The Kanye West presidential campaign has been struggling to get on state ballots for November's election, and now it seems his name won't appear on ballots in Illinois and Wisconsin. In Illinois, West was required to submit 2,500 signatures from registered voters to get on the ballot. He far exceeded that and submitted 3,218 signatures. However, the board of elections for the state found that 1,928 of them are fake or invalid.

West is also facing problems in Wisconsin where the state's democratic party has filed a complaint claiming that many of the signatures he filed to get on the ballot there are fake. He needed 2,000 and signatures and submitted 2,400. But many of them are very suspicious with names like Mickey Mouse and Bernie Sanders.

The Election Commission for the state will review the complaint and make a recommendation. The complaint also highlights several people who say they were lied to about what they were singing or were offered bribes to sign.

It's been widely reported that republican operatives are working in several states to get West on the ballot in order to steal votes away from democratic candidate Joe Biden.

"I like Kanye very much," Trump said at the White House last week. "I have nothing to do with him being on the ballot. I'm not involved."

On Friday, West got strong support from controversial Fox News host Tucker Carlson, who obviously has an interest in seeing the rapper do well on the ballot.

"On core conservative issues… no one with a national platform has been more honest or sincere or effective than Kanye West has been, maybe in generations," Carlson said.

He went on to say that "not everything he says is conservative," but when West talks about religion and being anti-abortion "you start to ask yourself why aren't there any elected Republicans who sound like that?"

Carlson claimed that republicans are "afraid" to talk about conservative topics in the way that West does.

West's personal life has been in turmoil ever since his bizarre presidential campaign rally earlier this month in South Carolina, where he failed to submit enough signatures to get on the ballot there. During the event, West revealed that he and Kardashian considered having an abortion when she was pregnant with their first child, North.

In his string of tweets the following day, West said that he has wanted to get a divorce from Kardashian ever since she met with rapper Meek Mill in private in 2018.
