Kanye West for mayor campaign?

Posted: Updated:
CHICAGO (FOX 32 News) - One man is determined to have Kanye West as the next mayor of Chicago, according to an article by MTV.

Artist and writer Ben Shepard is attempting to inspire West to run for mayor by setting up a website called ‘Kanye 4 Mayor.’

Shepard is not satisfied with the current leadership in Chicago under Mayor Rahm Emanuel. He calls Emanuel “a servant of a very narrow elite who exerts massive public relations energy to disguise this fact.”

Shepard wrote:

“The ideal candidate has three qualities. (1) They share a vision of a New Chicago for and by all Chicagoans. (2) They are famous, because fame is crystallized charismatic authority and this kind of big change needs significant authority. (3) They are not associated with existing Chicago politics and willing to use creative methods.”

West has yet to respond.
