The latest news on this front comes from a really interesting article at Ballot Access News written by the widely-respected election expert and advocate for third party/independent ballot access Richard Winger:
On September 8, 2020, the Arizona Supreme Court issued a short order in West v Clayton, CV-20-0249, saying Kanye West could not be on the Arizona November ballot as an independent candidate for president because his candidates for presidential elector had not filed statements of Economic Interest. The Court said it would explain its reasoning later.
Four months have passed, and the court still hasn’t issued its explanation. It will probably be very difficult for the Arizona Supreme Court to explain its action. No one ever before had interpreted the Arizona law to mean that candidates for presidential elector must file campaign finance documents. No other state has ever required candidates for presidential elector to file campaign finance statements. The Arizona Secretary of State’s website has very clear instructions for independent presidential candidates and the Secretary of State’s website had never said that presidential elector candidates must file such documents.
According to Biography.com, Kanye West is a “Grammy Award-winning rapper and record producer and fashion designer. Outspoken and prone to controversy, he became additional celebrity fodder with his marriage to Kim Kardashian”. Also, see the complete Democracy Chronicles collection of Celebrity Politics articles. In the democratic world where popular artists and other thinkers are free to criticize the government, celebrities have often gone into politics. Celebrities represent a pool of potential political candidates who are usually self-made individuals and, at the very least, not related to previous politicians.
