He will be giving us updates from the floor all weekend long. Knapp reports that multiple sources have told him that Libertarian National Committee Secretary Bob Sullentrup is leaving the Libertarian Party. The National Convention of 2010 will serve as his “last hurrah”. Rumors abound as to why and to what purpose, but there will now be an election for Secretary of the LNC where previously it was thought there would not be. Sullentrup was first elected to the LNC in 2002. Kanpp also sent along some pictures for those who can’t attend.

Update: Several delegates have since emailed or called me personally to tell me they’re hearing Sullentrup deny this.

    Good. Hopefully Sillentrop will go independent. Then in 2012 he can run for Congress as an independent and will probably win by a large margin.

  2. Brian Holtz

    This seems unlikely. The rumor I heard is that Sullentrup will be running for Judicial Committee. In the lengthy farewell speech he just gave on the convention floor, there was no hint of him leaving the LP.

    As with every rumor, the question to ask is: who would benefit from spreading this rumor? The natural answer would be: the officer candidates whose opponents might be endorsed by, or associated with, Sullentrup.

    Brian,

    I’m just reporting. I’ve heard this both from Tom and from another delegate at the convention (one who is friendly with Sullentrup and wants him to remain in the LP)

    Tom was reporting a rumor, not a fact. Confirmed in personal conversation with Tom last night. Headline should say it is a rumor.

    Heard Sullentrup asked about this and his response was something like “you can’t believe what you read on IPR.” Not necessarily his exact words but while he did not specifically deny it, he certainly gave that impression.

    Tom, any post-mortem on how your sources managed to get you to plant this story?

  6. Robert Capozzi

    Not a good practice to report mere rumors, esp. when the person rumored was AT the convention.

    Perhaps Brother Knapp was confused, and was referring to himself! 😉

  7. Thomas L. Knapp

    Brian,

    Neither of my sources were people I’d characterize as opponents or enemies of Sullentrup. Actually, one of them very much the opposite. Both of them are people I also generally consider to be honest.

    My guess is that the ultimate source of the rumor was: Bob Sullentrup.
