April 2013 Filing Reveals Americans Elect is Withdrawing but Persistent

From 2006 to 2010 as Unity08, and again from 2010 to 2012 in renamed form, the Americans Elect corporation operated an effort to try and elect its own candidate for President of the United States via a privatized selection run by a corporate board. The privatized election efforts failed for two cycles in a row when popular support failed to materialize despite considerable coverage in mainstream media outlets. After its second failure, Americans Elect sent out a document that Americans Elect to its major investors (but did not post publicly for review), in which it indicated that it would dissolve and sell off its assets and brand name.

However, Americans Elect sent a document to the state of Rhode Island on April 2 2013, and that document reveals that:

1. Americans Elect’s address has reverted to the 12th floor of 1775 Pennsylvania Avenue, Chairman Peter Ackerman’s personal office suite;
2. Former Americans Elect Chief Technology Officer Joshua S. Levine is signing as President;
3. Former Americans Elect Chief Executive Officer Kahlil Byrd is signing as Secretary.

These details indicate that Americans Elect continues to exist as an organization, and that those who were in charge of it in 2012 remain in charge in 2013.
