Libertarian Party of Virginia Calls for the Resignation of Commonwealth s Attorney Marsha Garst After Raid of Newspaper

RICHMOND, VA -- On Friday, April 16, 2010, Rockingham County Commonwealth's Attorney Marsha Garst arrived at the offices of 'The
Breeze' (the James Madison University student newspaper) with police officers in a raid demanding photographs taken during an altercation
between police and students at Springfest on April 10. They told the editor, Katie Thisdell, if she didn't comply, they would seize
computers and other equipment.

"This is absolutely chilling," said Bill Wood, Chairman of the Libertarian Party of Virginia.

"It is the kind of thing you would hear happening in the former Soviet Union or Cuba, not in the United States of America. In this country
we respect the freedom of the press, which is fundamental in protecting our liberty. Ms. Garst should immediately offer her resignation.
Based on her actions, she is unfit for public office. Any government official who violates the Bill of Rights should be removed and
prosecuted."
