What does this “news item” at Americans Elect have to do with running its own online election to select a presidential candidate?
I have no earthly idea, especially because Americans Elect says it has no issues, ideology or agenda that it’s pushing.
But for whatever reason, Americans Elect really wants you to know that Americans don’t point the finger at Wall Street for economic troubles.
P.S. Americans Elect’s “leaders” include:
Chairman Peter Ackerman, Founder and Managing Partner, Rockport Capital
