The complaint suggests Kanye's campaign submitted bogus signatures and includes affidavits from people who claim they were tricked into signing their names on Yeezy's paperwork.

Rapper Kanye West has qualified as an independent presidential candidate for Arkansas.

According to a report citing White House correspondent and CNN political analyst, April Ryan, the presidential hopeful could be subject to an election-fraud probe after a review of the legitimacy of his petition.

Lawyers and activists with GOP ties in have been involved in efforts in Arkansas and other states to get West on the ballot, fuelling suspicions that he's being pushed by Trump allies hoping to siphon support away from former Vice President Joe Biden.

West's name was withdrawn from the New Jersey ballot on August 7 by New Jersey Secretary of State Tahesha Way because of questionable signatures.

Moreover, West needed to submit over 2,400 signatures by 5 p.m. on August 4 to be placed on the Wisconsin ballot.

The 23-page document says that a state Elections Commission staffer told a West campaign aide that she turned in the nomination papers 14 seconds after the deadline.
