Results of Email Ballot 2018-05: Suspension of Arvin Vohra


We have an electronic mail ballot.Votes are due to the LNC-Business list by April 12, 2018 at 11:59:59pm Pacific time.

Co-Sponsors: Harlos, Van Horn, Katz, Hayes, Goldstein, Redpath, Hewitt, O’Donnell,

WHEREAS, the Libertarian Party holds the non-initiation of force as its
cardinal principle and requires each of its members certify that they
neither advocate or believe in violent means to achieve political or
social goals.

RESOLVED, that the Libertarian National Committee suspends Arvin Vohra
from his position of Vice-Chair for sustained and repeated unacceptable
conduct that brings the principles of the Libertarian Party into
disrepute, including making and defending a statement advocating lethal
violence against state employees who are not directly threatening
imminent physical harm. Such action is in violation of our membership
pledge. These actions further endanger the survival of our movement and
the security of all of our members without their consent.

Voting has ended for the email ballot shown below:

Voting “aye”: Bilyeu, Goldstein, Hagan, Harlos, Hayes, Hewitt, Katz,
Mattson, O’Donnell, Redpath, Van Horn
Voting “nay”: Demarest, Lark, Marsh, Sarwark, Starchild, Vohra

With a final vote tally of 11-6, the motion FAILS to meet the Bylaws Article 6.7 threshold of 2/3 of the entire National Committee.

I have asked for a resolution asking Arvin to resign to be placed on the agenda for the LNC meeting next weekend in Denver.
