Filed under: Uncategorized — Tags: , , , , , , , — weeklysedition @ 2:34 AM

Recently, the Boston Tea Party’s membership debated a question about invalidating the nomination of Tiffany Briscoe.

National Chair Darryl W. Perry opened a poll. The results were nine (9) votes in favor of invalidating the nomination of Briscoe, with three (3) members voting against.

As per National Chair Perry, the BTP nominee for President of the United States is now “NOTA” (“None of the Above”).

Kimberly Brighton-Barrick remains the BTP nominee for Vice-President of the United States.

BTPNM Bylaws Now Online

Filed under: Uncategorized — Tags: , — weeklysedition @ 2:24 AM

The interim Bylaws for the Boston Tea Party of New Mexico are now posted online, both at the BTPNM Yahoo! and Google groups.

Here’s a link to the copy posted at the Google group.

A few notes about the Bylaws I posted —

I borrowed a couple of bits from the Libertarian Party of New Mexico‘s Constitution and Bylaws. In particular, the beginning part about the Party’s name and emblem. To this I added a part that allows for the State Committee to design a logo, so long as it’s consistent with the platform.

I changed the part about the State Committee from what the National Bylaws say (four at-large members) to one at-large member and one from each of New Mexico’s U.S. Congressional districts. This is to create a barrier against a group meeting OFFLINE and conspiring to pack the committee. True, there’s nothing that stops people from doing this online via private emails. At least by doing this, the committee will have an incentive to develop county-, campus- or tribal-level affiliates in different parts of the state.

Article 12 was entirely my creation. This is in there so the BTPNM State Committee can make endorsements outside of the BTPNM if it’s deemed necessary.
