Kid Rock donates merchandise money for voter registration

Hannah Rogers | 23 January, 2018, 17:54

Ted Dooley, president of CRNC Action, an affiliate of the College Republicans, confirmed a donation was made in December and that the group worked at voter registration tables at Kid Rock's concerts over the summer. The group organized voter registration drives at Kid Rock concerts past year, the same publicist said.

The 47-year-old musician, real name Robert James Ritchie, was thrown into the mix last year (17) as one of the Republican contenders for Michigan Democrat Debbie Stabenow's Senate seat. He hawked T-shirts bearing the message "Kid Rock for US Senate" and other political merchandise through the Warner Bros.

For some who knew him, it was pretty evident all along that Kid Rock was never running for U.S. Senate.

Meanwhile, the watchdog group Common Cause has filed a complaint with the FEC and the U.S. Department of Justice, alleging violated federal election laws by raising campaign funds without registering his candidacy.

Ritchie later blasted the reports as "fake news", telling the media to "go f-- yourselves".

"(Saying I was going to run was) the worst advice that I ever gave myself, but it's been the most creative thing I've ever done, and I gotten to see everyone's true colours (sic)". "Are you f--ing shitting me?" he asked Stern.

"I have people that work for me, they're on the in, I'm like, 'F-- no we're not doing it".
