CHARLESTON -— A Charleston woman is suing Oprah Winfrey again, this time claiming the talk show host took funds from her Social Security account and deposited them into the U.S. Treasury.
Famous television evangelist T.D. Jakes and his wife Serita also are named as defendants in the suit.
The defendants allegedly took funds from Emily K. Braxton's Social Security funds and deposited them into the U.S. Treasury for nuclear warfare, according to a complaint filed May 19 in Kanawha Circuit Court.
Braxton claims the defendants also have sought to cut communications between her and her daughter and grandchildren.
Braxton claims in her complaint that she also believes Winfrey, the Jakes, Pope Benedict XVI and President Barack Obama had musician Michael Jackson killed.
Braxton is seeking for her wages to be restored. She is representing herself.
The case has been assigned to Circuit Judge James C. Stucky.
Braxton recently filed a lawsuit against Winfrey, former President George W. Bush and Laura Bush. She claimed they conspired with local physicians to implant a camera with wire sensors into her with the intent of reincarnation.
She also has filed at least 12 similar lawsuits in Kanawha Circuit Court since 2001, according to court records. All have been dismissed.
Kanawha Circuit Court case number: 10-C-909
