DiMezzo, a Libertarian, said in a blog post that "totally oblivious" citizens "wouldn't have voted" for her if they had researched the candidates on the ballot.
"You feel betrayed. You may even be wondering how the party that you so believed in could do something like this. But, odds are, you're blaming me," DiMezzo wrote.
DiMezzo, the High Priestess of the Reformed Satanic Church, said she's running for the law enforcement position to oppose the "reckless" partisan electoral system that allowed her to become the Republican nominee.
"More than 4,000 people went into the voting booth on September 8 this week, and they all filled in the circle by my name despite knowing absolutely nothing about the person they were nominating to the most powerful law enforcement position in the county." DiMezzo wrote.
