"According to our rules, since fewer than seven candidates have received enough support to qualify for the AE nomination, the first caucus scheduled for May 8th will now take place on May 15th."

Fewer than 7, they say?  Not a single candidate is even close to the bare minimum requirement of 1000 support clicks in 10 different states.  Ron Paul is up to 8647 (best state: California, 897), while Buddy Roemer leads the declared candidates with 4304 (best state: California, 435).

Imagine if you threw a caucus and nobody came...

So far America Elect is on 21 state ballots and completed getting signatures for another 11, to bad they have no candidate.

I nominated Bill Gates.....

Well, today is Caucus Day, and here is the news from AE...

Statement by Americans Elect CEO Kahlil Byrd

Over the past two years, Americans Elect has focused on achieving three clear goals:

   
  • Gaining nationwide ballot access for a third presidential ticket to compete in the 2012 race;
  • Holding the first ever nonpartisan secure national online primary at AmericansElect.org; and
  • Fielding a credible, balanced, unaffiliated ticket for the 2012 presidential race.

Through the efforts of thousands of staffers, volunteers, and leadership, Americans Elect has achieved every stated operational goal. Despite these efforts, as of today, no candidate has reached the national support threshold required to enter the “Americans Elect Online Convention” this June. (Read a detailed summary of the AE process here and the full rules here.)

Because of this, under the rules that AE delegates ratified, the primary process would end today. There is, however, an almost universal desire among delegates, leadership and millions of Americans who have supported AE to see a credible candidate emerge from this process.

Every step of the way, AE has conferred with its community before making major decisions. We will do the same this week before determining next steps for the immediate future. AE will announce the results of these conversations on Thursday, May 17.

As always, we thank everyone who has participated in this effort and will honor the work, efforts and trust so many people have placed in Americans Elect.

By the way, if you are interested in learning how much of a joke AE has been from the very beginning, check out this blog.  Really, this guy is pretty good, and his cynicism is just delightful.  Check it out: http://aetransparency.blogspot.com/

The winner of the first round (which will likely be Roemer,) automatically advances to the Online Convention. After that, everyone moves onto the second round and the top 5 finishers advance to the Online Convention, to be held on June 12th.

This is great! AE is the biggest joke since Ralph Nader.

As promised, AE released another statement today.  I won't copy it in this post, suffice to say that Americans Elect is done, finished, kaput.  There will be no online convention.

The statement is here.

Which begs the question: what happens to all the ballot access this organization controls?

Glad to see the first effort of a corporation to literally run a candidate for President has failed.
