is a nonprofit that's working to reform the presidential debate
process for the american election. they have some pretty big names on their board from across the political spectrum, including john b. anderson
, angela "bay" buchanan
, and randall robinson
From the website:
Currently, the presidential debates are secretly controlled by the major parties, through the private bipartisan corporation called the Commission on Presidential Debates, resulting in the stultification of format, the exclusion of popular candidates, and the avoidance of pressing national issues.
The major party candidates never pay a political price for their antidemocratic practices; posing as an independent sponsor, the Commission on Presidential Debates shields the major party candidates from public criticism and public accountability.
