[Madison, WI] – Following the decision by the Wisconsin Elections Commission to bar Kanye West from the ballot, Republican Party of Wisconsin Executive Director Mark Jefferson released the following statement:
“Wisconsin Democrats successfully fought to deny ballot access to an African American because he was seconds late with his paperwork, but they want to override Wisconsin law by delaying the deadline to accept absentee ballots because six weeks of ballot harvesting may not be enough for them to win. Let that sink in.
“The left wants to clear any liberal competition for Democrats, while ensuring a Libertarian is on the ballot to siphon votes from Republicans. Democrats are only interested in voter enfranchisement if they believe they will benefit. If they don’t benefit, they don’t care.”
