What was turning out to be an incredibly successful National Libertarian Party Convention, turned into a freak show of sorts.
While delegates were awaiting the returns of the second round of Vice Presidential Nomination balloting, they decided to hold the nominating speeches for National Party Chairman. James Weeks was one such candidate for the top spot in the organization.
Mr. Weeks took to the podium when his name was called and he gave the nod for the music to start. That's when the morbidly obese young man began hopping around the stage and as his fat body giggled, he began to unclothe himself. C-Span was carrying the event live and without any 'delay' mechanism to prevent uncensored graphic nudity from going live throughout the world.
Further research reveals that Mr Weeks has been a candidate for congress and is currently a candidate for county sheriff, in his home state of Michigan.
If you feel like seeing more or just wanna get your kicks, the story is trending here.
They were set to move on a suspension of the party rules, so that they could at least remove him from the convention, and perhaps even ban him from the party. That's when Chairman Nicolas Sarwark came to a microphone and told the delegates just how proud he has been of the convention and the comportment of the delegates, until this incident. He then asked that the body drop the motion and proceed with the business at hand (choosing a national chairman.
They then chose Sarwark for another term at the helm.
Mr. weeks' campaign page says;
" James Weeks was born in Michigan, and has lived in Livingston County virtually all of his life. From a young age James always loved freedom. He has dedicated his life to achieving a free society, free from an omnipotent state that seems to wish to squeeze every last drop of freedom out of our lives.
James advocates for individual liberty over the wishes of the collective. A free society based on individual rights and voluntary consent. For all individuals have the right to exercise sole dominion over their own lives; They have the right to live in whatever manner they choose, so long as they do not forcibly interfere with the equal right of others to live in whatever manner they choose."
