Kanye West fails to submit petition signatures needed to get on SC presidential ballot
By Jamie Lovegrove jlovegrove@postandcourier.com 50 min ago

COLUMBIA — Rapper Kanye West did not submit any of the 10,000 petition signatures needed to get on South Carolina’s 2020 presidential ballot by Monday’s noon deadline despite hosting a rally in the state the previous day.

The failure of West’s last-minute petition drive means he will almost certainly not be able to mount a quixotic third-party campaign in the Palmetto State after recently getting on the ballot in Oklahoma, where only a $35,000 filing fee is required.

By the time the deadline passed at noon, neither West nor any representative from his makeshift campaign had arrived to deliver the petition to the South Carolina Election Commission, according to commission spokesman Chris Whitmire. No “Late Registration” will be allowed.

A handful of reporters, like

@Bencjacobs
have been doing good work on the Kanye story, and their reporting should be what informs discussion of the issue, not needless speculation or misguided punditry.

4. You know, this publicity grabbing stint has not gone well for other celebrities when they attempted

to hitch a ride to on the CV 24 hour news cycle, their hypocrisy and double dealing was clearly showing and thus, it's the same way w/ this character Mr. West. There are far more important issues going on in this country and the last thing we f**king need in this Country now is another narcissistic personality trying to BS their way onto the stage along w/ the medical doctors. rump is doing the same stupid thing by reactivating his worthless CV sideshow.

Or are they just going to sit back and watch him self-destruct?

And he's that much more close to his wife and children as a result . . . . . .

13. Not surprising. He had a breakdown on stage last night.

Crying at the mic during a rally is not a recommended technique. His handlers are most likely trying to get him some help instead of focusing on file petitions.

14. I think that he's being backed by the tRump campaign.

West's campaign is obviously a blatant attempt to make tRump look sane, by comparison.

I'm so tired of these lazy-ass billionaires with no work ethic wanting to be President. They want the gig, but not the hard work that goes with it.

19. Why South Carolina?

If he is trying to draw votes away from democratic candidates, why campaign in South Carolina? Is their internal polling that bad?
And if he gets more people off the couch to vote against Biden, isn't that bad for Lindsey?

I am assuming he is working for the trump campaign.
