There was an interesting letter sent to the Libertarian Party of Florida’s Executive Committee. (Emails sent to the Executive Committee are available at https://docs.lpf.org/ec-emails/. Most of them are pretty boring, having to do with adding things to the agenda, etc.)
I am writing to request the removal of Marcos Miralles, Pierre-Alexandre Crevaux, James Chipman, Ryan Ramsey, and Brandi Hicks from the LPF membership.
Mr Chipman is known to hold racists views that are contrary to the form of the Libertarian viewpoint as espoused by Gary Johnson. Both Mr Ramsey and Brandi Hicks are vocal racists who have used both antisemitic terminology and degrogatory terms for African Americans.Mr Miralles has not only allowed this behavoir to occur, but has promoted said individuals to position of authority, knowing their behavoir. It shows a total disregard for the party’s branding and a lack of real Libertarian leadership.Mr Crevaux has not only aided in this disaster, but is a known fraudster. He has illegally overstayed his visa, continuously claiming to be correcting this issue and in reality doing nothing. He created a fraudulent Presidential campaign to crash an puritanical libertarian party on behalf of the 2012 Johnson campaign, and frequently admits to it. He has also broken the federal law be holding positions in authority in both political campaigns and political parties, which is against the federal law. He has also donated $100 to an affiliate, also breaking federal law.I ask you, for the sake of liberty, to remove this unscrupulous individuals.ShalomHadassah L. Eichmann
I read your email on the https://docs.lpf.org/ec-emails/ site. I have no idea if your accusations are correct since you provided no evidence. However, writing an email to the Executive Committee will not produce the results you are looking for.If you are looking at changing the make up of the Executive Committee, you’ll need to build up support among the libertarians attending the Annual Convention (https://conf.lpf.org/) both this year and next year. You’ll need to run a slate of officers against them and have them removed through the ballot.Marcos Mirrales’ term does not end until the 2019 convention, so you’ve got time to recruit a candidate.Pierre-Alexandre Crevaux is not an officer of the Libertarian Party of Florida. As far as I can tell, his only office is with the County Affiliate for Miami Dade County. As such, the LPF EC cannot do anything about his position; you’ll need to work with the County affiliate directly.James Chipman is also not an officer of the Libertarian Party of Florida. As far as I can tell, he used to be the Regional Representative to the LPF EC for Region 5 (Nassau, Duval, Clay, and St. Johns Counties), but I cannot find any current affiliation with the Libertarian Party of Florida.Ryan Ramsey is the regional representative to the LPF EC for Region 4 (Hamilton, Suwannee, Lafayette, Dixie, Gilchrist, Columbia, Union, Bradford, and Alachua counties), and is selected by the members of the convention from Region 4. If you wish for him to be removed from the Executive Committee, you need to find a different candidate from those counties and have the members of the convention vote for the other candidate. His current term expires at the end of the convention.Brandi Hicks is not an officer of the Libertarian Party of Florida. She is an officer of the Bradford County chapter of the Libertarian Party. As such, the LPF EC cannot do anything about her position; you’ll need to work with the County affiliate directly.Will you be attending the 2018 Annual Convention? If so, you’ll need to bring in suggested officers to replace the people you are accusing, and you’ll need to bring evidence supporting your charges. Since the charges are significant, then the evidence will need to be, too.
Then today I found a response to the original email from a member of the LPF EC:
Hello Mr. Eichmann,Thank you for reaching out to the Libertarian Party of Florida. At this time, there will be no official action to remove, censure or suspend any members of the Party as our bylaws prevent us from doing so. If you feel that you would like to see a change in leadership, I invite you to attend our 2018 State Convention held on Feb 23rd-25th in Fort Walton Beach, FL to cast your vote for your executive officers of choice. This is by far the most effective and strategic way to make sure that those whom you want representing you are in leadership positions within your Party. Please see https://conf.lpf.org/ for registration, scheduling and venue details. I hope to see your participation and as always keep fighting for freedom.

There’s been a little more back and forth of the emails between Steven Nekhaila and Hadassah L. Eichmann. Basically, Hadassah L. Eichmann complained about being misidentified as a man. Steven apologized, and Hadassah L. Eichmann didn’t accept the apology, choosing to complain some more.

Hadassah Eichmann sent me a reply to the above email.
After reading this post, Hadassah Eichmann sent me yet another email. Since the email only had to do with this post, and not with my reply, I’m adding it here. (I wonder why the “Comment” feature wasn’t used. That way the original wording of the reply would be saved.) The only criticism made about this post was about the misidentification of gender in the original post. So I’ve edited it to remove the “Mr.” that I originally included, replacing it with Hadassah. Apparently Hadassah Eichmann had no other comments to make.
