The State Of The Green Party Presidential Race, Part 3
Over the last couple of days, I have been reviewing what information is available about the Green Party’s presidential candidates. These have included some filers who failed to follow up, a couple of jokesters registering under concocted identities, and two serious, though struggling, candidates: Jill Stein and Bill Kreml.
Today, I finish this review.
I’ll start with Samuel Vaynblat, from New York City. Vaynblat registered with a committee name that is rather unusual for the Green Party: The Committee To Restore America To Power. The FEC requested a revised filing because the committee did not contain Vaynblat’s name, as the law requires. The deadline for Vaynblat to respond passed 15 days ago, so Vaynblat can no longer be considered a contender for the Green Party presidential nomination.
Back in April, Dan White of Marietta, Georgia registered as a candidate for the Green Party nomination. Nothing has been heard from Dan White since. There is a Dan White from Marietta who has fought against the construction of a new stadium for the Atlanta Braves, but it’s not clear whether this is the same Dan White who thought he might run for President this spring.
A more interesting perspective comes from another Green candidate who is actually green, or claims to be. Jennifer Walters, a resident of New York City, filed a petition late last month to run for President. So, where does the green come in? The campaign committee that Walters registered was called She-Hulk for President. Jennifer Walters, it turns out, is the alter-ego to She-Hulk. The FEC has responded to “Jennifer Walters” and requested a new application with a different campaign committee. The Avengers have until December 14 to respond. The filing for the She-Hulk for President campaign came from the same building that houses Marvel Entertainment.
The CEO of Marvel Entertainment, we know, is a big supporter of Marco Rubio.
