Whisper Campaign Targets Church Pastor Running For Coral Springs Commission

While most of the Coral Springs election coverage remains focused on Khurrum Wahid’s bogus claims of “racism” and “xenophobia,” a whisper campaign targets one of his opponents, Randal Cutter. This underground campaign details how in 1999, Cutter, the pastor of New Dawn church, claimed God gave him visions of an approaching hurricane. Cutter made no secret of the visions he claims God gave him.

The dreams which purportedly warned Cutter about Hurricane Irene are blasted all over the New Dawn website. In 1999, Cutter appeared on WPTV 5- NBC in West Palm Beach to discuss the visions. Plus, a book Cutter wrote about the Hurricane Irene visions can be purchased now on Amazon.

Despite the public nature of Cutter’s visions and claims he was chosen by God to warn others about Hurricane Irene, someone has been sharing these stories with Coral Springs residents just days before the upcoming June 18th election. In addition to a link of the WPTV broadcast, a copy of Cutter’s letter to local religious leaders about the visions is being shared.

The blurry images appeared to be pulled directly from Cutter’s book, Whatever You Bind On Earth: Authority To Stop Hurricanes. In the book, Cutter says he sent the letter to more than fifty churches. He hoped to get other churches to heed his warning about the hurricanes. According to Cutter, only 6 church leaders responded to the letter.

Despite questions about the validity of Randal Cutter’s visions, it is clear someone wants to expose his non-mainstream religious beliefs before voters hit the polls. At least three campaigns contacted by REDBROWARD were aware of the WPTV video, but each one denied any intent to use the video.

Even the Sun-Sentinel jumped into the religion-bashing when it stated Cutter had just 125 members in his flock. Sources say Cutter told Sun-Sentinel editor Rosemary O’Hara the number was closer to 140 members.

Judge for yourself.

Sun Sentinel Editor-In-Chief: “The Reporter Didn’t Apologize” To Khurrum Wahid Campaign

Last week, REDBROWARD revealed a Broward elected official falsely claimed the Sun-Sentinel apologized for running a biography of Khurrum Wahid, a candidate for the Coral Springs city commission. Alissa Jean Schafer, a member of the Broward Soil & Water Board, claimed the newspaper apologized for correctly stating Wahid’s legal representation of terror suspects. Schafer even claimed a fact-filled story about Wahid’s legal work could lead to violence.

Lisa Huraish, the Sun-Sentinel reporter who wrote the Wahid story, quickly responded. Huraish categorically denied any apology was made. She wrote, “ I just want to set the record straight here. Yes, we did update the story after a candidate, Khurrum Wahid, issued a response, including why he has represented terrorism suspects. We did this out of fairness, to provide more explanation and context. The first story was accurate, and we never apologized for it. That’s the full truth.

The Khurrum Wahid campaign never responded to our requests for comment.

Last night, REDBROWARD caught up with Wahid and Schafer at a candidate forum in Coral Springs.

Schafer doubled-down In her claims the Sun-Sentinel issued an apology. When asked why she claimed an apology was made, Schafer said, “Why? I have an email showing she did.” Schafer then laughed while running away from our camera.

We showed our video to Julie Anderson, the Editor-in-Chief of the Pulitzer Prize winning South Florida Sun-Sentinel.

Anderson said,”The reporter didn’t apologize for her story. We reiterate that it was accurate.”

The Wahid campaign is paying Schafer and her Copper Stamp Strategy company for communication consulting. Is this the type of communications Wahid would approve if elected? Even more troubling, Schafer worked for current Coral Springs Commissioner Joshua Simmons. Will voters be able to trust what commissioners say if Alissa Schafer keeps spewing fake news?

Coral Springs voters deserve the truth before the June 18, 2019 election.
