When the Liberty Rally was postponed to a later date last weekend there was talk of a conspiracy theory regarding the inability to receive a permit. Rally organizer Ken Taylor says that didn't come from leadership. "There were a convergence of what seemed to be coincidences that people were putting together and believing that perhaps the County had not treated us fairly. The leadership of the organization that's not where we stand we take full responsibility of the event not happening because we probably could have done a few other things to ensure that it happened sooner." Taylor says the permit was held up because they were waiting for clearance from the insurance company, and that they just didn't start the application process quite early enough. He adds the County did work with them to try and push it through but there were guidelines they had to follow. The new date for the Liberty Rally has not yet been set.
