Cannabis party candidate says GOP operative recruited him

AP write by way of introduction.…..A blind and permanently disabled Minnesota veteran says a Republican operative deceived him into becoming part of a GOP strategy to use pro-marijuana political parties to siphon off votes from Democratic candidates.

Kevin “NeSe” Shores, of Moorhead who suffers from Gulf War illness and uses a wheelchair, used cannabis to get off painkillers. He ran for Congress on the Grassroots Legalize Cannabis Party ticket last year, and told KMSP-TV for a story that aired Sunday that he assumed the person recruiting him was from that party.

“I was under the impression he was a part of that political party,” Shores said. “That was my assumption.”

He was wrong. The man who recruited him to run for the seat held by Democratic Rep. Collin Peterson was GOP strategist Kip Christianson who was on the payroll of the Republican National Committee, according to the Federal Election Commission, the station reported. Shores said Christianson even paid the $300 filing fee.
