Florida Libertarian Party of Pinellas calls for Augustus Invictus to exit party over principles, change registration

The Libertarian Party of Pinellas County (LPPC) calls Augustus Invictus, US Candidate for Senate, to immediately disassociate from the Libertarian Party of Florida (LPF). Seeing as the Executive Committee of the LPF failed to remove him from the membership rolls despite a clear violation of the Non-Aggression Principle, and our affiliate was deliberately discluded from participating in the vote, we have no alternative but to ask Mr. Invictus to leave the party and change his voter registration out of the LPF.

According to Char-Lez Braden, chair of the LPF “Legally, the LPF has no control over a candidate’s political affiliation. Florida election laws allow anyone, with any ideology, to run as a candidate in the party they declared when registering to vote. The LPF has not endorsed Augustus Invictus and has not provided him with any support. Under the law, we cannot prevent him from running as a Libertarian and he is not required to enter our certification process.”

Having a candidate who clearly calls for war, insurrection, and eugenics of the weak, disabled, and those of low intelligence is clearly not the ideology of the hard working Libertarians who have dedicated their time, efforts, and reputations toward the good principles of the party.

Libertarian Party“It is truly unfortunate that the progress in the party has been severely tarnished by a lunatic posing as a Libertarian,” states Stephanie Davenport, At Large Representative of the LPPC. “The hardworking, principled members of the Pinellas affiliate are evaluating our association with the state party,” she says. “We need to act in the best interest of our members and restore the reputation of proud Libertarians residing in Pinellas county. It is egregious that we were not permitted to do so at the state level. If Mr. Invictus truly has the best interest of the Libertarian Party at heart, he will stop the hemorrhaging he has caused and leave the party.”

The chairman of the Libertarian Party of Pinellas County issued a statement last month disavowing its association with hate organizations. The full context of that memo appears below.

As chair of the Executive Committee (EC) of the Libertarian Party of Pinellas County (LPPC), I hereby publicly rebuke all forms of aggression based ideologies. At the core of our very essence, Libertarians oppose the initiation of force to achieve political or social goals. The Libertarian Party of Pinellas County has zero tolerance for association with hate based groups or persons. Any expression of support for organizations or individuals advocating unprovoked violent actio…ns shall constitute a transgression of the NAP, the interpretation of which shall be determined by the LPPC EC. Precisely because we champion peace, we will not stand by quietly if our ideals are compromised by hate or aggression.

Let me be quite clear, we condemn violence and bigotry based on, among other things, race, ethnicity, sex, education, financial status, creed, age, national origin, or sexual orientation as morally repugnant and shall ostracize any person or organization advocating such.

In liberty,
Joe Jacobs
