According to a press release from January, businessman Daniel Imperato is running for president in 2020 as an Independent. In the statement, Imperato attacks the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), which prosecuted him in 2012 for allegedly conning investors out of millions of dollars. A page on AliveAdviser.com, which sells a guide to the US Constitution from the Heritage Foundation as a campaign donation, is listed as the official campaign website.
“Imperato will speak out in 2020 about why the political system is so corrupted,” the release reads, “and how our leadership is abusing its power, obstructing justice, and denying our freedoms every day.”

Imperato unsuccessfully sought the Libertarian, Green, Reform, and Constitution Party presidential nominations in 2008. In 2010, he ran for governor of Florida as an Independent and received 0.26 percent in the general election. During the campaigns he made outlandish claims about his background and business acumen.
In 2012, the SEC alleged Imperato created a shell corporation, Imperiali, which he portrayed as a profitable business to con investors out of approximately $2.5 million. Presumably, Imperato and the SEC reached some sort of settlement since the case closed in 2013. However, Imperato continues to disparage and sue the SEC.
“The Politicians and brethren of the court must be held accountable including
the branches of government representatives, the administrative laws agencies,” the release explains. “Imperato will speak out about his personal experience with denial of constitutional rights and judicial Tyranny.”
The goal of his campaign is “to protect and defend the constitution as the law of the land-based on biblical application decerned in the bill of rights, Magana Carta, and the US CONSTITUTION.”
He has not filed with the Federal Election Commission.
