Personal lifeEdit

Horton is married to investigative reporter Larisa Alexandrovna.[8]


In 2004, Horton served as foreign policy adviser to Libertarian Party presidential candidate Michael Badnarik[9].

During the 2008 Presidential Primary season, Horton drew attention as a vocal defender of then-presidential candidate Ron Paul and his criticism of foreign intervention, saying that Paul did not "blame America" and concluded that "foreign occupation – American foreign policy – is a 'major contributing factor' in creating terrorism today, just as it was in the years before September 11th."[10]

In late 2019 Scott officially joined the libertarian party as a lifetime member to support Jacob Hornberger’s campaign for president.[11]
