LNC member and Liberated Space host Angela Keaton has started a new blog: Anarchist Bitch. She has decided to make all of her LNC correspondence public at the blog.
Her first post-convention blog entry alleges that Shane Cory manipulated fundraising results:
I was the second highest fund raiser last time. I realize that I was listed as third but thatâ€™s because Mr. Cory gave the points to Mr. Carling who claimed anotherâ€™s fund raising solicitation as his own. Of course, the LNC does not require much of its members, such as upholding ethical standards.
In her second post, Ms. Keaton says that the Libertarian “faction in power” expects “collegiality, civility, neutrality, ‘professionalism’ and obsequiousness” from the radicals, but isn’t always willing to offer it in kind.
Under no circumstances will I be an apologist for any officer or staff member who harangues volunteers who donâ€™t tow the current neo-libertarian line. I did enough of that for our last executive director who apparently had plans of his own.
Remember, for those of you who support the results of Denver, the burden is on you to perform. Not me. These are your candidates, your platform, your bylaws. If you canâ€™t accomplish your goals this time, no amount of carping about Hogarthâ€™s bitchiness, Ruwartâ€™s child porn collection or my doing blow off of Starchildâ€™s ass is going to bail you out this time.
