Hearing Kanye West is running for president elicits a collective groan from many. But the same was said of President Donald Trump in 2016, so perhaps we should pay attention. The legal community certainly is, as according to FEC campaign disbursement disclosures, West’s presidential campaign, Kanye2020, spent a little over $400,000 in legal fees in July and August of this year. 

The designation “legal fee” under the disbursement description in Kanye2020’s filings include one Am Law 100 firm, Husch Blackwell (No. 100), which was paid $20,000, and a series of smaller, more boutique firms such as New York’s Pardalis & Nohavicka, which got $130,000 from Kanye.
