Oregon Libertarians bared a lot more than just their arms during a rally spurred by the lack of media attention to the third party this election cycle.
Gary Dye — the Libertarian candidate campaigning against U.S. Senator Jeff Merkley this year — helped organize the demonstration in the buff on the multi-use path of the Glenn Jackson Interstate-205 bridge connecting Oregon and Washington between 1 and 3 p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 3.
"(It's) a result of Libertarian candidates for office getting zero attention from the media this year," Dye said in a message to the Tribune. "Whether I am wearing any clothes remains to be seen."..
