Libertarians sue Kentucky public television for First Amendment violation
A federal constitutional lawsuit, filed today against Kentucky Educational Television in U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Kentucky, stems from its new exclusionary policy regarding public debates, eliminating Libertarian participation. The plaintiffs in the case are Libertarian David Patterson's campaign for U.S. Senate, the Libertarian Party of Kentucky, and the Libertarian National Committee.
Libertarian statewide candidates Sean Haugh, Adrian Wyllie, Dr. Andrew Hunt, and Mark Fish were covered in an article in Sunday's New York Times on how non-establishment party candidates may affect the November elections.
"This year, it seems extremely likely that the Libertarian nominees for the office at the top of the ballot will poll over 2,000,000 votes", said Richard Winger, editor and publisher of Ballot Access News.
"This is partly because the Libertarians have more candidates for the top-of-the-ticket office this year than ever before, but mostly because so many of the party’s nominees are receiving substantial support."
For Immediate Release
President Obama starts another war in violation of Constitution
President Barack Obama has taken the United States to war, now in Syria and Iraq, in violation of the U.S. Constitution — just as he did in Libya in 2011.
"Whatever differences they may claim, Democratic and Republican politicians are aligned when it comes to foreign meddling," said Nicholas Sarwark, chair of the Libertarian National Committee. "President Barack Obama and former President George W. Bush both resort to war in the end."
Libertarian poll numbers across the country continue to raise the hackles of the old parties — and they're running scared.
Now they're fighting dirty.
As your chair, I'm committed that when the Libertarian Party puts a candidate on the ballot, we'll follow through to keep them on the ballot. And if our opponents cheat, we're going to fight back — and fight back hard.
In New York, we're mounting a legal defense to keep Libertarian Gigi Bowman on the ballot.
The Libertarian Party is America's third largest political party, founded in 1971. Our vision is for a world in which all individuals can freely exercise the natural right of sole dominion over their own lives, liberty and property by building a political party that elects Libertarians to public office, and moving public policy in a libertarian direction.
