Reason‘s Dave Weigel published a quick reference guide to “the people you’ll never hear about again” in the LP. Christine Smith, Alden Link, Daniel Imperato, Jim Burns (“the sane fringe candidate”), and Robert Milnes are profiled.
Of Milnes, Weigel says:
[He is a] sad figure who spent months 1) saying he’d accept the mantle of a cross-party progressive alliance and 2) begging for money to get to Denver; Milnes was here in spirit. Plenty of people, including the comic Doug Stanhope, received his appeals for travel money. It’s for the best that Milnes didn’t show up (take a second and read his platform plank on back-to-Africa emigration), and I hope that for everyone who pokes fun at him, there’s someone else trying to get him help.
Milnes, as IPR has reported, has continued his candidacy as an independent.
