As a humanitarian, she values extremely highly the education of the next generation and is part of the Board of Trustees of the Howard Community College, of which she is a former graduate.
Briscoe secured the BTP nomination with 13 of 20 votes cast over the internet. Robert Milnes, a candidate for the Libertarian presidential nomination, was also a candidate for the BTP nomination and received one vote (presumably his own).
He writes on his site today,
I called Howard Community College. 443-518-1000 President’s Office 443-518-1820. Reportedly Tiffany Briscoe, in contradiction to her website tab Who is Tiffany is not a graduate of HCC nor is presently a member of the Board of Trustees. The President’s Office asked me some questions and I referred them to Briscoe’s website and BTP website. I think they were concerned that a student was claiming to be a graduate and a member of the Board of Trustees…
Ms. Briscoe has not been reached for comment, nor have Mr. Milnes’ statements been verified with HCC at this time.
The BTP was on the ballot in 3 states in 2008; it is not yet known how many, if any, states it will be on the ballot in in 2012, but their goal is up to fifteen.
The Boston Tea Party (BTP) is a U.S. political party named after the Boston Tea Party of 1773. Its ideology is libertarian.
A group of former Libertarian Party (LP) members founded the party in 2006. They criticized the LP for its “abdication of political responsibilities”, saying that “Americans deserve and desperately need a pro-freedom party that forcefully advocates libertarian solutions to the issues of today”.
The Boston Tea Party supports reducing the size, scope and power of government at all levels and on all issues, and opposes increasing the size, scope and power of government at any level, for any purpose.
