Level the Playing Field, the Organization that is Working for Better Presidential Debates, is the Successor of Americans Elect

From Richard Winger at Ballot Access News:

As already noted, Level the Playing Field is the organization that has asked the Federal Election Commission to revise its rules for presidential general election debates. According to the law firm that is representing Level the Playing Field, LPF “is the successor to Americans Elect.” Also see here.

The law firm, Shapiro, Arato and Isserles, is a New York city law firm that was founded in part by two former U.S. Supreme Court Clerks. Level the Playing Field’s petition has already received the support of several prestigious organizations, including the Campaign Legal Center.

Here is the request filed by Level the Playing Field, back on September 11, 2014.
