Meet Sabrina Belcher, a 29-year-old demorat mayoral candidate in Sumter, South Carolina:
Here’s what she said about running for mayor back in June:
“Sumter needs a change in leadership, especially with recent events over racial injustice happening in the U.S.
Belcher’s motto, “Hold on, change is coming,” hits her heart in this campaign and considers herself the much-needed change for the City of Sumter.
“To me, it would be a great deal of responsibility and a lot of change for our city because South Carolina itself is one of the places where slavery and discrimination really began,” Belcher said.
Though Belcher said she has little experience working with government, she thinks she’s best fit for the position after attending council meetings and being a voice for many community members.
Belcher said she began the journey of running for mayor by wanting to make a positive change in the community.”
Sabrina sure has an odd way of defining “positive change in the community” as she and her buddy Christopher Eaddy were arrested for staging her kidnapping and beating in order to garner publicity, sympathy and votes in the November election.
Belcher admitted to planning the fake crime, which Sumter Police say she recorded and posted to Facebook live. More details from Fox Carolina:
“Police say on Tuesday they were called to the police station just before 11:30 p.m. to meet with Belcher who reported she was was assaulted and kidnapped by an unknown man during an attempted robbery.
She was injured and her vehicle windows were knocked out during the chain of events described by Belcher.
During the investigation, police say Belcher provided a fake name of her attacker. Officers say they later determined she was in contact with Eaddy whom she had worked with days prior to concoct and stage the reported incident.
Police say the duo also attempted to discredit a fellow candidate in their recording, adding that Belcher had ongoing plans to smear other mayoral candidates prior to the election.
“This was simply an effort to create disorder and discontent in our community for personal gain,” Chief Russell Roark said. “As a result, a valuable number of resources, including personnel, man-hours of the police department as well as local medical professionals, were wasted based on false information.”
Belcher is charged with filing a false police report of a felony and conspiracy. Eaddy is charged with conspiracy. Both were booked Wednesday at the Sumter County Sheriff’s Office Detention Center.”

I’ll give Belcher credit for being creative. She’s proven she’s got that skill when you compare her mugshot (above) to her campaign promo:
