teabagger Alert!! – ‘Georgia tea party convention stiffs speakers but offers to hold ‘carnival’ to raise funds’
‘According to the Athens Banner-Herald, convention planners expected more than 2,500 attendees for the Liberty Convention, which was held in June’.
‘Instead, a mere 92 people trickled through the doors’.
‘The Athens, Georgia Tea Party Patriots announced that they will be holding a series of fund-raising events in order to pay the $65,000 that the group owes to speakers who appeared at its first ever Liberty Convention’.
‘At a “press conference” on Saturday, which the newspaper described as “actually a lengthy conversation with an Athens Banner-Herald reporter,” Athens-Clarke County Tea Party Patriots chairman Keyantwon Stephens was unable to say specifically what type of fund-raising activities the group might resort to in order to pay its debts’.
‘He touched on the idea of a “community carnival” in passing, but declined to elaborate’.
