Tea Party Is Now A–Party
Not satisfied with Charlie Crist as a Republican and certainly not liking any Democrat, far-right conservatives are launching a third party named after the beverage. Frederic O’Neal, an Orlando attorney who has represented tax protesters, is the party chairman.
O’Neal compared his party’s role to that of the Conservative Party in New York’s 23rd District. Florida, however, lacks the “fusion” rules that has allowed third parties in New York to amass influence by offering their ballot line to acceptable major-party candidates.
The Tea Party will become one of 32 minor political parties certified by the state, including also the Real Food Party of the United States of America, the Prohibition Party, and the Florida Socialist Workers Party.
Who knows? Maybe they’ll have the same luck they had in NY-23.Click here for reuse options!
