It has come to my attention that I need to weed out claims of endorsement or otherwise make clear my opinion on a few matters. Due to the efforts of a good friend, it has come to my attention that I "endorsed Rand Paul" and someone, somewhere is still making this claim.
I did endorse Rand at one point. My resignation from the LPKY last year to support him is a matter of public record. Rand was an acquaintance and a bright hope for freedom activists around Kentucky. To some extent, he is still viewed this way by many activists. I don't judge him for selecting expediency over principle, but he arrived at a place where I could no longer support his candidacy. I elected to return to the LPKY shortly before Jan. 1st, 2010, where I now serve as Vice-Chair.
In an effort to make my position perfectly clear: I am publicly withdrawing my support for Dr. Paul. I had refrained from doing it in this dramatic fashion, but I want my position to be clear. Neither I nor the Libertarian Party (Kentucky and National) endorse or adhere to the candidacy of Dr. Rand Paul in any way. We have issued a statement to that effect, and I request that anyone seeking clarification do so, either from myself or from other members of the Executive Committee. While some Executive Committee members have made personal decisions to support him while sitting on the committee, neither I nor the LPKY support his campaign.
