On again/off again presidential spoiler Kanye West submitted a petition Monday to appear on the New Jersey ballot for president that contained 1,327 signatures – far more than 800 required.
He’s not officially on it yet, though. Apparently, from now until July 31 at 5 PM, there’s an objection period where someone can challenge the validity of individual signatures submitted. If there are no objections, he gets a place on the ballot.
This, of course, all sounds too familiar. TMZ broke the story … he’s facing a huge hurdle in his home state of Illinois after several objections over the validity of signatures gathered to get on that state’s ballot. As we reported … one of the objectors says he reviewed roughly 3,200 signatures but claims to have found less than 1,000 valid signatures in Kanye’s docs. A hearing is set for next week on that issue.
