At the end of nomination for chair candidates, Bill Redpath asked if there were any other nomination for chairman of the Libertarian Party. Darryl Perry of Alabama walked to the mic and nominated himself as a candidate. Current chairman Bill Redpath accepted his nomination, with a sigh, and welcomed him to make a nomination speech. Perry then made a speech in which he claimed he was “not a legitimate chair candidate”–which I assume means he did not want people to actually vote for him. However, he spoke against a bylaw which disallows candidates to be members of multiple parties. He then advised everyone in the room to join the Boston Tea Party and to vote for Ernie Hancock for Chair.
The founder of the Boston Tea Party, Thomas Knapp, said on twitter that it was a “real dick move” and “As BTP founder, I repudiate that action.”
