Given the psychopathic nature of Landham’s views, I feel a little like I’m congratulating them for breathing.
Obviously, a few breathing lessons are in order, as Paulie Cannoli reports for Last Free Voice:
The Libertarian Party of Kentucky will reconsider its endorsement of Senate candidate Sonny Landham Wednesday evening, just days after initially disassociating their party from his bid. This news comes after the office of Kentucky’s secretary of state announced yesterday that Landham would need 5,000 new petition signatures to secure ballot access to run as an independent.
“We’re really stuck,” said Libertarian Party chair Ken Moellman. “We don’t necessarily want to kick him off the ballot.”
Granted, ballot access rules for third parties in Kentucky are grossly unfair--so what? They are everywhere.
Here's the situation made real simple for the 12 members of the LP Executive Committee in the Bluegrass State:
You screwed up by letting a real nutball on the ticket in the first place. The man is Lyndon Larouche mixed with David Duke.
The damage that one Sonny Landham can do will undo all the advances made by serious, thoughtful LP candidates in North Carolina, Georgia, Indiana, Texas, Michigan.... The list goes on.
It's time to take one for the team.
