Kayne West’s presidential campaign appeared to have been a bit tough after his votes were submitted in Wisconsin about 14 seconds after the deadline. West’s campaign attorney gave many reasons he didn’t think this would matter, including claiming that the iPhone watch is ‘notoriously faulty’ …
The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel interesting story narration.
West’s lobby is arguing that he belongs to the presidential ballot in Wisconsin even if his campaign signed a nomination 14 seconds after 5 p.m. on August 4.
The 23-page document, submitted on Monday, says a state Election Commission staff member told a Western campaign aide that she had submitted her nomination 14 seconds after the deadline. State law says documents must be lodged “no later” by 5:00 pm
Sorry? 5 p.m. doesn’t really mean 5 p.m.
“The statutory clause does not distinguish between minutes and seconds,” Spring Green attorney Michael Curran said in the filing. “For the casual observer, arriving before 5:01 pm is arriving ‘no later’ than 5pm
Next, it takes time to unlock the door and interfere from, well, everyone.
“Even if assuming the filing is not in time to begin, the Commission should find that the nomination paperwork has been promptly submitted here due to the Commission’s lockdown as well as media interference. information and a rival campaign, ”writes Curran […]
In Wisconsin, Curran wrote, Democrats presented “shameful threats to his supporters and an organized attempt to harass and intimidate.”
Finally, it’s the iPhone clock.
Curran dismissed WISN-TV (Channel 12) reporter video and tweet that Ruhland and her assistant entered the building 18 seconds after 5 p.m. Curran also challenged a video of a Democratic Party employee suggesting them come after the time limit of about 20 seconds.
Curran said the video used the iPhone clock to track Ruhland’s entrance. Such watches are notoriously faulty, Curran said.
A bipartisan council will now rule Kayne West’s presidential election.
The complaints will be reviewed by Election Commission staff who will present West nomination papers to the bipartisan council. The panel consisted of three Democrats and three Republicans.
Although they can also be affected by the signatures reported in the papers.
There are a lot of problems with West nominations, including incorrect addresses for circulators and bogus signatures, such as “Mickey Mouse” and “Bernie Sanders.” The Democratic Party’s complaint included statements by six individuals claiming they had been cheated into putting their names in West’s paperwork.
