The Libertarian Party may have to shut down its petition drive in Oklahoma because of “thuggish behavior” by law enforcement.
“Thuggish behavior by police and security in Oklahoma has prevented our petitioners from getting access to public places to collect signatures,”said Wes Benedict, Libertarian Party executive director.
“Even the Oklahoma A.C.L.U. has been trying, but so far, failing, to help us get the police to stop harassing our petitioners and threatening to arrest them, even when we are petitioning legally on constitutionally protected places like public sidewalks near universities and art fairs.”
The LP urgently needs donations and petitioners soon, otherwise it will have to shut down the drive. Petitions will be paid $2.50 per signature.
