The following is a draft Removal Motion for the LNC’s consideration. Please feel free to suggest changes or improvements in comments. Incidentally, I didn’t personally write it.
Should the LNC remove Barr from his position as LP presidential nominee?
WHEREAS, Article 12, Section 5 of the Libertarian Party’s bylaws provide for the suspension of the party’s presidential candidate by the Libertarian National Committee; and
WHEREAS, said bylaws provision requires a 3/4 vote of this body;
BE IT KNOWN that Bob Barr, the Libertarian Party’s 2008 presidential nominee, is hereby suspended on the basis of the following causes:
– Failure to appear, with little or no notice, at a major media event to which he had been invited and to which he had committed to appear;
– Vicious public attacks by his campaign staff on the character and reputation of the event’s host (1988 Libertarian Party presidential nominee Ron Paul) and sponsor (Campaign For Liberty);
– The disrepute and discredit which the aforementioned misbehaviors have brought upon the Libertarian Party.
The committee advises Barr that he has seven (7) days to appeal this action to the party’s Judicial Committee. Absent a successful appeal, his nomination will be deemed null and void and he will be replaced as the party’s presidential nominee.
