Kanye West Could Face Election Fraud Investigation

According to reports, Kanye West was has been removed from the ballot in his home state of Illinois, sparking what could be an election-fraud investigation into his campaign.  After Illinois did a review on the legitimacy of Kanye West’s ballot, it was revealed that more than half of the 3,128 signatures submitted were invalid.  Illinois requires at least 2,500 signatures to have a name officially added to the ballot for it to count.

No word on what names were not valid, but some names could include,

“Illegible names, non-registered voters, or people providing fakes names or addresses.”

Since the state will be removing his name come Aug. 21, it’s suggested that Kanye West could have an election-fraud investigation against him.  He will also be disqualified from running in New Jersey as well due to the signature mixup.

Many people are suggesting that Kanye West is getting paid from Donald Trump’s team to split the Democratic vote and hurt Joe Biden’s campaign.


Earlier today (August 10th) singer Stephanie Mills also implied that Kanye West was being paid by Donald Trump, and slammed Nick Cannon for supporting Kanye West’s Presidential run.

“I must say that I am disappointed because if he’s trying to help our community, but running for President, it’s not helping out our community.  He’s not qualified, to be President, neither is the person that’s in the White House at this time.”


“Kanye’s being paid to do what he’s doing, now are we to believe that you’re [Nick Cannon] also being paid to be a distraction?”

Although Kanye has recently renounced his support of current President Donald Trump, he seems to still be connected with his administration and is working with the Secretary of Education, Betsy DeVos. He told Forbes via text in an interview,

“I’m meeting with Betsy DeVos [the current Secretary of Education] about the post-Covid curriculum.”

He also praised Trump, saying that he is

“the closest president we’ve had in years to allowing God to still be part of the conversation.”

His comments come off the heels of his former friend John Legend seemingly calling him out on Twitter. The Grammy-winning singer and pianist retweeted information from a news article that indicated a Republican lawyer had actually worked to get Kanye on the Wisconsin ballot. John Legend replied,

“Anyway…. Anyone reckless and/or misinformed enough to fall for the okey doke probably wasn’t voting for Biden (or voting at all).”
