AFP-FSP Twins Separated at Birth
This is Greg Moore, from the NH branch of Americans For Prosperity. AFP is a far, far right political advocacy group, funded by the Koch brothers. Here we see him urging members of the Free State Project (armed libertarians moving to NH to take over and dismantle our state government, then threaten secession - also funded by the Koch brothers) to run for office.
Carla Gericke is the President of the FSP.
Mark Warden is a soon-to-be former State Representative, pondering a run against State Senator Lou D'Alessandro.
Dan and Carol McGuire are Free Staters and state reps, living in Epsom.
This is from the Free State Project website:
We are not a political action organization. We are not tied to any political party or organization; we do not run candidates for election; we do not financially support or endorse candidates; and we do not oppose or endorse legislation.
Hmmm. One of these things is not like the other. They aren't a political action organization - they just want to act politically. This doe-eyed disingenuous routine is getting old.
Note: It's true that they aren't tied to any political party. They mostly run as Republicans, but they encourage people to run as a member of whatever party is most likely to get them elected.
