Allegedly, there is a movement afoot to replace Wayne Allyn Root as Bob Barr’s running mate.
LNC rep. Stewart Flood has reportedly made a motion to kick W.A.R. off the ticket, citing some comments Root made in an interview with Reason magazine, which some consider racially insensitive.
Some are speculating that Barr wants Root out, which they say is the true reason the Barr campaign allegedly told Bill Redpath to keep Angela Keaton — a likely vote for Root’s removal — on the LNC. Theorists also suggest that Barr’s desire to have Root off the ticket played a part in his recent overture to Ron Paul.
