Announced targets of Drake's death prayers have included President Barack Obama, each of the 219 Democrats in the House of Representatives who voted for health care reform in 2010, and the leadership of Americans United for Separation of Church and State after that group asked the IRS to revoke the tax-exempt status of Rev Drake's ministry.
