Poor Rob Wasinger. Running for Congress is HARD! There are so many things to have to try to get right, like campaign finance filings, hiring staff who aren’t unhinged lunatics, sending out competent emails, and so forth. Sometimes, it appears the little guy is just overwhelmed by it all.
But now we know Wasinger can’t even get his voter registration right. We knew he ran for Congress in 2010 in his home state of Kansas, and that he would have had to interrupt his Virginia voter registration to do that. Problem is, he doesn’t seem to have interrupted his Kansas registration to run here in Virginia. As one of his hometown Kansas newspapers reported yesterday:
As of Thursday, Wasinger was still a registered voter in Kansas â€“ and a registered voter in Virginia.
The News was not able to verify with authorities in Virginia if Wasinger was a registered voter in Fairfax County, Va., where he lives and is seeking the 10th Congressional District seat. State law prevents such disclosure by long distance, although records can be inspected in the office in Virginia, according to Fairfax County General Registrar Cameron Quinn.
Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobachâ€™s office confirmed, though, Wasinger is registered in both Chase County in Kansas and in Virginia.
Wasinger registered in Ellis County in 2008, according to Reno Countyâ€™s Deputy Election Officer Jenna Fager, and shifted his registration to Chase County in 2009. He lost the August 2010 GOP primary to Tim Huelskamp. The last ballot Wasinger cast in Kansas was in April 2011.
In 2012, he registered in Virginia, according to Kay Curtis, director of public affairs for Kobach.
Sheesh!! Why does Wasinger even think he’s got a chance here? Why is he wasting the voters’ time when he cannot even get the very basics of running for office right?
As we’ve said before, this guy has no business representing Virginia in Congress.
