Tea Party Loses 2 Speakers

Friday, 29 Jan 2010 02:00 PM


A convention of Tea Party activists lost two prominent speakers, the latest sign of disagreement over how to showcase the movement’s growing political force.

In separate statements, two Republican congresswomen, Representatives Michele Bachmann of Minnesota and Marsha Blackburn of Tennessee, said that appearing at the convention, scheduled for next week in Nashville, might conflict with House ethics rules.

They also said they had concerns about how money raised from the event would be spent. Other tea partiers have balked at the $550 ticket price and $100,000 fee being paid to the keynote speaker, former Gov. Sarah Palin of Alaska.
