Mainstream Media Pick Up Pinkney Story

Michigan Minister Runs for Congress From Prison
(excerpt)...Pinkney says he’s being harassed for his outspoken opposition to an upscale, 530-acre residential and commercial development in southwestern Michigan. Pinkney is upset that Benton Harbor city leaders are allowing the developers to use 22 acres of a city park that borders Lake Michigan for three holes of a Jack Nicklaus-designed golf course that is the heart of the project.

Pinkney decided to run for Congress to bring attention to his situation and “stand up for what is right.”

“The only way that we can get the word out and bring these people to justice is if I ran for office,” Pinkney says.
