The American Independent Party has had ballot status in the state of California since 1968 and is still active there. In the early 1980’s, Bill Shearer led the American Independent Party into the Populist Party. Since 1992, the A.I.P. has been the California affiliate of the national Constitution Party, formerly the U.S. Taxpayers Party. Many political analysts have theorized that the Party, which has received very few votes in recent California elections, maintains its state ballot status because people join the Party mistakenly believing that they are registering as an "independent."[1] William Kennedy Shearer (January 21, 1931 - March 3, 2007) of California was the chairman of the Constitution Party from 1996 to 1999, and founded the American Independent Party in 1967 to support George C.
