Trump lawyer filed Kanye West papers in Wisconsin

Fresco

According to this article and reporting on the Rachel Maddow show, Trump campaign's lawyer also tried to file papers in Wisconsin to put Kanye West on the ballet for president on the birthday party. Someone has filed a complaint with the Wisconsin Bar  saying that lawyer Lane Ruhland has a conflict of interest, representing both campaigns.

A 3rd party candidate, like Kanye West, could take votes away from Biden.  Votes for a third party candidate are wasted because the candidate can't possibly get enough electoral votes to win. But they can get enough votes to throw the election.  They are spoilers. Spoiling the election will be the only result of Kanye West on the ballet, for the birthday party.

Lane Ruhland has filed a case against a tv station for running an opposition ad to Trump's Campaign. The ad uses Trump quotes in his own voice. People are of the opinion that this is a frivolous lawsuit.  In Wisconsin, the loser of a frivolous lawsuit does not have to pay costs, like in other states. In other states, if the Trump campaign would lose a frivolous lawsuit, the Trump campaign would have to pay all costs of the case, even for the defense.

As a general rule, I strongly disagree about the points on third party voting. Kanye shouldn't be taken seriously, though.

Kanye openly admitted to running as a Biden spoiler. Shouldn't there be some kind of election fraud law? :toofunny: lock him and Trump up tbh. Sick of the nonsense.

Are you surprised? :huntyga: And people still waste time criticizing Biden. Do it after he wins, because until then, you are basically helping Trump.

Here is another article with quotes from West.  West acknowledges that he knows his candidacy will hurt Biden. He also was confronted with the fact that he won't get enough electoral votes to win.

It references that his platform includes anti-vaccine conspiracy theories. I disagree with this very anti-vaccine propaganda strongly. Vaccines have saved this country from deaths and diseases, and improved longevity. Vaccines are a very good thing.

I just saw a news report yesterday that Russia is involved in anti-vaccine social media propaganda. Russia wants sick and weak enemies. So Russia most certainly doesn't want their enemies to use vaccines to stay healthy and strong.  Putin has already used a covid-19 vaccine, reportedly.

Jill Stein 2016 lost. Ralph Nader lost. H Ross Perot lost. Kanye West will lose. They all took votes from one of the other candidates, acting the spoiler.

There have been some 3rd party candidates for State offices that have won a job, but not a presidency. Sanders and Ventura come to mind. With Governor Ventura, it went so well that he didn't even try to run for a second term. Governor is an executive job, like the president, but at the state level. He had no default support from either Dem nor Gop in state congress, and not enough seats of his own party. So, they wouldn't send a bill with his wishlist in it. So his campaign promises were meaningless. He also had some "scandals". When they polled people near the end of his term, people that voted for him largely regretted it.
