Legal news website Law & Crime reports that a New Hampshire man has attempted to register as a candidate in the country’s first presidential primary under the name “Epstein Didn’t Kill Himself.”
The man’s real name is Rod Webber, and he is described in the Manchester Ink Link as a colorful character in local politics:
Webber is a pacifist, a vegetarian, a singer-songwriter, a neo-hippie and performance artist, who’s made a name for himself on the campaign trail of late as “the flower guy.” He sports a beard and a top hat while philosophizing over Biblical passages on war and fracking, and what makes a man well-suited for public office, always offering a peace offering of a flower in the end, to punctuate his point of view.
As press awaits @JoeBiden, this candidate is arguing with NH officials that he should be able to get on the ballot as “Epstein Didn’t Kill Himself Weber.” Then someone else walked in and asked the Epstein guy to move out of the way so he could file for the ballot.

According to Law & Crime, Webber’s social media timeline suggests that he does not identify with either political party and is described as “something of an anarchist.” The New Hampshire man insists he does not “believe in isms.” . . .
The Ink also noted that Weber was ejected from a campaign event for Senator Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) during the 2016 Republican primary, but was eventually invited back in. “Later they reversed that and set up a meeting between Rubio and I. I gave him flowers,” said Webber. “It’s symbolic, like, if you become president, that you have a peaceful term. Rubio said he was starting to get jealous that I hadn’t given him a flower yet.” (Read more from “Man Tries Filing for President as ‘Epstein Didn’t Kill Himself'” HERE)
