Damon Eris: Utah League of Independent Voters Founder Randy Miller Puts State Politicians Up For Sale

INDEPENDENT PUTS STATE POLITICIANS FOR SALE ONLINE (by Damon Eris, CAIVN) Bidding opened early last Friday on an eBay auction for Utah State Sen. Jerry Stevenson.  The seller was Randy Miller, founder and president of the Utah League of Independent Voters.  Judging from the original listing, which has since been deleted by eBay, Miller was not confident that he would find a buyer.  Indeed, he even warned: “Buyer beware. This toy is broken. I wish it would be recalled. It is a representative that does not represent.”  The opening price for Sen. Stevenson was just one penny, and the seller stated that he would even consider a simple trade for a representative that represents the people of its district rather than the interests of its party.

You can reach Randy Miller at ULIV...

And thanks to Damon Eris for covering this grassroots independent movement!
