Very open-minded of them
The Libertarian Party sinks to a new low:
When members of the San Bernardino County Libertarian Party elected Matthew Barnes as the group’s vice chairman for 2010, they knew he was a registered sex offender.
“The members of the party that voted for him, they voted for him knowing he had completed his time and his punishment and didn’t want to hold that against him,” said Paul Darr, the county party chairman, who says he’s planning a run for the State Assembly. “He completed his punishment by the state and has been reformed.”
Barnes, 41, pleased guilty in 1993 to three countes of lewd or lascivious acts with a child under 14 years old, according to court records.
