Former CIA Officer and Whistleblower Declares Candidacy for Congressman Ted Deutch's Seat in Florida's District 23

It took Perseverance and Fortitude to Recover from Chronic Homelessness for 5 years. Now I am Seeking Office to Represent the Discarded and Forgotten.​




FORT LAUDERDALE, FLORIDA, UNITED STATES, May 18, 2022 / -- Mark Napier, a self-described 'real' Independent Candidate, is formally announcing his bid for Congressman Ted Deutch's seat in Florida District 22 for the U.S. House of Representatives. Napier who filed on 5 February 2022 with the Federal Election Commission is a former Central Intelligence Agency officer. Napier reports he was wrongfully terminated in 2009--stemming from a personal vendetta for being a Whistleblower in 2005--who reported the mishandling of an investigation by Iraq Station officials involving Child Pornography where he served for three months. Napier would eventually be left homeless on the streets for five years. According to Napier, it took "perseverance and fortitude to pull myself off the streets in 2015, and now I am running for office."

Napier was in the service of the Agency for a total of 20 years as a staff employee and as independent contractor for the last four years. After the initial three-month deployment to Iraq, Napier's follow-on assignment for 3 1/2 years was to Afghanistan. Napier held the prestigious position of Deputy Chief of [CIA] Base of Bagram Airbase for 17 months from 2005 to 2007, before being deployed an additional two plus years along the Afghan/Pak border conducting Counterterrorism Operations until early 2009.

Napier devoted 26 years to the U.S. Army National Guard, Reserves and Active Duty (mobilized)—though not fully credited, due to work conflicts with CIA and the loss of his personnel records by the Army--four times. Napier graduated from various programs such as Military Intelligence, Military Police, Military Support to Civil Authorities, a MS degree in International Management and the Federal Law Enforcement Training Center to name but a few.

Napier has a long list of professional achievements and experiences including serving in various offices of the CIA: Security Protective Service, Office of Equal Employment Opportunity, Counterterrorism Center, Near East South Asian African Analysis, Non-Proliferation Center, and Office of Military Affairs. Napier also served a short stint in the National Counterterrorism Center just before his overseas deployment.

Napier has been registered as an Independent voter since the age of 18. "I look at the person, not the Party when voting. .....I know I would be a great advocate and voice for the LGBTQ+, Black, Asian, Hispanic, Jewish Buddhist and Islamic communities, in addition to the Dreamers of the middle and low income, impoverish, and homeless. Special emphasis needs placed, however, on the elderly, the disabled, the children [in foster care] and Veterans too."

Napier's campaign slogan to carry the fight to Washington is direct: "It only takes 'ONE' to be a Force Multiplier. 'ONE' being Optimistic, Neighborly and Experienced to get the job done in Congress. Not Slap and Tickle or Peekaboo Politics!...I am Not Bought, Not Biased, and Not Filtered!"

Additional information on Mark Napier as a candidate may be obtained from his questionnaire responses on, Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube.

Former CIA Officer: Mark Napier Explains Why He is Seeking Office In Florida District 23 (formerly District 22)

CIA Wrongful Termination for Whistleblowing Doesn't Stop Candidate Once Discarded and Forgotten from Continued Service to Country

FORT LAUDERDALE, FLORIDA, UNITED STATES, June 6, 2022 / -- Mark Napier is a self-described 'real' Independent candidate who is seeking office for the U.S. House of Representatives for Florida’s District #23 (formerly District 22, per Florida Senate Bill 2-C) for this fall's General Election. Napier acknowledges he is running a low-income campaign and has his sights set high, but believes he is the best choice to be the voice of the 'Dreamers' who are often the ‘Discarded and Forgotten,’ in addition to the Middle Class. Napier boasts using “IN-KIND” services to meet Federal Elections Commission's $5,000 threshold required to run for office.

Napier’s careers in the Intelligence community [Central Intelligence Agency] and the U.S. Army, in addition to his life changing experiences from being homeless on the streets for 5 years laid the foundation to run for office. It is these real-world experiences Napier believes gives him an edge over the other candidates. Napier was a CIA Whistleblower who reported a child pornography incident that had been mismanaged at an overseas CIA Station in Iraq 2005, noting..."Personal vendettas and retaliations at the CIA were so arcane by management that former CIA Director John Brennan took actions to hold management accountable in 2015." See

According to Napier…”I understand best what hard economic times are like, particularly during inflationary times. People do not just lose a home; they lose hope too. The people need someone who is proactive and not reactive to a crisis using perseverance and fortitude to keep standing. Most importantly the people need someone who speaks from the heart and not their butt. The people need someone who does not have an ego needing to be fed, nor to line their pockets from Special Interest Groups, Lobbyists or dark money. The people need someone looking out genuinely for their best interests. That is why I am the best choice for the people. I bring a lot to the table. ”

Napier continues…"I have a lot of war stories, career and life changing events that led me down a path that was least expected, if not destiny." Napier remembers most from the war comforting of a 14-year-old boy at Bagram hospital in Afghanistan who had three limbs blown off from un-exploded ordinance, in addition to the solemn moments [23 times] joining 14,500 personnel at Bagram Airbase rendering "The Silent Salute" to fallen Heroes’ flag draped coffins gave him an appreciation for the things we take for granted in life. Napier experienced first-hand incoming mortars, rockets and even an IED attempt that was thwarted. Napier notes too, his many engagements with leadership from opposition forces in Afghanistan would be useful during future U.S. talks with Afghan elements.

Napier also has an impressive professional background from Counterterrorism Operations, Federal Law Enforcement Training, Nuclear, Biological and Chemical Warfare, Contingency Operations and Exercises, in addition to Export Controls for Non-Proliferation are just a few highlights of his training and experiences from the CIA and Army. Napier served as the Deputy Chief of [a CIA] Base at Bagram Airbase and conducted Counterterrorism Operations along the Afghan/Pak border that were the last highlights of Napier’s career. Most notable was his coordination with the U.S. Secret Service of former President George Bush’s surprise visit to Afghanistan for the troops.

Nonetheless, Napier reports he was successful in his career disrupting terrorist plots in both the U.S. and in Afghanistan that saved soldiers’ lives. Additionally, Napier recalls his participation in disrupting a terrorist cell in Harpers Ferry, West Virginia in the late-90s the week before former President Bill Clinton’s visit marking ‘Earth Day’ Napier touts his years of experience at the joint bases of Fort Dix-McGuire, New Jersey was key in developing a national level exercise in 2005 that exposed how terrorists could infiltrate the bases to conduct mass shootings using pizza deliveries to gain access to the bases. In 2006, a plot was discovered that identified a terrorist cell attempting to use a pizza delivery service to carry out their proposed attack. See

Because Napier knows the 'mechanics' of the Intelligence Community and the Armed Forces he insists that "I am that guy you also want on 'the wall' protecting your civil liberties against misdirected attempts to collect information directed at Americans." The Department of Justice's own website reports... "With the lowering of 'the wall' between the Intelligence Community and Law Enforcement investigations .... [DOJ] has seen a steady increase in the number of requests to use information from FISA (Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act of 1978) authorized activities in prosecutions."

If elected, Napier contends that he will build a solid foundation with the Visionaries [business leaders] that continues to create and promote consistent economic prosperity throughout District #23 and south Florida’s various industries, goods, and services for the Dreamers [middle and low income] in mind; regardless of ethnicity or orientation using a “Hands-Up” not a “Hand-Out” approach in restoring self-worth, self-esteem, and dignity that welcome them ‘back into the fold’ as vital contributors to society. This includes advocating to:

--Promote and Legislate LGBTQ+ Rights
--Curb the Soaring Rate of Annual Increases on Rent, HOA and Condo
fees, plus Expedite More Affordable Housing
--Promote a Hand-Up Approach for Lower Income Class and Foster
Care Children, plus fight for the Middle Class who carry this Nation
--Work with Business Leaders of SOFLO to Promote Year-Round Stable
Economic Prosperity and Higher Paying Jobs
--Improve Healthcare Access & Convenience for Veterans, Dreamers,
LGBTQ+ and At-Home Care for the Elderly
--Promote Judicial Reform, Fund Law Enforcement and Training
--Protect Civil Rights and Liberties against FISA Abuses by the
Intelligence Community and Law Enforcement (DOJ)

In essence..."I want to follow in the footsteps of Shirley Chisolm, who in 1972, became the first Black woman to become a U.S. Congresswoman fighting for the Dreamers as my purpose in life….That is why I am running for office…I just hope the people will be open to having a ‘real’ Independent representing the people and not part of the population.”

FL. Dist. 23 Candidate's Reply to QAnon Rubbish as “All Bunkum & Balderdash!”

“Non-Party Affiliate [QAnon] Candidate's 'Strategy’ at Avoiding Elimination during August Primary is to play Political Chameleon to Mask True Loyalties”


                                         Captured screen shot from Christine Scott's 2020 campaign website.

FORT LAUDERDALE, FLORIDA, UNITED STATES, August 2, 2022 -- Florida District #23 Congressional Independent Candidate Mark Napier does not mince words when responding to adversarial NPA (Non-Party Affiliate) Candidate Christine Scott’s recent allegations. On two separate occasions Scott has publicly accused Napier of not being eligible to run for office.


Napier notes that Scott's ‘rubbish’ is not just inaccurate, deliberately misleading, and false; but not even substantiated. Napier is referring to Scott's own campaign website that primarily makes the unfounded allegation under her 'Blog' page titled: "15 Candidates in District 23’s Royal Rumble!"

Napier's response to Scott was simple and to the point: “All Bunkum and Balderdash!"....."I am not just qualified, but I have been confirmed to date (22 July 2022) five times from three different sources—Florida Division of Elections (three times), a nonpartisan Florida media element (Florida Politics) and even the Federal Elections Commission.”

Napier speculates that…”Scott's 'strategy' is to steer clear of competing with and being eliminated early on during the upcoming Primary Election on August 23rd, by running as an NPA 'Political Chameleon' masking her true QAnon loyalties to make it to the General Election in November."

Scott's other campaign website denotes: “Christine is registered as a No Party Affiliate. She answers to the People, not a party,” but then uses the famous QAnon phrase: “Where We Go One, We Go All!” Even Scott’s questionnaire for 2020 and 2022 reflects how she looks up to former President Donald Trump. Numerous internet articles from 2020 and 2022 like "The QAnon supporters running for Congress in 2022 | Media Matters for America" lists Christine Scott as QAnon. Scott also has an account profile name of "MzzQ" on the social media networking service identified as GAB.  GAB is identified as a microblogging and social network service known for its "far right" user-base of QAnon supporters.  

Napier says he had originally sought to assist in Scott’s campaign as she was listed--at first glance--as a NPA that is commonly affiliated with being Independent. However, during Napier’s first meeting with Scott in October 2021, Napier quickly suspected something was 'off-kilter' with Scott’s way of thinking. Napier says…”That is when and why I decided to politely cut bait.”

“Since the age of 18, I [Napier] have always been registered as an Independent and assess the person, not their party." Following the ‘Great Recession of 2009,’ Napier was left chronically homeless for five years and became inactive as a voter. In 2015, Napier pulled himself off the streets using perseverance and fortitude and now seeks.... "The Impossible Dream"

Napier, nor Scott will be involved in the Primaries, but will instead face off with the Primary winners of each party during the General Election on 8 November.
