Both Bernie Sanders and the Tea Party Express are trying to profit financially from the shootings in Arizona. How sick is that! Tea Party Express raising money in aftermath of Arizona shooting The Tea Party Express, a California-based conservative political action committee, sent out a letter to supporters Monday requesting donations in reaction to Saturday’s shooting at a political event in Tucson, Arizona that claimed six lives. <snip> From the email/letter. "“It is quite clear that liberals are trying to exploit this shooting for their own political benefit, and they used deception and dishonesty to try and smear all of us and our beliefs,” the letter reads. “You know what the truth is? Â The truth is that the shooter,Â Jared Loughner is the one responsible for this atrocity.Â But liberals are trying to place the blame on society for embracing the tea party movement.” “We have nothing to do with this awful, tragic event in Arizona,” the letter reads. The group, which helped fund the Republican primary campaigns of Joe Miller in Alaska, Christine O’Donnell in Delaware and Sharron Angle in Nevada, ended the letter with a request for donations. “We’re taking our country back through the ballot box and in the public square – through peaceful means,” the letter reads. “And we will prevail, because our ideas and ideals are stronger than the scare/smear/defame tactics of the leftists we face. We ask you to please stand with the Tea Party Express and show your support for our efforts.
