DENVER — During a vote in this morning’s session of the Libertarian Party convention, it was agreed that 10 percent of the delegates will be a sufficient threshold to submit a dispute to the judicial committee. Not a good idea, said one Libertarian insider; this could lead to multiple disputes over all kinds of issues.
Meanwhile, David Weigel of Reason has a good article about the LP convention, including this quote from Richard Burke of Americans for Prosperity: “The purists don’t want a political party as much as they want a church,” he said. “They need a place to worship.”
One of the sponsors of the convention is Shotgun Willie’s, a local strip joint. Each delegate’s credentials packet includes a coupon for half-price admission. Shotgun Willie’s also has a booth in the exhibition hall, next to the Mike Gravel booth.
