Info Professor George Phillies has been active in the "reform" movement within the LP for the past few years. Running on a "Clean Slate" platform -- criticizing the alleged insider deals involving party donations and consulting contracts -- Phillies was an unsuccessful candidate for LP National Chair in 2002 (3rd place - 22%). Now he is making a bid for the 2004 LP Presidential nomination. Phillies, who earned his doctorate in physics from MIT, is a former Army Reserve enlisted man and a former Republican. He joined the LP in the late 1980s. "I am not a social conservative. When George [H.W.] Bush attached himself to the 'Christian Right' [in 1988], he took the Republican Party his way and I went my way," explained Phillies. He quickly became active in he LP, rising to the position of State LP Executive Director by 1996. He also was the LP nominee for US Senator in 1996 and for Congress in 1998. A physics professor, Phillies gained international recognition for his scientific studies of light scattering, soaps, and polymer solutions. Phillies has also written a few science fiction books, numerous sci-fi short stories, lots of academic articles, and a book detailing the financial/ethics problems within the Liberatarian National Committee.
