Republican State Representative Nate Bell posted on Facebook that Libertarian Gary Johnson and those who voted for him are "enemies of freedom, liberty, and the constitution," because they contributed to President Obama's re-election over Mitt Romney.
"For someone to say we're enemies of liberty and freedom; not only do we stand for liberty, but peace and justice for all. He really upset a lot of Libertarians," said Libertarian Party of Arkansas member Dugan King.
Bell says the Libertarian party has twisted his words to create controversy.
He adds he stands by the original language of the post, as well as the subsequent comments he made on it.
