Bob Barr, a 59-year-old former Republican congressman from Georgia, carries some personal and political baggage into his presidential candidacy. In 1994, as a congressional candidate, the thrice-married Barr reportedly licked whipped cream off the breasts of two women at a charity function. He once accidentally fired a .38-caliber pistol through a glass door at a fund-raiser. In Congress, he hardly amassed a libertarian record, leading the fight to impeach Bill Clinton, writing the Defense of Marriage Act, pushing for the Patriot Act, and opposing a woman’s right to choose.
There is nothing libertarian about Bob Barr, at all.
