According to Last Free Voice:
The Libertarian Party (Libertarian National Committee, Incorporated) is apparently preparing to file suit against the New Hampshire Secretary of State. The lawsuit will demand that the state place Bob Barr on the ballot, and remove George Phillies from the ballot.
This suit is separate and distinct from the ACLU lawsuit in Massachusetts to substitute Bob Barr in place of George Phillies on the Massachusetts ballot.
According to the article, Dr. Phillies will not support the effort to remove him from the New Hampshire ballot, citing an ethical obligation to petition signers that placed him there. The Libertarian vs. Libertarian conflict does not appear to be limited to it’s presidential contenders however, as it seems the suit has been organized without the full knowledge of all Libertarian National Committee members:
Strangely, many who should have been informed of this action seem to have not been informed at all. The list of those who were not informed appears to include LNC members Angela Keaton, Lee Wrights, Mary Ruwart, Rachel Hawkridge, and even LNC Vice-Chair Michael Jingozian.
Even more strangely, it appears that the LNCâ€™s retained attorney, Bill Hall, was not apprised that the LNC is taking this action through another attorney.
Commenting on the matter, LNC member Angela Keaton remarked: “It’s time for Redpath, Sullentrup and Starr to step down. They are toxic not only to the party but to the larger movement.”
Other questions posed by LFV’s ElfNinosMom include why litigation so unlikely to succeed is being brought up in the first place, and how the party intends to fund the suit considering its anemic fund-raising as of late.
