From Steve Newton’s blog, Delaware Libertarian:
It was wrong when Bob Barr, as a sitting member of the Libertarian National Committee, headed a PAC that donated thousands of dollars to Republican candidates who had active Libertarian opponents.
And if you unknowingly donate to Freedom Slate ’08, you will be doing the same thing.
Eight of the Republican candidates who will receive money from donations to Freedom Slate ’08 have ballot-qualified Libertarian opponents.
Here are the Libertarians you will be sending money to the GOP to oppose:
Lorenzo Gaztanaga, 2nd Congressional District, Maryland
Thibeaux Lincecum, 4th Congressional District, Maryland
Darlene Nicholas, 5th Congressional District, Maryland
Ronald Owens-Bey, 7th Congressional District, Maryland
Jim Duensing, 1st Congressional District, Nevada
Sean Patrick Moore, 2nd Congressional District, Nevada
Joseph P. Silvestri, 3rd Congressional District, Nevada
Edward Choate, 3rd Congressional District, Tennessee[These names compiled from the list of ballot-qualified candidates reported in DC Political Report.]
About many of these candidates I know nothing, other than that they are fellow Libertarians who have taken the time and trouble to file for election.
