Kanye West for Mayor of Chicago? A superfan has already started his election campaign
Politics in the Windy City may be about to get a bit cooler...
Kanye West is one of the most opinionated personalities on the planet and he also talks complete sh*te at times, so you'd imagine he'd make a perfect politician.
One fan certainly thinks so and he believes in Kanye so much that he set up Kanye West for Mayor of Chicago 2015, which is pretty self explanatory and to JOE's surprise, this isn't a joke.
Ben, who set up the site says: "I don’t like the direction that the city is heading in and think that an internally diverse, multi-pronged social movement lead by a charismatic and problematic leader is the best way to ahead another direction. Kanye West is the best such leader I can think of, so that’s why I made this website and am organising this show."
We know Kanye and his new wife Kim Kardashian are currently busy on their honeymoon in Cork, if the rumours are to be believed. Ben has a special surprise waiting for the rapper when he returns home because he's written an open letter to his potential new leader.
The entire open letter is here and you have to hand it to Ben, the amount of effort he's put into this is massive, so he genuinely believes Kanye is the man to lead the people of Chicago.
Mayor West does have a ring to it. But, to be honest, we prefer this Mayor West...
