According to IAP Party officials Bundy’s wife, Carol, and son, Ryan, plan to attend the convention held at the Nugget Casino and Resort.
Las Vegas Federal judge Gloria Navarro dismissed the federal government’s criminal case against Bundy and two of his sons on the basis that the government was guilty of “flagrant misconduct” in the trial. Its conduct was so “outrageous” that “no lesser remedy” than dismissal with prejudice “is sufficient.”
Joel Hansen, chairman of the party with a strong emphasis on state and property rights, says Cliven Bundy’s story is one of “tremendous courage and faith” standing up against federal government “corruption and tyranny.”
The Associated Press reports that about 4.5 percent of the state’s active voters are registered as members of the Independent American Party of Nevada.
