As per reports, Kanye West’s 2020 failed election Campaign cost him a whopping $12 Million. According to the final Federal Election Commission report, Ye admitted to spending a total of $12.4 Million from his pocket, whereas the donors passed funds of $2 Million. The largely self-funded “Birthday Party” party spent $13.2 million of a total of $14,538,989.74 with campaign contributions.
The reports further notify us that $7.5 million was splurged to get Kanye’s name mentioned on ballots which was an extremely tedious process. Announcing his run for presidency months before the Election, important FEC deadlines were violated, and signature protocols were not met, barring the legendary rapper from being included on the ballot in many states.
In the end, Ye only managed to gather 60,000 votes and made himself a subject to memes and backlash.
