Accusations abound that Dems have “tampered with Tea Party” in 4 states.

“The accusations range from helping tea party activists circulate candidate petition sheets to underwriting the creation of official Tea Parties, which then put forth slates of candidates that local conservatives accuse of being rife with Democratic plants. “

That’s a quote from a Politico story concerning more than 6 races in 4 states; MI, FL, NJ, PA. These are not the typical “he stole my yard sign” accusations. Straw man candidates have been used before but there appears to be a concerted effort to undermine some very close races and the lid is coming off.

Its a 3 page story but well worth the read if you are involved in any of these races or in the tea parties. Be mindful it doesn’t happen in your states.
