Sassy Liberty AMERICA’S FREEDOM FIGHTERS –

It seems the left is truly threatened by Kid Rock and his potential Senate bid against sitting Sen. Debbie Stabenow (D-MI). A leftist watchdog group known as Common Cause is filing an ethics complaint claiming Kid Rock is in violation of campaign finance law, except he has not even formally announced his candidacy.

Kid Rock had a strong message for the “misinformed press” and the “fake news” in an announcement on his website on Friday.

I am starting to see reports from the misinformed press and the fake news on how I am in violation of breaking campaign law.

#2 See #1 and go fuck yourselves. 

Everyone else, Have a great Labor Day (I will be spending mine WORKING in one of the greatest cities in America – Grand Rapids, Michigan!!)

Rock on.

Kid Rock 

Kid Rock, whose given name is Robert Ritchie, has been toying with a possible entry into the political scene for several weeks. He has been testing the waters, as well as selling T-shirts bearing a campaign logo and the words “Kid Rock for Senate.”

Paul S. Ryan, Common Cause’s vice president for policy and litigation, said in a Friday statement –

“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.”

Many Republicans and Independents believe he would be an excellent candidate to win against Stabenow, though many have also expressed skepticism about whether he will actually move forward with the idea of launching a campaign.

According to election law, federal candidates are required to collect the personal information of all donors that contribute more than $50.00 at a time and disclose that information to the Federal Election Commission for any donors who give more than $200.00 in total. There are also donation limitations and prohibitions that a candidate must abide by. However, the law also states that a person does not become a candidate until they have either declared themselves as such or they have spent or raised $5,000.00.

The loophole is that potential candidates are allowed to forgo all of those requirements as long as they are genuinely “testing the waters” with no firm decision as to whether or not to run. As soon as definitive steps are taken towards a genuine run for candidacy though, the person is required to file their candidacy with the Federal Election Commission.  It is also required that disclosure rules be followed at that time and a retroactive disclosure of their “testing the waters” spending is required.

What is interesting is these rules are rarely enforced, yet here is the left attempting to hold someone on the right to a standard they are not willing to hold themselves to.  This could force Kid Rock’s hand and speed up the decision-making process as to whether he will actually run or not.
