I knew in January, that the tea party movement was going to be the main target of the left, this year, leading right up to the election. Their attempts to neuter the movement using race-baiting smears, and the lame ” Coffee Party” imitation, fell flat, so they’ve moved on to plan C: Outright fraud and deceit. But what else do you expect from Dem Socialists?
A new Tea Party group is trying to get on the ballot in Michigan as a third party, and the effort is being pushed by Progressive Campaigns Inc, and funded by Soros, and the Michigan Democratic Party.
At what point will honest Democrats, observing how their party operates, finally recoil in horror and shame. Are there any honest Democrats, left?
The Blog Professor has the scoop:
This isn’t even AstroTurf. It is outright political fraud. Fearful of the tea party movement in Michigan (which Democrats and Republicans alike should be), the Democrats and/or their special interest groups have begun the process of officially hijacking the movement. Like in Nevada, they will likely launch their own ‘tea party’ candidate that is anything but. Unfortunately for the Democrats, 1) the tea party is more informed than they give us credit for; and 2) this news is breaking at the very conception of this slimy political move. The news was broken last night by Chetley Zarko on his website Outside Lansing: Zarko Research Exclusive: Dem Dirty Trick on Fake Tea Party Petition Revealed
Zarko Research has learned that a nefarious unknown group calling itself “The Tea Party” at PO Box 23 in Richville, MI 48757 (near Flint) is circulating a petition on a paid basis, at roughly $1 per signature to the circulator
. The group is so new that the Secretary of State has nothing on file
as of this moment.
The petition was mailed to known paid circulators in the metro Detroit area earlier this week and based on conclusions of proprietary knowledge to Zarko Research, the petition is being operated by a liberal-leaning petition management firm with ties to the Democratic Party. The petition claims to seek access to the ballot for an entirely new party – the “Tea Party”, although when Zarko Research interviewed known organizers of the Tea Party they all knew nothing about it. …
Read the entire post. They’ve got them dead to rights.
What these fraudsters don’t understand is that the tea party movement is made up of a savvy, and alert citizenry…and the days when operations like this one, (which in years past would have operated successfully under the radar), can fool the American people, are ovah.
See you in November, chumps.
