The Slippery Communist Running for President of the United States

Earlier this autumn, Our Lord And Savior Cthulhu registered as a candidate for the Communist Party presidential nomination in 2016. […]

Is She-Hulk joining with Lesale Venomancer Deathbringer to run for the Green Party nomination for President? […]

State Of The Green Party Presidential Race, Part 2

Yesterday, I began a review of the state of the race for the Green Party’s presidential nomination. Jill Stein continues her slow but smooth pace as the frontrunner, while the other contenders, including a venomous virtual viper and a prophetess, announce and then do no actual campaigning.

Today, that review begins. Is anyone but Jill […]

The State Of The Green Party Presidential Race

You would think that the people at the FEC might have suspected that this presidential candidacy isn’t genuine when Mr. Deathbringer listed his address as 200 Poison Nova Drive, Jidi Isle, AS 73556 and the address of his campaign committee as 360 Dire Ancient Way, The Dire Side Of The Map, FL 11111.

IRS Filing Reveals: Level the Playing Field Entirely Funded by Tycoon Peter Ackerman

As the successor to Americans Elect, a political corporation called Level the Playing Field has been making legal and public relations moves to change access to presidential debates and change the rules for voting. These are preludes for plans to run a candidate for President of the United States in 2016 that it has simultaneously […]

Level the Playing Field to Public: We’re Not Running Candidates for President. LPF to FEC: Yes, We Certainly Are.

One of the reasons the Americans Elect corporation failed to attract significant public support in its bid to run a privatized candidate for U.S. President in 2012 was that it declared something in public, then actually did the exact opposite in practice — not just once but over and over and over and over and […]

What Brought the Green Party and the Libertarian Party Together? This Wall Street Tycoon’s Lawsuit…

Peter Ackerman has a flair for timing.

The former Michael Milken acolyte and Wall Street tycoon, who maintains a guarded set of offices one block away from the White House, has managed to make a political splash just as members of Congress head for the exit, just as cable news channels start covering shark attacks […]

Bernie Sanders Isn’t Socialist Enough For The Socialist Worker

Bernie Sanders has become known for the being the presidential candidate who isn’t afraid to call himself a “socialist”. To the people who put the social in socialist, however, Sanders isn’t all that. The Socialist Worker writes,

“By steering liberal and left supporters into a Democratic Party whose policies and politics he claims to […]

Will Americans Elect Run a Presidential Candidate in 2016? What Americans Elect Does (and doesn’t) Say

Q. Are you supporting an independent candidate for President in 2016? A. No. Please do not assume that any of the signatories to the Change the Rule letter are committed to voting for an independent candidate in 2016. Individually, we may each decide that the Democratic or Republican candidate is superior. What each of us […]

Through “Level the Playing Field,” Americans Elect Wades into Ranked Choice Voting

During its nine-year history, the privatized-presidential-election corporation called Americans Elect has taken on many names: Americans Elect, Change the Rule, Level the Playing Field, Unity08, Unity12 Task Force. In a post yesterday about the group’s resurrection for 2016, I noted how its recent activity featured a “charitable donation” to a mysterious 501c4 corporation called “The […]

Behind Americans Elect’s “Level the Playing Field” Donation to “Charity”

(Tip of the pen to Richard Winger for getting me started down this path.)

Earlier this year Americans Elect leaders popped up with a new organization, a new name (“Level the Playing Field”), and two mysterious payments from that group. The first mysterious payment was made out to “Imaginary Friend.” It turns out “Imaginary Friend” […]
