Kanye West’s nomination papers challenged in Wisconsin


Madison (AP) - Rapper Kanye West's attempt to get on Wisconsin's presidential ballot as a third-party candidate is being challenged.

A challenge filed Friday with the Wisconsin Election Commission alleges that West's nomination papers were delivered too late and don't properly list his residency.

A second challenge raises additional issues. A former attorney for the Wisconsin Republican Party who dropped off West's nomination papers this week didn't immediately return a message Friday.

Democrats allege Republicans are aiding West's candidacy to siphon votes from Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden.
