Brad Schroeder is representing two Iowa citizens in their challenge to the Iowa candidacy of Kanye West in the November 3rd Presidential election. The challenge is based on Mr. West swearing in his Affidavit of Candidacy and nominating petitions that he was not a member of any political party at the time he secured the required signatures to be on the ballot in Iowa. However, Mr. West is registered as a Republican.
“It has been a long-held principle in election law that candidates should provide eligible electors with enough information to make an informed decision whether to sign a nominating petition,” Schroeder said. “That information should begin with whether the candidate is a member of a political party.”
