Kanye West’s Presidential Campaign was secretly led by GOP Backers
Kanye West’s presidential election has driven a wedge between him and Kim Kardashian. Turns out there’s a lot more to this story than that.
According to a series of documents exhumed from the Daily Beast, Kanye West’s “independent” presidential election was indeed supported and led by GOP elites. He appears to have hidden millions of dollars in services received from a secret network of Republican Party agents.
Kanye’s 2020 campaign committee didn’t even mention he paid one of those advisers. They used one odd acronym for another – actions which campaign finance experts say is meant to disguise the connection between well-known GOP agents and the campaign. This could be a violation of federal law.
Paul S. Ryan, said the disclosures were “a major problem.” Ryan told the Daily Beast his thoughts on the matter.
“The importance of disclosure in this matter can’t be overstated, it’s no secret that Kanye West’s candidacy would have a spoiler effect, siphoning votes from Democrat Joe Biden. Voters had a right to know that a high-powered Republican lawyer was providing legal services to Kanye—and federal law requires disclosure of such legal work.”
Kanye West has not commented on this situation.
