Nevermind that the fundamental assumption – that black voters will vote for a black man based solely on the color of his skin – is a profoundly racist position.
Get through all that and you still have nomination papers submitted on behalf of West rife with lies, fake signatures and criminal conduct. In a lengthy filing submitted Friday evening, four Wisconsin electors challenged more than half the 2,422 nomination signatures submitted by West on Tuesday. A second, shorter complaint made similar allegations.
The complaints include a laundry list of claims that should discredit enough signatures to reduce West’s nomination papers below the 2,000-signature threshold and disqualify him from Wisconsin’s ballot.
First and foremost, West’s operatives bungled the timing. Current Trump attorney and former Wisconsin GOP counsel, Lane Ruhland, turned the nomination signatures in shortly after 5:00 p.m. on Tuesday. The deadline set by statute was 5:00 sharp. That may not seem like much, but Wisconsin courts have been clear that adherence to the statute requires “strict compliance.” Any deviation automatically invalidates the entire submission.
There is a very good chance that the Wisconsin Elections Commission doesn’t even address the rest of the complaint, choosing instead to declare the entire nomination void and the rest of the claims moot. After such a boneheaded mistake, West – or whatever Trump shell-game pawn paid Ruhland – may want to ask for a refund.
Losing at that point may be a mercy for West’s team, though. The remaining claims raise serious issues of misrepresentation and deceit that may border on criminal activity.
More than 1,500 signatures were gathered by circulators who lied to Wisconsin voters or included fake addresses. One circulator told a resident that the papers were “to support increasing minority representation” rather than nominate West for the presidency. Another was informed the papers were to help make “sure people were registered to vote.” A third, who does “not think Kanye West should run for President” and “would never support or vote for him,” was rushed to sign the papers and told they “related to voting.”
Of course, it might be hard to confirm those stories with the signature gatherers because several lied about their addresses which must be provided on the nomination papers.
Complaint Filed Against Lawyer Working for Kanye West and Trump Campaigns
Wisconsin attorney Lane Ruhland delivered election paperwork on West's behalf to the Wisconsin Elections Commission on Tuesday. Ruhland was also named as an attorney for Trump's campaign on a legal brief filed in July. According to Campaign for Accountability, that represents a conflict of interest for Ruhland.
In the grievance, Campaign for Accountability Executive Director Michelle Kuppersmith said West's campaign is inherently at odds with Trump's reelection campaign "as both individuals cannot simultaneously obtain the office and hence legal steps that advance the interests on one candidacy harm the interests of the other candidacy."
Reports of rival "neighborhood gangs" were at the cookout and these were the perpetrators.
Witnesses said they fired indiscriminately into the crowd hitting at least 10 women, 2 were shot shielding their children.
Bet there's no outcry from BLM..or the skinny white ANTIFA crew.
