Kid Rock is firing back against claims in that he violated crusade finance law.
On Friday, September 1, nonprofit organization Common Cause filed a complaint against the rocker, claiming in that he’s been campaigning for Senate throughout the summer without registering with the FEC.
â€œI am starting to see reports from the misinformed press and the fake news on how I am in violation of breaking crusade law,â€� Rock, whose real name is Robert James Richie, asserted in a acknowledgment to TheWrap on Friday, September 1. â€œNo. 1: I have still not officially formally announced my candidacy. No. 2: See #1 and go f–k yourselves.â€�
As previously reported, the singer 1st teased a Michigan Senate run in July, when he confirmed the validity of a new political-based website offering merchandise in addition to a hat, t-shirt, yard sign and stickers in support of his campaign.
“I have had a ton of emails and texts asking me if this website is realâ€¦â€� the Michigan native wrote on July 12. “The answer is an absolute YES.â€�
Shortly after, Rock opened up once again about the decision in a lengthy post on his website, saying he was seriously “exploring” the idea. He wrote on July 26: â€œI was beyond overwhelmed with the response I received from community leaders, D.C. pundits and blue-collar folks in that are just simply tired of the extreme left and right bullsh-t.”
