KANYE WEST HAS SPENT ALMOST $6M ON HIS PRESIDENTIAL CAMPAIGN

Kanye West isn’t giving up on his longshot presidential bid. According to his campaign’s financial report filed with the Federal Election Commission on Friday (September 4), Yeezy has poured about $5.86 million of his own money into the campaign. Ye has also already loaned the campaign $6.7 million over the course of July and August.

He’s fielded a handful of donations from U.S. citizens that range from $200 upwards of $1,000. The financial report also discloses the campaign has compiled $1.2 million worth of debt so far, which is nearly all owed to Tempe, Arizona’s Fortified Consulting.

On Thursday (September 3), a judge ruled that Kanye would not be allowed to appear on the November 3 ballot in Arizona. A voter’s legal team argued Ye being on the ballot would confuse voters and opened up the possibility of creating “irreparable harm” if he did make the cut as an “election spoiler.”

Kanye easily cleared the 39,000 signature threshold in the state to get on the ballot prior to the ruling and his lawyers are expected to appeal the ruling to the Arizona Supreme Court.
