    Of course, such facts will be downplayed by those who defend the tea party movement to the death and ignore such problems like this with the movement.

    There are hundreds and hundreds of tea party groups across the country. Some have close relationships with the RNC and some don't.

    Freedom of association - it's a wonderful thing.

    But by definition, none of them should have close relationships with the RNC. Especially the largest ones who are going to D.C.

    How you think it's okay for a grassroots movement to have ties to the RNC is boggling.

    Yes. There is nothing wrong with a Tea Party getting help from the RNC as long as they disclose that info. It's up to the local members. There is no National Tea Party Command & Control Organization.

    Grass roots does not mean that cooperation and collaboration with existing organizations is verboten.

    :lol: WUT.

    Do you not know the definition of grassroots?

    If a Tea Party is getting help from the RNC, they are no longer a grassroots group but a arm of the RNC.
