A very strange article on independent presidential candidate Daniel Imperato appears in the Sunday Monitor of Kampala, Uganda, of all places. Writer Andrew Agaba says he met “the unknown candidate running for President of the United States of America” about two weeks ago at Union Station in Washington, D.C., when he asked to borrow Imperato’s cell phone. Agaba says Imperato “quickly told me not to tell anyone what I had found him doing within the confines of a public building, because ‘I am a candidate for president of the United States.’ Never mind what he was doing, as I do not wish to breach the trust.”
Agaba says that “within a few minutes, he had explained to me about his presidential pursuits, his African connections (presidents), his business interests and his roots. … We have since exchanged quite a few emails, and not only is he for real, signs are he is very wealthy too. … But to say that he has run an unsuccessful campaign would be an understatement. Approximately three years after he launched his campaign — way ahead of the rest — he has not managed to break through into main stream media, or gather any amount of financial support through fundraising.” Agaba says Imperato “belongs to the very minority Libertarian Party,” but that he is not the party’s presidential candidate.
