Professor Who Told Students to ‘Stomp on Jesus’ is Running to be Elections Supervisor in Florida

A South Florida professor who once gained infamy for giving an assignment to his students to “stomp on Jesus” is now trying to become the next Palm Beach County supervisor of elections.

Deandre Poole is looking to succeed Susan Bucher in the role. Bucher is the disgraced former supervisor who resigned after being suspended by Gov. Ron DeSantis. She failed to report election results on time during the 2018 mid-term elections, making her a national pariah.

Poole, 32, is a political novice but feels that his history as a political activist, community leader, and grassroots organizer “are the kind of skills that this office needs.”

His competition will be Paulette Armstead, 68, who lost while making runs for the state House of Representatives in Broward County in 2016 and 2018. She changed her voting registration to Palm Beach County following her second defeat.
