Even with the help of the GOP, regrettably one of the most powerful (if inept) organizations in the country right now, Kanye West’s Birthday Party clown campaign keeps creampieing itself in the face. According to Business Insider, Kanye’s bid to get on the Wisconsin ballot with the help of one of Donald Trump’s personal campaign lawyers is being challenged by the Democratic Party who claim “he submitted his nomination papers late and used bogus signatures,” which included “Mickey Mouse” and “Bernie Sanders.” Additionally, the New York Post reports that he’s been kicked off the Illinois ballot, his home state, after officials found that “1,900 of the 3,128 signatures West submitted are invalid.” OK, haha, who sent in R. Kelly’s crayon writing practice worksheets from jail as a joke? Not cool, man. He’s doing his best!
Obviously, Kanye has a lot on his plate at the moment and unfortunately, it’s not a sandwich with a glass of milk or a mug of Sleepytime tea. It’s a Pollockian mess of splattered ego and delusions of grandeur that, instead of satiating him and inviting a nap, has made him ravenous for more. As such, he’s a mess and his presidential campaign is in absolute shambles. BI reports:
The Democratic Party in Wisconsin is urging state officials to block Kanye West from being on the state’s presidential election ballot in November, claiming that he submitted his nomination papers late and used bogus signatures.
The party has filed a complaint claiming that the rapper’s team did not submit its papers to Wisconsin’s Elections Commission by 17:00 on Tuesday, the formal deadline, the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.
The complaint also alleged that West’s papers included bogus signatures and addresses.
Among the signatures submitted were “Mickey Mouse,” Vermont Senator “Bernie Sanders,” and two for “Kanye West.”
I guess they found it hard to believe that Mickey could sign his name legibly considering he only got but three fingers. Besides, it’s common knowledge that he’s registered in Florida. The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel adds that the complaint “included affidavits from six individuals who said they were duped into putting their names on West’s paperwork,” and that an attorney for the Democratic Party warns “crimes were committed by the West campaign” if those affidavits are true. One lady said she was told outside of a Walmart that “her that her signature was needed to make sure she was registered to vote,” another says she only signed “after the circulator said he got paid $1 per name,” and did so out of charity. The MJS reports:
A message sent to the email account listed on West’s Federal Election Commission filing bounced back as undeliverable.
Here’s the sound you hear every time there’s a bounceback from the Kanye Campaign.
Illinois wasn’t as explicit about why they rejected Kanye’s signatures in that state. But he now falls short of the 2,500 signatures he needed, and he’s out the $30,000 he paid to appear on the ballot. NYP reports:
Kanye West won’t be appearing on the presidential ballot for his home state after election officials in Illinois found that 1,900 of the 3,128 signatures West submitted are invalid.
The signatures were brought to the attention of the Illinois State Board of Elections after three people filed objections citing dodgy signatures, the site reported.
Kanye will however appear on the ballot in Colorado because “Colorado’s bar is lower than most,” which is an absolute own on both Kanye and The Great State of Colorado. Meanwhile, Kanye’s back from the Dominican Republic where he was trying to fix things with Kim Kardashian and has been Tweeting up a storm on a range of topics competing for precious space in that Christian Genius Billionaire noggin of his. In no particular order of priority, among other things, Kanye has Tweeted about Yeezy shoes (each design more hideous than the last), his plans for building underwater houses, spending quality time with his children, trying to figure out how to “do the Indiana Jones bolder (sic) as a door,” an “important shape” (must be seen to be believed), Manga, and a giant inflatable lady. Here’s Kanye attending to priority #652 (family time) by doing the viral Push the Feeling On challenge with North West.

Page Six says this was filmed while they were still in the DR and reports that Kanye’s bleached hair references a track from Jesus is King that says “I bleached my hair for every time I could’ve died.” Which can happen when you jump out of a moving vehicle for internet clout! We really must ask ourselves, do we want the next President of the United States taking such risks? Something to think about, Colorado!
