Update on Judge Souter and the Lost Liberty Hotel

According to a new article in the Dakota Voice, Logan Darrow Clements has received an enthusiastically supportive response from New Hampshire residents and is proceeding with his plans for the Lost Liberty Hotel:
Logan Darrow Clements, CEO of Freestar Media, LLC, is moving forward with plans to have the town of Weare, New Hampshire, take the home of Supreme Court Judge David H. Souter for development of a new “Lost Liberty Hotel.”
As reported by Dakota Voice and others, Clements expressed interest in Souter’s home after a Supreme Court ruling supported by Souter himself was made in “Kelo vs. City of New London,” allowing city governments to take land from one private owner and give it to another if the government will generate greater tax revenue or other economic benefits when the land is developed by the new owner.
Just 24 hours after Clements’ announcement, the town of Weare was “inundated” by calls and emails of support for Clements’ proposal.
Mr. Clements wants to build “The Lost Liberty Hotel,” which will feature the “Just Desserts Café.” The hotel would include a museum, open to the general public, featuring a permanent exhibit on the loss of freedom in America. Instead of a Gideon’s Bible each guest will receive a free copy of Ayn Rand’s novel “Atlas Shrugged.”
In the Lost Liberty Hotel newsletter issued today, Clements said some of the comments he has received “inspired me and others made me laugh so hard I nearly fell out of my chair.”
Clements says he has received about 6,000 emails and voicemails, and his website started to receive about 370,000 visits a day. He is is looking to hire staff to help him.
The newsletter also states that Clements is looking for an experienced hotel developer. He is already talking to several companies, but would like to hear from more so that he can make the best decision possible.
Clements also says that even if the Board of Selectmen in Weare doesn’t vote in favor of his proposal, which would generate more tax revenue for them than Souter’s property tax nets, that several citizens are drafting ballot initiatives which would bypass the Board and accomplish the same results.
Clements points out that he has not yet officially made this proposal, but wants to secure a development company first, to prepare all the architectural drawings, economic viability statistics, financial statements, etc. to illustrate how the venture will work and succeed. Clements says that at this point, he has only faxed the town, asking them to outline the procedures for making such a proposal.
Clements is scheduled to appear on a national cable television show the afternoon of Tuesday, July 12 (more details to follow).
