From: Libertarian Party of New Mexico [email@example.com]
To: [Libertarian Party State Chair’s List], Robert Kraus, Carla Howell, Geoffrey Neale, Lee Wrights, Tim Hagan, Ruth Bennett, Michael Cloud, Bill Redpath, Wayne Root, Starchild, Arvin Vohra, Norm Olsen, Tony Ryan, Vicki Kirkland, Richard Schrade, Jillian A Mack, Sam Goldstein, Dan Wiener, Scott Lieberman, Brett Pojunis, Audrey Capozzi, Rich Tomasso, David Blau, James W. Lark III, Scott Spencer, Dianna Visek, Michael Knebel, John Jay Myers, Paulie Frankel
It seems that Wayne Allyn Root spent a good bit of June, July and August stumping for Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan (with a little bit for Scott Brown, etc.) on Fox News, townhall.com, and personalliberty.com, etc., and then posting about it to his Facebook and Twitter pages.
This is inexcusable.
I’ve never been one to join the anti-Root campaigns before, but this pushes me over the top.
I know that he said he was just giving Team Romney some “free advice.”
How would George Bush have reacted if GEN McChrystal or GEN Petraeus had put out a press release with some “free advice” for al-Qaeda or the Taliban?
SHOW ME the “branding” guy from Pepsi who gets ahead by talking up Coke in the media.
The proverbial “Duh” comes to mind here.
Hey, Wayne, I don’t have any personal animosity towards you. If you were JUST an oddsmaker posting predictions, I could let some of this slide. If you were JUST a pundit expressing your views, I could let some of this slide. And there’s too much, over too long of a time span, to blow this off as a “lapse in judgment” or “poor choice of words.”
But the fact remains that you’re ALSO the current chair of the LNCC, sitting on the LNC, and sitting on the Nevada LP’s state-level Executive Committee, while stumping for GOP candidates (Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan) in direct opposition to the LP’s candidates for the same offices (Gary Johnson and Jim Gray).
I’ve got a few screenshots and saved web pages. Here’s some URLs for your examination (screenshots are attached at the bottom) – I’m sure there’s more to be found, so check these URLs, too:
