Instead of solidifying policies and campaigning, Kanye seems to be spending most of his time just three months ahead of the election to get his name on state ballots. According to NewsWeek, he’s filed for Missouri, Arkansas, Vermont, West Virginia, Illinois and New Jersey, however, many of them are in the process of verifying the legitimacy of the signatures. He’s also in the process of filing for Wisconsin, just submitted for Ohio, and is already on the ballot in Oklahoma.
Many have noticed a number of right-wing operatives helping Kanye West get on the ballot have ties to President Donald Trump, according to CNN. Many believe this means that Trump is using Kanye as a pawn to divert votes from Biden, ultimately helping him win. Trump affiliates in Wisconsin supposedly helped collect signatures for Kanye, and similar actions were reportedly taken in Vermont and Arkansas. Trump, however, has denied allegations that he is involved with Kanye’s efforts to run.
“I like Kanye very much,” Trump said at the White House on Wednesday, Aug. 5, according to Meaww. “I have nothing to do with him being on the ballot. I’m not involved.” However, many are still skeptical that he may be somewhat involved.
