The Independent reports:
Lawyers for Kanye West have argued that signatures from Mickey Mouse and Bernie Sanders must be proven to be fake or else should be accepted on the nomination papers to qualify the rapper for the presidential ballot in Wisconsin.
Following attempts to block West from running for president in November, lawyer Michael Curran submitted a 23-page response to the Wisconsin Elections Commission saying technical challenges over signatures were “misguided and ill-informed”.
Mr Curran wrote that the burden is on the complainant to prove by “clear and convincing evidence” that the signatures are fake and should be stricken from the nomination papers.
As I previously reported, the petition signatures were turned in by a lawyer for the Trump campaign.
