Imperato Speaks to North Carolina LP

Oddball independent-turned-Libertarian Presidential candidate Daniel Imperato spoke to the North Carolina Libertarian Party at their convention.

From the Hickory Record...

He claims to be a worldwide businessman, operating companies from Palm Beach, Fla., to Hong Kong and in between.

Daniel J. Imperato now claims to be a legitimate candidate for the office of president of the United States.

Imperato, 49, introduced himself to members of the Libertarian Party of North Carolina at its convention at Park Inn Gateway Conference Center on Sunday.

“I have more experience than any presidential candidate,” he told party members. “I have studied the political situations around the world. I don’t believe any presidential candidate can stand toe to toe with me.”

Imperato went from being a Republican and Bush supporter to an independent. He recently joined the ranks of the Libertarian Party as he began to shape his platform for his candidacy.

He says his platform continues to shift as he weans himself off his older political stances. He vows to adhere to the tenets found within the Bill of Rights, the Declaration of Independence and the U.S. Constitution.

“My platform is being ‘manicured,’” he said. “People are fed up with Democrats and Republicans. “I need the (Libertarian) party to come together. I’m here to win. I’m on a mission to devote my life to the people.”

His remarks were met with some skepticism within the sparse crowd. Still, they listened and applauded as he finished his short speech.

Imperato says he hopes to raise between $30 million and $50 million between now and the party’s national convention. He says he has spent about $2 million of his own money and has raised none for the campaign.

His name is recorded on the Federal Election Commission Web site as having filed for candidacy.

    I’m starting to believe this guy is as delusional as Randy Crow, Gene Chapman, “President” Adams, etc. Hopefully, I’m wrong.

  2. Anthony Distler Says:

    Imperato is also seeking the Reform Party nomination, as well. Of course, we in the Reform Party aren’t really looking for someone who follows any sort of platform, so we may as well give it to him.

    [...] There was just a very skeptical newspaper article about him in the post before this one… but at the same time basically lumping him right in with the LP. [...]

    30-50 million?
    HAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHAA

    Wait…AND he is openly admitting that his platform has shifted? Moron.

  5. John Richards Says:

    Well we all know that the guy will need some major money to be competitive. So while 30-50 million is off the wall for all of us, who knows, this guy may get close to getting it.
