Libertarian Party of Indiana Convention Sign Held Hostage (Warning - It's a Joke - Don't Call the Police)
I received this note and the above picture by email yesterday:
You do want to see your state sign at national convention? If you want to see it delivered in one piece, participate in the LPO's new "High Ransom Pledge Program." To save your sign, we require a "contribution" of $2,000.
If we do not receive money, we will begin sending you 1" by 1" squares of your state sign until the ransom, I mean "contribution," is paid.
Peoples' Libertarian Revolutionary Front of Oregon
PS: See Photo Attached if you do not believe we are serious.

The guy in the picture looks a lot like Libertarian Party of Oregon chair Adam Mayer, but it can't be him - can it?
Who says Libertarians don't have a sense of humor?
