Definitely, it seems that Kanye West is heading for new legal problems. On Monday, Patrick Krason, treasurer of his campaign for the 2024 US presidential election, slammed the door. In a letter to the federal election commission obtained by Politico, it expresses suspicions of fraudulent financing of which a certain Milo Yiannopoulos, political adviser of the rapper, would be at the origin.
The latter, a British columnist and polemicist of the extreme right, would have "submitted falsified invoices for expenses" that the treasurer considers "illegal". Expenses that would concern a "digital asset" that Milo Yiannopoulos would have requested reimbursement on behalf of both the campaign of Kanye West and that of the Republican candidate of Georgia, Marjorie Taylor Greene.
Milo Yiannopoulos denies en bloc
Asked to answer for these accusations by Politico, Milo Yiannopoulos said he would give "no credence to these ridiculous and easily refutable accusations". For now, Kanye West has not officially filed his candidacy for the 2024 presidential election.
However, the presence of clothes displaying the Ye 24 logo in a video published on Twitter last November and since removed leaves little doubt about the political ambitions of the sulphurous and whimsical rapper.
