When we say the Libertarians know how to party, we mean it. But sometimes discretion goes out the window.
dThe Libertarian Party was having a picture-perfect national convention, last May. They met in Orlando and enjoyed perhaps the most media publicity they's ever enjoyed. Their presidential candidate debates were publicity successes, in the weeks leading up to the Memorial weekend convention.
They had just named their nominee and running mate. Two big name former Republican governors. the only matter left to resolve was the election of the party chairman.
Nicolas Sarwark was running for another term. He's hugely popular, competent, and had carried the party to unprecedented stature. Nicolas and the leadership left the nominations open to any delegate in the room.
James Weeks, a delegate from Livingston County, in south central Michigan, decided to make a run for the post. James is already a declared candidate in his county's upcoming election for sheriff.
C-Span was covering the convention worldwide, gavel to gavel.
