Here's a news tidbit I recently discovered.
Art Olivier is a bigwig in the Libertarian Party. He was the LP's Vice Presidential candidate in 2000. He was also the LP's candidate for governor of California in 2006.
Well, turns out that his campaign manager, Chelene Nightingale, will be running for governor of California in 2010 -- on the American Independent Party. The Constitution Party also endorses Nightingale's candidacy. (The AIP was the CP's California affiliate, and some AIP members are trying to restore the affiliation.)
As Nightingale says on her campaign website: "Back in 2006, [Nightingale] was the campaign manager for California gubernatorial candidate Art Olivier. Two years later, she would meet with presidential candidate Ron Paul and officially endorse his campaign."
Is this true? Was Nightingale an active Libertarian who defected to the AIP? I've never heard of her, so I wonder just how active she was.
