    On a note about Georgia Libertarians, John Monds, who claimed 34%ish of the vote in his election in 2008 is now running for Governor on the same ballot line.

    Holy Crap! I made IPR! (for the record, that’s me quoted).

    What isn’t in the article is that we did approve bylaws and just need approval from the Executive Committe of LP-GA, which we figure shouldn’t be a problem.

    John Monds was actually at the meeting as well, though the press had left before he got there unfortunately.

    Oh, and for the record, we didn’t write ANY of that article. We can actually write the English language, more or less, in a way that is readable and makes at least some sense.

    However, the piece that was on the TV was better done, though very brief. The other local affiliate, WALB (NBC affiliate) was allegedly invited as well, but didn’t show, as were both local papers.

    Still, we got SOME press 😉

    Tom, congratulations! Your affiliate application was unanimously approved by the LPGa ex-comm this evening. I’m sure Jeff already told you, but just in case he didn’t. I don’t think I’m breaking any confidentialities here; if so, f**k it.

    Thanks for the heads up, but yeah, Jeff had already told me. I was chatting with him in IM while he was on the conference call 🙂

    We’re thrilled to be official!
