    Jenny Beth Martin.
    Bankrupts on 700K worth of debt and this is their leader.
    What a great role model for leadership there.
    Unfortunately, this represents the majority of that crowd. They do not work hard at much of anything, have so much free time they can attend rallies and are more dysfunctional than the current GOP.

    Jenny Beth Martin, Tea Party Leader, Says Movement Has 'No Place For' Racist Behavior

    Lee Martin took out loans and used credit cards to try to keep Indwell operating, she said. In 2008, he filed for bankruptcy, with tax debts alone of more than $680,000.

    By filing for bankruptcy, the Martins avoided paying debts to some creditors. They still owe the IRS and state.

    These days, her husband repairs computers. As head of the Tea Party Patriots, Martin draws a monthly salary of about $6,000. “I didn’t start this to get a job,” she said.

    The house is gone; so are the Navigators. The Martins bought a $2,100 heap, which recently broke down. Last week, they started getting around in a $27-a-day rental car.

    Wait a second. She gets 6 thou a month? That's like 72 thou a year AND her husband works? And they can't afford what? They must make well over a hundred thousand a year.

    WTF?

    Thomas Jefferson filed for bankruptcy three separate occasions. I guess he'd be part of the Tea Party as well.

    Nope, Jefferson was a liberal. Instead of paying his bills he ran up debts to buy expensive wine and have work done on his property. Sounds familiar.
    Jefferson stiffed most everyone that worked on his property. Since he owned slaves and had them work for free, that sense of entitlement and arrogance made him believe he should get something for nothing from everyone.

    Teabaggers are the epitome of "Great Americans". They never do anything wrong and are pure as the falling snow.

    Therefore, this must be LIES! LIES I TELL YOU!

    /sarcasm.

    Here's some fucking irony. The GOP activists (aka teabaggers) support a party that passed a bankruptcy bill that is going to make their bankruptcy more difficult.

    Useful idiots.

    Bullshit that has been refuted time and again.

    If the teabaggers are just rife with DEMs and Independents, why are they running in GOP primaries?
