KANYE WEST’S FINANCIAL DISCLOSURES FROM PRESIDENTIAL CAMPAIGN DENIED – (04/22/2021)
Kanye West’s disclosure of his presidential campaign related finances has been rejected by the office of Government Ethics. According to The Jasmine Brand, the Office of Government Ethics (OGE) has not specified the reason behind its refusal to certify Kanye West‘s financial disclosures. However, a group called the Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington (CREW) has revealed that the denial is likely as a result of Kanye West failing to provide information on his soon-to-be ex wife Kim Kardashian‘s assets.
Kanye reportedly claimed to have no knowledge of Kardashian’s assets or financial income information. It is also speculated that he falsely claimed he was exempt from providing this information.
A statement regarding the OGE’s decision is on CREW’s website. It reads, “By refusing to certify it, OGE sends a message that it does not believe that West is in compliance with the law.”
Kanye spent $12 million on his presidential campaign.
