It’s going to court. Below is a post from Bill LussenheideÂ explaining Keyes’ financial situation.
Don’t expect much from our friend Alan Keyes, now or in the future. His campaign is totally broke, and had only $2,461 on hand as of June 30th. He OWES more than $15,900, so actually, his campaign has a NEGATIVE NET WORTH! There is still debt leftover from his 2004 campaign.
His grassroots organization was unable to get him on the ballot of any state and was dismal in its efforts to petition etc. The only state that he got on was Colorado, which lets anyone run for a very small fee, $750, without any nomination signatures.
With fewer than 90 days until election, they do not even have a rudimentary mediocre campaign website that is much beyond â€œunder constructionâ€. Other than snaring 3 exiting disgruntled California officers in the AIP, Keyes has shown himself and his movement to be a complete and utter, impotent and bankrupt failure. The overwhelming majority of the AIPâ€™s officers and membership support Chuck Baldwin.
Do not imagine that Keyes will develop a groundswell of a new party that has any potential. Keyes and his so called party movement are at the door of oblivion even as you read this. No matter what the current situation holds, the future for our party in California in any meaningful sense is with the growing and dynamic Constitution Party.
Below are the official campaign financial records of Alan Keyes as of June 30th, 2008 as found on the Federal Election Commission Website. Read for yourself the sad shape of affairs for Mr. Keyes.
