Jack Talbert (L-KN) – ‘Libertarian Moron of the Day’

Via: UPI

Jack Talbert is–sorry, was–a Libertarian running for Congress in  Kansas’s 4th District.

“Essentially, when you’re running against Mike  Pompeo, you’re drawing straws to see who’s going to lose to him,” said the man  formerly known as Talbert, referring to his popular incumbent opponent.

But win or lose, the Libertarian candidate for the Wichita seat is no longer  called Jack Talbert, since he legally changed his name to Thomas Jefferson.

“When people see that Thomas Jefferson’s on the ballot, half will think I’m  committed to the Libertarian Party, and the other half will probably think I  should be committed,” Jefferson told the Topeka Capital-Journal. “But whether you  think it’s crazy or not, hopefully it gets people thinking about the founding  fathers and Thomas Jefferson in particular and whether we have that form of  government still.”

Jefferson said he hopes his candidacy will raise the  profile of his “Thomas Jefferson Project,” aimed at limiting the powers of the  Federal Reserve and returning to the gold standard (and slavery, perhaps?).
