Obama Refused To Let Kim Kardashian Help His Campaign

Because she was "political poison"...
Radar Online reports that President Barack Obama's campaign did not want Kim Kardashian to endorse him and "wanted nothing to do with her". This came after she reached out several times to campaign for him during his 2012 re-election.
A source said: "[She] wanted to be a ‘surrogate' for the campaign. They wanted nothing to do with her. She was not the young, cool, image they wanted to portray at all. Even though she kept asking, the campaign would never let her do anything in an official capacity. Kim is political poison. Having her involved in a political event or with a candidate is the last thing people who are serious about getting elected want."
Kardashian made an appearance at Independent congressional candidate Marianne Williamson's fundraiser in Los Angeles on Tuesday, but Katy Perry (who was also at the event) was more popular. Perry was also a big supporter of Obama during his re-election campaign.
The source added: "Katy is on a different level than Kim. Everybody loves Katy. Kim is so controversial and it's just too risky for any candidate to have her involved."
