Noted Apple fan Kanye West is blaming the iPhone’s clock for his failure to turn in the correct nomination signatures on time in Wisconsin for his U.S. presidential bid.

State laws say the papers had to be filed “not later” than 5 p.m. local time on Monday. Unfortunately, West’s campaign submitted them 14 seconds after the 5 p.m. deadline. West’s lawyer argues that, because it was before 5:01 p.m., the paperwork should still be admitted.
