    I have been working in television for 15 exciting years! I got my start in Chicago – my hometown - as an intern on the “Jerry Springer Show” and as guest co-host on “Face to Face: The Vernon Jarrett Show” (WLS TV).

    Some call Susan Sparks a modern day dynamo. She was a lawyer who became a comedian, and then a minister. This weekend, she graced the stage in Charlotte, performing before a crowd of nearly two thousand at the Women of the Evangelical Lutheran Church of America.  Her story will astound you.

People are talking about the mystery woman in the Patrick Cannon criminal investigation.

One sentence in the search warrant affidavit told of an email from Amani Abdul to Patrick Cannon's scheduler Peggy Huffman.  The email was dated February 19, 2014.  The content of the email was not provided.

 Abdul is a Charlotte woman who identifies herself as a poet and a writer on her Facebook page. Thursday, Abdul issued a statement on her blog that identified her as the former campaign aide included in the FBI documents against Former Mayor Cannon.  A campaign aide was listed in the FBI's formal complaint.

Abdul issued a statement to My Fox Carolinas today that reads:

I, Amani Abdul, am the former campaign aide to former Charlotte Mayor Patrick Cannon.

Over the last several days I have received numerous emails, social media messages, calls, etc. relative to the former mayor’s FBI affidavit and search warrant list released to the public associated with the current FBI investigation. 

I worked as an aide to Mr. Cannon in his recent campaign for mayor. However, I had no involvement with the FBI’s investigation or arrest of Mr. Cannon.  Additionally, I was never in the South Park apartment mentioned in the FBI affidavit or any other South Park apartment for that matter nor was I romantically involved with Mr. Cannon. The email in question was listed as part of a search warrant list of items retrieved by the FBI and is the property of the FBI. I will respect their investigation but will be available to discuss once the investigation is concluded.

I have done nothing wrong or illegal and have not been contacted by the FBI or any other law enforcement agency with regards to this matter. However, if approached by the FBI or The United States Attorney’s office I will cooperate fully and completely. 

Due to the fact that this is an ongoing investigation, I will not make any further statements or respond to any further inquiry regarding this matter from the media.

I ask that you please respect my personal and professional life and privacy.

Thank you,

Amani Abdul
