The Green Party issued the following “Alert” regarding the actions and activities of a man named Carey Campbell, who has no affiliation with the Green Party but presents himself as if he does. Campbell has been a frequent commenter on this website until being banned (again) last week. He was banned from GPW last year for impersonating candidates without their knowledge and lying about candidates’ backgrounds.
The press conference at the National Press Club on Thursday, Oct. 14, organized by a group calling itself “Independent Green Party of Virginia” (IGPV) is in no way sponsored by or connected with the Green Party of the United States.
The IGPV is not affiliated with the Green Party of the US. The legitimate state affiliate is the Green Party of Virginia.
There is no effort within the Green Party of the US, as far as we know, to encourage Mayor Michael Bloomberg of New York to seek the Green nomination for President. The IGPV has every right to urge Mayor Bloomberg to run for President, but any claim of a Draft Bloomberg campaign within the Green Party of the US is false.
We advise Greens, the media, and the public not to associate the IGPV or its platform with the Green Party of the US or any affiliated state Green Party.
The IGPV was founded by Carey Campbell, who has been barred from participation in the Green Party in the District of Columbia and Virginia because of disruptive and dishonest behavior.
If anyone has questions, contact Scott McLarty, media coordinator for the Green Party of the United States, at firstname.lastname@example.org or 202-518-5624.
