Kanye West’s Campaign Is Filled to the Brim With GOP Operatives

In court documents filed Friday in a lawsuit for ballot access in Wisconsin, the 43-year-old rapper listed his mailing address as that of the top Republican law firm Holtzman Vogel Josefiak Torchinsky. Jill Holtzman Vogel, a state senator in Virginia who was the GOP nominee for lieutenant governor in 2017, is the firm’s managing partner.

Vogel, best known nationally for her proposed legislation to effectively mandate transvaginal ultrasounds for any woman seeking an abortion, is the former chief counsel of the Republican National Committee.

one of the electors pledged to support West’s campaign, Tracy Barkalow, not only had a “Trump 2020” cover photo but also shared racially inflammatory right-wing content on his Facebook page, including a photo labeled “White Lives Matter.”

West’s campaign strategist, veteran Republican operative Gregg Keller, tweeted his support last weekend of an effort to raise money for the legal defense of Kyle Rittenhouse, the white 17-year-old accused of murdering two people in Kenosha, Wisconsin, last week.
