Try 3 months for $3

The 2004 Libertarian Party presidential candidate Michael J. Badnarik was hospitalized Tuesday at Gundersen Lutheran Medical Center in La Crosse after an apparent heart attack.

Badnarik was fitted with a temporary pacemaker and a balloon pump to ease stress on his heart, according to Libertarian Party sources.

A Gundersen Lutheran spokesman said he could not provide any information due to patient confidentiality.

Badnarik, president of the 2009 Continental Congress, was attending a hearing regarding a raw milk case in Viroqua when he collapsed, said Gary Franchi, the national director of Restore the Republic.

Franchi told Alex Jones' that Badnarik got in a car to go to lunch with friends and slumped over. "His friends attempted CPR and contacted the paramedics," Franchi said in an e-mail. "They attempted to revive him three times with no success. Upon the fourth attempt, his heart was revived yet with erratic behavior."
