Liberty For All en Libertarian Super PAC Pounces on Mitch McConnell Following Kentucky Tea Party Warning <p>Piggybacking on a <a href="">warning from more than a dozen Kentucky Tea Party groups</a>, the head of a libertarian-leaning Super PAC says Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., is everything that is wrong with politics.</p><p>Preston Bates is executive director of <a href="">Liberty For All</a>, which is a Texas-based group founded by <a href="">22-year-old millionaire John Ramsey</a>.</p><p>In a series of statements, Bates says McConnell is unpopular enough to unite independents, libertarians and Democrats alike.</p><p>From Liberty for All:</p><blockquote><p><u>On a Primary Challenge</u></p><p>“Mitch McConnell can’t afford a conversation with primary voters on his record, so his only prayer is an Ashley Judd candidacy so he can side-step the primary.”</p><p><u>Is Mitch Tea Party?</u></p><p>“Mitch McConnell is a poster-boy for everything that’s wrong with politics: a career politician who’s made tens of millions while Kentucky families suffer. He’s raised the debt ceiling, called TARP a success, and is fresh of raising taxes on Kentucky’s families. Simply put, he’s anything but a tea partier.” Tue, 22 Jan 2013 22:29:35 +0000 Phillip M. Bailey 3549 at Libertarian Super PAC Pounces on Mitch McConnell Following Kentucky Tea Party Warning Adkins Demands Massie Disavow Super PAC Over Director's DUI Arrest <p>In Kentucky&#39;s Fourth District congressional race, Democratic candidate Bill Adkins is demanding Republican Thomas Massie renounce a super <span class="caps">PAC</span> over its executive director pleading guilty to driving under the influence.</p><p>Earlier this week, <em>The Courier-Journal </em>reported that Liberty For All leader Preston <a href="">Bates faced DUI charges</a> from an incident in July 2011. The police report said Bates crashed his car into a fence, told officers he was an &quot;anarchist&quot; and had a blood alcohol level of 0.121 percent, which is above the .08 percent legal limit.</p><p>Bates&#39;s attorney entered a guilty plea for the 23-year-old on Wednesday. He will pay a fine and have his driver&#39;s license suspended for 30 days.</p><p>In the crowded GOP primary, Bates led the<a href=""> Texas-based super PAC, which put in over $500,000 to support Massie</a> over his opponents.</p><p>In a statement, Adkins says Massie needs to tell the group to get out of Kentucky and argues their positions are &quot;un-American&quot; due to Bates&#39; comments.</p><p>&quot;I call upon Tom Massie to disavow the Ron Paul/Texas Liberty For All SuperPAC Tell them to leave Kentucky and stay out of this race for Congress,&quot; he says. &quot;Liberty for All and its leaders are far out of touch with the values of Kentuckians in the Fourth District. Their executive director is a confirmed anarchist. Anarchists do not believe in any authority, anarchists have no respect for government and anarchists often use violent means to achieve their goals. Their positions are un-American.&quot;</p><p> Thu, 19 Jul 2012 00:45:00 +0000 Phillip M. Bailey 1060 at
