Tea Parties Betrayed by Illinois GOP

Robert Moon finds that the GOP in Illinois is making a concerted effort to crush Tea Party candidates - and breaking the law doing so. "The Republican State Central Committee in Illinois is instructing its County Chairmen to illegally stack the deck against Tea Party reformers in the March 3rd elections," Moon writes at Examiner.com on Feb. 22. "The Tea Party movement has spent the last year recruiting new Precinct Committeeman candidates to take back the Republican Party for actual grassroots conservatives. But the votes of these newly-elected officials are now going to be nullified as County Chairmen across the state exercise their made-up, non-existent right to vote vacant precincts however they see fit." This is disturbing, but not terribly surprising. The solution, of course, is to push back and - ultimately - crush the useless, teats-on-a-bull Republican Party of Illinois. Today, Moon wrote his thoughts about how Tea Partiers can fight the GOP's attempt to silence them. Leave a Comment * Conservative T-Shirts * Follow CNB on Twitter * RSS Feed
