Kanye West’s stealthy 2020 presidential campaign tried to benefit Donald Trump

Kanye West’s stealthy 2020 presidential campaign tried to benefit Donald Trump

Republican operatives used Kanye West ‘s unsuccessful 2020 presidential bid as an opportunity to stealthily syphon votes from Joe Biden , a newly-published report says.
The report lays out how powerful conservatives quietly managed the Grammy winning musician’s campaign in an effort to divide Democratic voters during the hotly-contested presidential race.
When announcing his candidacy July 4, 2020, West signaled that he no longer supported then-president Donald Trump and that he would either run as a Republican if Trump dropped out, or as an independent if not.
He denied at the time that his aim was to split the black vote and hurt the chances of Biden. It was ‘a form of racism and white supremacy’ to suggest all black people should support the Democrats, he said.
It’s now been revealed that West’s camp hid its connections to Republican hot shots, including influential party advisor and Virginia Senator Jill Vogel, when building his  campaign.
It’s not clear whether West knowingly participated in the alleged scheme, but he hinted he’d been misled when abruptly withdrawing from the race ahead of the vote.

West’s campaign team intentionally concealed its connections to conservative operatives in a move that might have breached federal election laws
Despite court documents reflecting that Vogel worked the campaign, her name did not appear in FEC filings and the omission might have breached federal election laws, The Daily Beast  reported.
Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington spokesman Jordan Libowitz called the effort ‘amateur hour.’
‘It’s very clear that the whole point behind Kanye’s campaign was to try to re-elect Donald Trump,’ he told the outlet. ‘Whether that was a goal of Kanye is another issue. But he was clearly seen as a way to steal potential votes from Biden.’
A source  close to the case denied claims that West was used as a political pawn and said both Republicans and Democrats were tapped to lead his campaign.
During a four-hour interview with Forbes last year, West said he envisioned a White House management model based on the secret country of Wakanda in the film Black Panther.
The musician said he initially supported Trump because he allowed ‘God to be part of the conversation’ and added that he wore the MAGA hat ‘to protest the segregation of votes in the black community.’

West said he was pro-life and anti-jab, calling vaccines ‘the mark of the beast.’
On abortion: West said that his belief in God and the words of the bible have led him to be pro-life. He acknowledged that he had not yet developed a foreign policy.
Weeks before the presidential election, West announced his withdrawal from the race in a stunning announcement.
He claimed in a longwinded Twitter rant that longwinded Twitter rant he had been ‘used to spread messages I don’t believe in.’
‘My eyes are now wide open,’ he said. ‘I am distancing myself from politics and completely focusing on being creative.’

Republican Vogel, managing partner of law firm Hotzman Vogel, worked on West’s campaign – despite him running as an independent, court documents obtained by the Daily Beast revealed.
The Republican lawmaker advised the campaign beginning in summer 2020 and was ‘basically behind it all’ despite her name not appearing on FEC filings, 2020 Air Jordan 6 Retro Washed Denim Basketball For Sale a source told the outlet.
Libowitz said it’s possible Vogel might have sought to fly under-the-radar to spare herself from ‘any embarrassment that may come with being publicly affiliated with the train wreck that was the Kanye campaign.’
He added: ‘It’s also likely that she did not want people to know that a Republican operative was behind his campaign.’
It’s not a crime for lawyers to volunteer their service to for political purposes, but campaigns are obliged to report the amount value of the in-kind service and disclose the person’s identity.
Court documents showed that Vogel used her professional email in correspondence related to West’s campaign.
Common Cause vice president Paul S. Ryan said that if Holtzman Vogel’s involvement in the campaign was extensive and not disclosed in the FEC filings, it could be considered an illegal contribution.
‘The importance of disclosure in this matter can’t be overstated,’ Ryan told The Daily Beast. ‘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.’

FEC filings show West’s campaign paid $20,000 to GSP Inc., which is believed to be an acronym for Grand Slam Finance
West’s campaign garnered less than $4,000 in donations and was largely funded by loans from the rapper
Questions were also raised about West’s campaign using an acronym in an apparent attempt to downplay its involvement with Grand Slam Finance, which it referred to as ‘GSF’ in campaign filings.
The Austin, Texas-based company has been hired on other occasions to help Republican campaigns, and West’s team paid the firm about $692,000 for ‘compliance’ and ‘accounting,’ the Daily Beast reported.
Legal documents reviewed by the outlet confirmed that Grand Slam Finance worked extensively with Kanye’s campaign.
Ryan labeled the disclosures as ‘strange’ and said it was unusual for a consultant to be ‘suddenly banking way more than it previously has for services, all from one campaign.’
West’s music manager John Boyd denied that musician was used as a Republican pawn but noted that he didn’t have complete control over the campaign.
‘He had companies, individuals working for him, I don’t even know if he knew what they were doing that deeply. That’s my personal view,’ Boyd told the Daily Beast. ‘There were definitely agendas out there that perhaps he didn’t have full control over.’
West’s campaign garnered less than $4,000 in donations and was largely funded by loans from the rapper himself. About 60,000 people voted for him during the presidential election that drew nearly 160 million  voters.
But critics said it’s unlikely that the campaign’s Republican ties was a coincidence.
‘You’re not just going to trip and find your way into these Republican circles,’ Libowitz said. ‘BakerHostetler works for the Republican National Committee,’ he said, referencing a New York firm which Kanye 2020 paid $152,000 a full mo

While Nicole did not find love on the Netlfix show, she went on to date her co-star Bryce Hirschberg after the show wrapped, making their relationship public last April.
They called it quits later in the year due to the travel restrictions posed by COVID-19, as Bryce lives in Marina Del Rey, California, and Nicole calls the UK home.

A representative for Bryce, 30, told People at the time: ‘I can confirm that Bryce and Nicole decided mutually to split early last week after months of trying to make a long-distance relationship work.’
Bryce also made a statement: ‘After the many failed attempts to reunite due to quarantine and border restrictions, we decided that moving on and remaining friends would be our best option for the time being.
