While there has been some discussion about the near-complete absence of vice presidential nominee Wayne Allyn Root from Libertarian presidential candidate Bob Barr’s campaign website, less noticed is the lack of activity on Root’s own website. While Root’s masthead has changed to say he is now a candidate for the vice presidency, much of the site — including items on the front page — still refer to his presidential candidacy. There is also just one blog item posted since Root won the vice presidential nomination.
For an alternative party candidate, Root was ubiquitous in terms of mainstream media coverage as he sought the presidential nomination. Since winning a spot on the national ticket, Root seems to have done few interviews, and there are no references on his site to current campaign activities. What’s Wayne up to?
