Says Campaign for Liberty Events Coordinator, Don Rasmussen:
“I just sat in stunned silence as Bob Barr blatantly lied to the national press corp (or the half dozen members that bothered to show up). He stated that he had not committed to attend this press conference. This is patently false. He was fully committed to attend until 30 minutes before when Russ Varney called Jesse Benton and said that Barr was out. This man has not one ounce of integrity in his body.
“Adam Kokesh stood up during the press conference, denounced Barr and withdrew his support. Several others in the room quickly followed. Great job Adam!
“I asked Barr Communications Director Shane Corey after the event why they pulled this stunt and was told to go f*** myself.”
Cory, of course, resigned in disgrace from the LP, allegedly against the protests of LP Chairman Bill Redpath. Cory was thanked by Bob Barr during his acceptance speech, despite having worked for Bob Barr at that point would have meant he did so in secret, either as LP Executive Director or as editor and chief censor of Third Party Watch.
