Kanye West’s Treasurer Resigns From Political Campaign

Kanye West's political team is experiencing even more shake-ups. On Monday morning, his campaign committee treasurer, Patrick Krason, announced his resignation. Krason made the decision official in a letter filed to the Federal Election Commission.

"I have notified the campaign of my resignation and they have been made aware of the requirement to name a new treasurer within 10 days," Krason said in his letter, obtained by TMZ. "I have also made them aware that they cannot raise or spend campaign funds until a new treasurer has been named. Please do not hesitate to reach out with any questions or concerns."

Krason's resignation comes days after Ye fired right-wing pundit and white nationalist Nick Fuentes. In doing so, West also re-hired Milo Yiannopoulos to the team. TMZ also obtained an email Yiannopoulos sent to Fuentes confirming his termination. "As you may know, I have been in Los Angeles for the past week with Ye. discussing his presidential aspirations," Yiannopoulos began. "The result of those discussions is that I will be taking the reins once again as director of his political operations. Your services on Ye's exploratory team are terminated as of this letter, and will not be required for any possible future campaign. But I am writing to inform you that you may, if you choose, offer yourself to Ye as a remote unpaid advisor. This private and confidential position may not be made public."

It was previously reported that Ye pulled out of the 2024 presidential race altogether. According to Rolling Stone, West was unhappy with infighting among the advisors during his campaign. In recent weeks, Kanye has spent time co-parenting his four children with his ex-wife, Kim Kardashian. He further attended his son Saint's latest soccer game in Tarzana over the weekend.
