The Free Libertarian Party was the name of the U.S. Libertarian Party’s affiliate in New York for the first few years of its existence. Now Kristin Davis, a gubernatorial hopeful in New York, intends to revive the name of the state party after losing, or not contesting, the nomination for the Libertarian Party of New York. Libertarian Republican has the story here.
Davis’ campaign manager, the infamous political consultant Roger Stone, let loose a flurry of insults towards Warren Redlich, the winner of the NYLP nomination for Governor.
“Redlich is the biggest asshole Ive met in 35 years and 8 Presidential campaign. A leaping, bounding screaming asshole. A self important turd. A short bald ugly little man. No wonder he can’t get elected to anything. Who would vote for this swine?”
It remains to be seen whether Davis can make good on her promise to petition herself onto the ballot. There will likely be litigation over the issue of two parties using the name “Libertarian”. There are also rumors that Davis may be able to convince other famous New Yorkers to join her ticket.
