LNC, Inc. sues to remove Phillies from NH ballot, replace him with Barr

A reliable source tells George Phillies that LNC, Inc. will be filing suit to replace him on the New Hampshire ballot with Bob Barr.

Angela Keaton says National Chairman Bill Redpath has authorized the suit.

Three of six New Hampshire State Executive Committee members voted to join the suit.

George Phillies says:

The LPNH State convention had voted that the LPNH Executive Committee did not have authority to make substitutions of candidates. To make Sue Newell their candidate, a separate state convention was needed.

U.S. Senate candidate Ken Blevens and Gubernatorial candidate’s campaign manager Sue Newell have both indicated they do not want me to withdraw.

State Committee Member John Babiarz did not vote and there is no evidence that he was effectively notified that a vote was taking place. Not three days earlier, Kelly had said that he would not support a suit.

LPNH Vice Chair Seth Cohn has indicated that he intends to resign from the State Committee. He will be running for State Chair, in order to purge the LPNH State Committee of what he views as unprincipled elements, starting with incumbent State Chair Brendan Kelly.

Months ago, IPR said that Bob Barr “may not be on the ballot” in New Hampshire, and was roundly condemned by numerous commentators. It was stated that professional petitioners, such as Eric Dondero, were on the case, and thus, Barr would almost definitely make the ballot. Well, he couldn’t make the ballot on his own, so he and the LNC have decided to sue to steal the place Phillies earned.

    LPHQ and Bob Barr have made the LP the party of theft, and everyone who supports them and their actions are men and women of ZERO integrity.

    At last report, the signature count for Barr/Root in NH has not yet been completed, so it unclear if they have enough signatures.

    This lawsuit was filed even though Barr/Root may well already be on the ballot.

    No wonder LNC electronic fundraising appears to have faded.

    Good thing the LP is dividing its most loyal supporters and wasting valuable time and money on an essentially meaningless presidential race…

    Actually, it seems to me that the only time it’s worth it running presidential candidates is when we have “rockstar converts” like Barr anyway.

    Still, pretty hypocritical moves coming from a party of choice and freedom – including the freedom to disassociate state chapters from the national trainwreck.

    Delusions of “conversion” such as this one (earth to those with their heads in the sand . . . Barr is a conservative, not a libertarian) abound.

    When the LP does in fact get a “rockstar convert”, it will be an amazing LP presidential race however. This one . . . well its just a conservative Republican pretending to be a libertarian. So, Barr . . . rockstar-maybe; libertarian-not a chance!

    The vote in the NHLP committee was 3 votes to be a co-plaintiff, and 2 not to become a co-plaintiff, and John Babiarz never voted.

    The purpose of this lawsuit is to get New Hampshire to recognize substitution. New Hampshire is one of only two states that has never agreed to presidential or vice-presidential substitution. The other is South Dakota. Without substitution, minor parties would be forced to choose their presidential candidates in the year before the election, which puts them at a serious tactical advantage. This lawsuit, it wins, will also likely stimulate the New Hampshire legislature to fix some of the other ballot access problems in that state.

    There is no evidence that John Babiarz ever fund out about the vote.

    There is overwhelming evidence that the state convention that did the nominating explicitly rejected the proposal that the State Committee could substitute candidates. To substitute Sue Newell onto the nominating papers, a new state convention was required.

    I will advise you all when I am served in the suit.

    I love it how you passed over my sarcasm while using quotes yourself. Fail. =]
