The following letter was sent to the Libertarian Party Discussion Group by PA activist Steve Scheetz. He reports: My message was deleted and I was blocked within 30 seconds.
Dear Chair McArdle:
I am both disturbed and disgusted to receive this mailing asking for money for Ballot Access when you removed Jennifer Moore, the most effective player on that committee. In addition, the LNC oversaw others on that committee leave, and then replaced those people with what is currently there. I am also isturbed looking at the LNC e-mail list where the discussion is currently surrounding the sale of LPHQ.
Why? Is it because there is not enough money to continue supporting Sore Loser Republican Re-treads?
Having donated to National over the years, I also worked 5 out of the past 10 years in state party leadership, with three of those growing the LPPA from an annual revenue of $6K to more than $120K, and being the affiliate responsible for more elected Libertarians than the rest of the nation COMBINED!
My team was responsible for building the most successful affiliate in the nation. Had we been able to continue we would have continued on that upward trajectory.
NOW? 6 months after the “take-over” over 40% of the membership is gone, and the new “team” is not bringing in any money. Neither is National, from what I see from the financial reports. It appears that the new regime is doing just as well as the new LPPA team since the “Reno Reset.” LNC? You made the best players and biggest donors feel unwelcome, unwanted, or worse, you actively threw us out.
NOW, you want us to contribute to your failing committee? HOW DARE YOU?
The answer is NO. Not one dime will be heading to National, from me.
Instead, I will continue donating to people and causes like the Legal Defense for LPTX, or Chase Oliver’s campaign, and the Keystone Party.
