Libertarian candidate strips on stage at party convention (VIDEO)
The Michigan man was at the party’s convention in Orlando on Sunday where he was a candidate for party chairman, according to NY Daily.
When he took to the stage for a two-minute chance to outline his qualities for the role he told the crowd, “we could use a little bit of fun.”
For a moment it was fun, as Weeks played music via his phone and got the crowd clapping. It soon became too much fun, for Weeks anyway, as he removed his clothes and danced around the stage.
His performance was not appreciated for long though as cheers turned to boos with one man yelling “Get off the stage you’re making an ass out of yourself.”
Weeks then announced on stage that he would be dropping out of the race and that he only ran for a dare.
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
Libertarians now getting mad about strip tease. "I do not want the world to think that's what Libertarians are," says one woman.— Jane C. Timm (@janestreet) May 29, 2016
Gary Johnson, a former New Mexico governor, went on to win the Libertarian Party’s presidential nomination at the convention, with former Massachusetts governor William Weld his vice president nominee. Both kept their pants on.
Weeks has previously run for the Libertarian Party nomination for Livingston County Sheriff in Michigan, according to his website. We eagerly await his next exciting campaign tactic.
