On Monday, the parties executive director Jim Joice filed an objection over Supreme’s residency. Supreme, a Baltimore resident, has moved to the Liberty House located in Topeka to run for office.
CJ Online reported that last month the State Objections Board removed a man from New York City who intended to run for governor. The decision followed a ruling from Shawnee County District Court that gubernatorial candidates must live in Kansas.
Supreme was not available for comment at this time. The objections board will be who decides if Supreme is allowed to stay on the ballot against Schmidt.
On Friday, the state of Kansas got their first taste of ponynomics 101 as Vermin Supreme officially filed his paperwork and paid the fees to run for Attorney General.
Supreme was initially expected to run as a Democrat, but at the last minute surprised both parties by announcing he had decided to run against current Attorney General Derek Schmidt in the Republican primaries.
Shortly before Supreme filed his paperwork, Lawrence-based criminal attorney Sarah Swain was announced as the Democratic candidate for Attorney General.
There is a concern the powers that be will search for a reason to boot Supreme from the ballot. Supreme is acting as a realist and appreciates that he may not stand a chance to beat Schmidt in the primaries but that is not going to stop him from trying.
Knowing his chances of winning the Republican primary are slim to none, Supreme openly admits that he would not have spent his own money on the $1,660 filing fee. The money was raised by people who wanted to see Supreme run in the election. Being a man that has spent countless years serving the people, how could he possibly say no?
