Libertarian stripper banned from party - Rick Montgomery, Livingston Daily: 

June 13, 2016 - "The Howell man whose impromptu strip tease last month at the Libertarian Party's national convention made headlines across the U.S. has been suspended from the party.

"James Weeks II announced Sunday evening that [Michigan] Libertarian Executive Committee officials approved his suspension earlier in the day because of his actions.

"Weeks, chairman of the party's Livingston County branch and an announced party candidate for county sheriff, said 'the reasoning behind this suspension is their disapproval of my use of free expression in lieu of a speech during my run for Libertarian Party chair at the national convention.'

"He also said he received emails and letters of support from Libertarian leaders present at the  convention."
