Section 4.12. Neutrality of Directors. Board members shall not communicate or act in favor of or in opposition to any candidate for President or Vice President at any time before the adjournment of the online nominating convention of Americans Elect.
That’s the very specific requirement set out in the bylaws of Americans Elect, the 501c4 corporation that doesn’t disclose the sources of its multimillion dollar funding and aims to run its own private presidential nomination in 2012.
Christine Todd Whitman, communicating her favorite Republican candidate for President in October of 2011:
James Pindell, WMURPoliticalScoop.com: Have you made any decision as to who you think should be the next president?
Former New Jersey Governor Christine Todd Whitman: Well, I haven’t endorsed a candidate, but I have to say that looking at the field we certainly have a wide variety and we have a number of people who have the kind of experience that would allow them to be good presidents. But I would support Jon Huntsman.
