Former LPF State Committeeman, and potential gubernatorial candidate, Alexander George issued the following statement earlier this evening:
"As a free citizen, I've expressed my opinions about the Florida Governor's Race. I've been most vocal about my party's primary. I feel that the top four officers of the party favor one, and only one candidate. I stand by that conviction.
Earlier today, I engaged in what I feel was an intelligent online debate with other party members on facebook's "Libertarian Solutions for Florida". We expressed our opinions and talked about our differences. All in all, I feel that it was a positive exchange. Sadly, Chairperson Cummings deleted the post this evening. I'm not surprised. Such actions are standard operating procedure for our Chairperson. She favors censorship.
I'm truly dismayed by her actions. However, this is not the purpose of this post. I would like to admit that I made a mistake when I accused State Secretary Lynn House of using the LPF State website to promote an Adrian Wyllie event. My previous article states that Mrs. House used the site for a Wyllie petition drive.
I was wrong, and I admit when I'm wrong. The event in question was merely an open and free LPF event not exclusively intended to promote just the Wyllie campaign... It was meant to promote the Libertarian Party of Florida as a whole. I sincerely thank the Chairperson of the LPF Communications Committee, Macy John, for pointing out my error. I appreciate Ms. John's professional courtesy and kindness. She is truly a pillar of the Libertarian Party of Florida".
Mr. George went on to emphasize that this does not change his opinion of the LPF State Secretary and the other three leading officers. He still feels that there is a major conflict of interest when it comes to party's attitude towards candidates. "They run a very authoritarian ship" said George. "My goal is to unite the party. Only then can we move forward and appeal to the electorate".
George urged the party leaders to "consider the future and the consequences"
