In a surprise announcement on today’s radio broadcast of The Schilling Show, Wayne Allyn Root—2008 Libertarian Vice Presidential nominee—officially endorsed Republican Mitt Romney for president. Root also announced his impending resignation from the Libertarian Party and his intention to re- join the Republican Party:
I just made the decision yesterday, officially; I’ve been thinking about it for ninety days now, but I just pulled the trigger yesterday and I’ll be announcing it on all the major media, on TV and radio next week. That the Libertarian Vice Presidential candidate, and the leading Libertarian in the country, that’s me, the chairman of the LNCC, Libertarian National Campaign Committee, on the governing board of the Libertarian Party, the LNC. Ah, I’ve decided to leave the Libertarian Party and become a Republican again and I have endorsed Mitt Romney for President of the United States.
Toward the end of the interview, Root—a former classmate of President Barack Obama and a frequent critic of his administration’s policies—also revealed alleged political persecution at the hands of the IRS. The tax collection agency initiated two audits on Root in rapid succession, which Root believes were politically motivated and possibly ordered at the direction of President Obama.
