Another Question for George Phillies

Brian Holtz // Jan 31, 2010 at 3:55 pm

Don’t all start responding at once. Take turns.

I’ll start: Dr. Phillies’s article lists several people who he says “represent a positive commitment for change in our Party, and merit your support”. One of them says in this very thread that a Party officer “gave illegal substances (alcohol and marijuana) to minors at party-related functions”, and she later clarified that she “witnessed this on countless occasions”. Should such a person be entrusted with Party office in the absence of any evidence that she didn’t immediately take effective action to limit the Party’s liability from these (alleged) incidents?

Dr. Phillies is usually so voluble about alleged impropriety among (would-be) LP officers and candidates, so I’ll be curious how/whether he addresses this question.

My subtext here of course is: responsible Party leaders cannot go around slinging mud at other Party leaders/members unless their evidence is as airtight as their charges are serious. In George’s defense, he almost always is willing and able to back up his charges against fellow Libertarians with detailed evidence. I wish some of the people he endorses above would learn from his example.
