Trump supporting write-in candidate declares herself governor of Ohio after discussing plot to kidnap Mike DeWine | The Independent

A woman who ran as a write-in candidate against Ohio Governor Mike DeWine has unlawfully declared herself governor of the state and been implicated in a plot to kidnap and prosecute Mr DeWine.

Renea Turner, who ran against Mr DeWine as a write-in candidate in 2018, posted a video to her Facebook on Thursday in which she places her hand on a Bible and proclaims herself the governor of Ohio.

“Ohio is free from Tyrannous leadership,” she wrote in a Facebook post following the stunt.

The day after she posted the video, Ms Turner met with an individual who claims she pitched them a plot to place Gov. DeWine under house arrest.  

The Ohio Capital Journal was the first to report on the plot.

According to the individual – who asked local media not to identify them over fears of retribution – Ms Turner told them that they would kidnap Mr DeWine, try him for several alleged crimes, and then sentence him to exile or execution.

According to the whistleblower, the plot against Mr DeWine was a response to the governor’s coronavirus mandates.
