Political Activist Howard Phillips Dies

posted on April 22, 2013

 Ralph Z. Hallow of The Washington Times reports that political activist Howard Phillips died April 20 at the age of 73. Hallow writes, “During his 72 years, he went from being a Harvard-educated, unsuccessful Jewish Democratic candidate for public office to an evangelical Protestant Republican who founded the Conservative Caucus and led a decades-long crusade to end the government funding of the left.” Phillips also served in the Nixon administration and “helped found the U.S. Taxpayers Party, which morphed into the Constitution Party.”
