Two months ago, Kim Kardashian was just one of several big names to publicly endorse self help guru Marianne Williamson in her bid for Congress. Williamson failed to win yesterday’s Democratic primary and, while that loss certainly is not Kim Kardashian’s fault, some of the candidate’s Facebook supporters are upset by the Keeping Up With The Kardashians star’s failure to donate to the campaign.
Kim Kardashian and Kanye West aren’t exactly well-regarded in the political arena. President Obama referred to Kanye as a “jacka**” after the hip hop artist famously confronted Taylor Swift. Other politicians have been similarly dismissive of the Keeping Up With The Kardashians clan. But Marianne Williamson seemed perfectly eager to receive Kim Kardashian’s help when the reality star expressed interest in the campaign a few months ago.
In April, Kim wrote about meeting the candidate at a press event, also sharing her intention to vote on June 3rd. She apparently did not intend to support the campaign financially, however, as records from the Federal Election Commission indicate that the reality star failed to donate a single cent. Several other celebrities did wind up donating to the campaign, however. Melanie Griffith, Nancy Sinatra, Rainn Wilson, Eva Longoria and several others were happy to lend their financial support.
Twitter followers have been quick to remind critics that there are multiple ways to support a campaign, adding that Kim was by no means obligated to contribute money. That being said, a donation from the celeb would have served as a very nice gesture.
What do you think? Should Kim Kardashian have donated money to Marianne Williamson’s campaign? Feel free to share your opinion in the comments section below!
