Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Mediaite.com: “Kanye West Has Reportedly Asked His Campaign Staff to Stop 'Fornicating' Outside of Marriage”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

Kanye West’s “perplexing” presidential run is at the center of a new piece in the New York Times. According to individuals involved in the rapper’s campaign, he has an unusual request for his staffers, who he’s told to stop “fornicating” outside of marriage.

West, who invented the “Birthday Party” as his political affiliation, entered the presidential race too late to make the ballot in most states. New York Magazine reported in July that the rapper has around 180 people on his campaign staff, many of whom were tasked with getting him on the ballots in Florida and Texas. Their efforts were unsuccessful, but he’ll appear on the ballot in nine states, including Colorado, Minnesota and Iowa. Still, it remains statistically impossible for him to earn enough electoral votes to become president.

Some Democrats worry that West’s last-minute campaign will take away votes from Joe Biden. Others believe the rapper’s conservative positions fall more in line with President Donald Trump’s base. West’s strong Christian beliefs permeate many of his political views, including bringing prayer back to schools and giving more government support to religious groups.

West communicated with the New York Times through a series of calls and texts, which the newspaper suggested were erratic. At one point, he insisted on speaking to the editor via Zoom. “I’m Kanye, who are you?” West asked when the editor joined the Zoom call. The rapper added, “I’m the head of everything,” before criticizing the Democrats’ view on abortion and asking, “Does anyone at your magazine believe in Jesus?”

West’s anti-abortion sentiment has been a major part of his campaign. The New York Times reported that it’s the topic he brought up most in their discussions, although he isn’t for banning abortions. ““You can’t do that,” he said. “I don’t want to ban or stop or point fingers at anything.”
