Kid Rock fired back at the media and left-leaning watchdog group Common Cause on Friday over accusations that he is violating federal election law by failing to register as a candidate for the U.S. Senate and complying with campaign contributions rules.
“I am starting to see reports from the misinformed press and the fake news on how I am in violation of breaking campaign law,” the veteran rocker wrote in a blog post on his website.
“#1. I have still not officially announced my candidacy,” he wrote, adding: “#2 See #1 and go f*ck yourselves.”
Common Cause filed a complaint with the Federal Election Commission and U.S. Department of Justice, accusing Rock — real name Robert Ritchie — of selling political merchandise and accepting financial contributions for an election campaign, while not registering his candidacy.
