Libertarian Party chairman candidate does striptease on stage
A candidate for the chairmanship of the Libertarian Party made a splash Sunday evening.
The man took the stage to defend his chosen candidate for the party’s vice presidential nomination, Derrick Grayson, as the results of the second ballot were tabulated, according to reporters on the scene. During that time, candidates for chairman of the party were allowed two minutes each to speak.
Man objects to being called a "kool-aid drinker" by Grayson for supporting Weld. Crowd moans and cheers. Still tabulating 2nd ballot votes.— Vaughn Hillyard (@VaughnHillyard) May 29, 2016ADVERTISEMENT

The man stripped down to his underwear before saying he was doing it for a dare and leaving the stage.
Delegates not happy with the stripping fellow. Heard one mumble "At a time when we need to be taken seriously..."— Byron Tau (@ByronTau) May 29, 2016
As the guy was stripping at the Libertarian convention, a delegate was shouting on a live mic calling him a "moron" and an "idiot"— Ben Jacobs (@Bencjacobs) May 29, 2016
Several delegates came to the microphones after the display to complain, with one attempting to revoke the man's membership from the party.
"That was so offensive it's a violation of the non-aggression pledge," says another speaker with some pretty clever Libertarian humor.— Jane C. Timm (@janestreet) May 29, 2016
