Sinthyia Darkness Wants to Be Miami's First Goth Mayor

Last week, a new candidate entered Miami's mayoral race on a platform of health-care reform and mosquito control. Riptide isn't sure if running on those issues alone will win a mayoral race, but they're pretty standard political fair. The lady behind the ideas, though, isn't your standard politician.

Coconut Grove resident Sinthyia R. Darkness is a paranormal activity expert, founder of the Miami Center for Paranormal Research, horror author, and now 2009 mayoral candidate, according to an announcement on her official website.

Considering talk show host Enrique Santos won 26 percent of the vote in the last mayoral race in the city, and frequent school board meeting audience member Helen Williams won 35 percent of the vote in the past race for county mayor, we're not sure if we should totally write her off just yet.
