She has worked in Atlanta politics for years and she’s openly gay. She worked to get black voters to the poll-that’s what she knows how to do.
She is not responding to any public questions today from reporters. Apparently they have found the mystery behind a large crossover of African-American voters. It was a naked political ploy to get Cochran elected because a Democrat had no chance. AND to get him elected beholden to the NAACP which is has already demanded a whole list of things from the Senator.
