Chicago Sun-Times Article on Tactics Being Used in Challenge to Libertarian Party Statewide Petition

This Chicago Sun-Times story says the challengers to the Libertarian Party of Illinois statewide petition, having failed to invalidate enough individual signatures, are trying to invalidate all the work of certain petitioners. The story features Brian Lambrecht, chair of the DuPage County Libertarian Party. The challengers are trying to argue that all the 1,400 signatures he collected should be invalidated because, they say, he is not registered at the correct address, a contention which he strongly disputes.

  1. The challengers always win. The Libertarians, Greens, Independents and others have to spend much of their little money and a heck of a lot of energy defending against the challenges. This makes them less able to campaign effectively.

  2. The challengers don’t always win. In 2010, all of the Illinois Libertarian statewide candidates were on the ballot. I voted for three of them.

  3. Gene might be thinking of Pennsylvania. If so, he is pretty close to right!
