Damien Ober, an aspiring Libertarian candidate for DC’s shadow senator seat, has a new video up that hints at a potential scheme to infiltrate the Libertarian mainstream (obvs., that’s sort of a contradictory idea). Like his other videos, which I wrote about this week, this one is intentionally mysterious. So I won’t make any conclusions. I think the plot will continue to unfold. Ober says he still hopes to get enough signatures to get his name on the ballot — but it will be tight. You can find him, and his petitions, at Marx Cafe.
