Virginia Mercury Explores State Libertarian Party Dissolution

Graham Moomaw with the Virginia Mercury recently wrote on the events surrounding the Libertarian Party of Virginia’s dissolution.

Writing for an article in the Virginia Mercury, Moomaw speaks with former chair Holly Ward and explores at length the local Libertarian response to the dissolution vote. Moomaw writes:

“It’s clear that we can’t function,” Ward said in an interview as she explained why the party is dissolving as a corporation and giving back the nearly $30,000 it had in the bank.

Ward provided documents showing the party had dissolved its corporate entity registered in Virginia, but other Libertarians have been questioning the legitimacy of the move and insisting the party will live on.

Independent Political Report has also followed the dissolution of the Libertarian Party of Virginia since the news first broke. You can read more of our coverage here and here.
