In a typical doofus move, Kid Rock started screaming obscenities when it was mentioned that he was already in violation of campaign finance laws. Robert Ritchie (that is Kid Rock’s real name in case you didn’t know) isn’t officially a candidate yet, but he has bragged about throwing his ill-fitting and stupid-looking misshapen little fedora into the ring to run against Democratic incumbent, Michigan Senator Debbie Stabenow.
Stabenow has been in Michigan and U.S. legislative positions for 40-plus years. She has such a large base of supporters that it would take someone with a lot of charisma and a good campaign platform to rock her boat. Despite all his chest-banging braggadociousness, Kid Rock ain’t got it.
Although there aren’t any polls out yet, his blind support of alleged president Donald Trump and his well-known womanizing ways won’t win him any special points in the mitten state. Women comprise 51% of the voting populace and they are clearly supporting Stabenow, so unless she steps out of the race entirely, punk-azz Richie won’t stand a chance.
The controversy about the campaign finance violation comes from Ritchie’s sale of campaign-style t-shirts proclaiming “Kid Rock for Senate.” According to Paul S. Ryan, Common Cause’s vice president for policy and litigation:
Regardless of whether Kid Rock says he’s only exploring candidacy, he’s selling ‘Kid Rock for Senate’ merchandise and is a candidate under the law. This is campaign finance law 101.
He can’t reasonably claim to be merely testing the waters of candidacy and thus exempt from candidate filing requirements. He is a candidate and is obligated to abide by all the rules and make the same disclosures required of everyone else running for federal office.
Ritchie’s response to the allegations was so typical ‘Kid Rock’ that we should have expected it:
I am starting to see reports from the misinformed press and the fake news on how I am in violation of breaking campaign law. #1: I have still not officially announced my candidacy. #2: See #1 and go f— yourselves.
True to form and just like his idol, Trump, Ritchie blamed the report on ‘Fake News’ and claimed that he and he alone was right and that there was no violation of any laws. This total and complete disregard for the laws of this country while claiming to support our laws is the definition of hypocrisy. Some star-struck Republican lawmakers are already getting wet and sloppy just thinking about serving in the Senate with this reprobate.
How could we possibly expect this (and I use this word with some hesitation) man to uphold his oath of office (should he win) when he can’t even travel on the right road to campaigning legally?
