Madison, WI — In a tearful speech surrounded by her closest allies and surrogates, Green Party Candidate Jill Stein said she was dropping out of the 2016 Presidential race one day before election day to battle her persistent Morgellons Disease. The physician and homeopathy supporter choked back tears as she addressed a crowd of over 17 people on the steps of the Wisconsin Capitol building.
“It is with great regret that I am announcing my departure from the 2016 race for the White House,” said a tearful Jill Stein clutching the hands of supporters to her left and right. “Although I have not publicly spoke of my condition, people near me understand that I have been battling Morgellons going back to the 1990s when I came down with this debilitating illness during one of my recording sessions. For those of you no familiar with the disease, it can consume your life with worry and anxiety. I have fought hard both for the people of the United States, but now I must turn my attention to curing Morgellons.”
Morgellons Disease or Morgellons Syndrome s a condition in which people have the delusional belief that they are infested with disease-causing agents described as things like insects, parasites, hairs or fibers, while in reality no such things are present, or are present only through benign causes, such as a piece of thread falling onto the skin. The Centers for Disease Control researchers issued the results of their multi-year study in January 2012, indicating that there were no disease organisms present in people with Morgellons.
Although there has not been an official announcement, sources close to the Stein Campaign says there will be a last-ditch campaign to get people to write in her Vice President candidate Ajamu Baraka, although there are concerns that most Americans can’t spell his name correctly and they might confuse his last name with President Barak Obama. Mr. Baraka has not released a comment. The Stein campaign did make a point to announce the non-profit Jill Stein Morgellons Foundation, which will hold its first fund-raiser in December and feature appearances by recent Morgellons-cured recording artist Joni Mitchell and famed “alt-health” physician Dr. Joseph Mercola who will speak on various treatments for the disease.
