Local Libertarian Candidates, party members and media lit up the internet and cell phone towers tonight after the YLNI Candidate Forum in efforts to reach Party Chair Jennifer Jeffrey. The intense search went on late into the night for an explanation into current City Councilman Dr. John Crawford's statement to the large crowd that he was "a social Libertarian".
Party members were confused as to why Jeffrey had not told them she had nominated him for the seat and wondered who else may show up next to beg for a slot on their ticket.
Jeffrey was found talking with other Council members late this evening, urging them to join the movement. Jeffrey declined to comment on the workings of the deal. Instead she issued this message: "Welcome to the dark side, Mr. Crawford. We have some serious work to do on your platform."
Stay tuned for continuing developments.
