Toni Nathan: 1923-2014
Tonie Nathan, the first woman to receive an electoral vote in U.S. history, has died. She received that vote as the Libertarian Party's Vice Presidential candidate in 1972. She's also the first jewish woman to gain a U.S. vice presidential nomination.
I actually spoke with her on the phone about 20 years ago. Forget the exact details but I called her regarding some bumper sticker she designed or had rights to. That's one neat thing about the smaller parties. You can actually call up some of the higher ups and chat with them.
