Their goal was to do to Jack Hunter & Rand Paul, what they've been trying to do to Ron Paul all these years, and that's label them something they are not, for political gain.
What I find ironic about what happened however, is what went down with Jack Hunter these past couple of weeks, and what went down between Jack & the organizers of LibertyFest NYC in 2011.
For those who don't know the story, Jack Hunter was invited to speak at LibertyFest NYC on September 10th, the day before the 10th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks. Jack had accepted the invitation and all was going smoothly, until a whisper campaign against our event began.
We now know that whisper campaign was started by Kelly Owens, who at the time was volunteering for the Ron Paul campaign in Iowa. She was making phone calls to our speakers, from a blocked number, telling them that our event was a "bait and switch" event. She claimed we were misleading people, telling them this was a Libertarian event, but it was really a 9/11 truther event.
