Tea Party Blocked from Michigan Ballot

On August 23, the Michigan Board of State Canvassers blocked the Tea Party from appearing on the November 2010 ballot.  The vote was 2-2.  A tie keeps a party off the ballot.  Apparently some of the party’s documents refer to it as “The Tea Party” whereas other documents just call it “Tea Party.”  Also, this story discusses some problems with the affidavits of candidacy.  The party will now go to court.  Thanks to Jason Miller for this news.

  1. Oh well, the USTP of Michigan is the only real ‘Tea Party’ anyways.

    However the same needs to be done here in Nevada.

  2. Who are these far right tax payer party types anyway? The real tea party were those founding father types who started this country and they believed in both economic and social freedom. Only one or two political parties have that in common these days.

  3. The MI TP folks were so incompetent /aka STUPID as to have different party names on their paper work stuff ???

    One more plot by the Donkeys ??? Duh.
