ONE MORE EXAMPLE OF TEA PARTY DECEIT

The Tea Party email headline said, “BREAKING NEWS! Obama May Have Been Elected With Illegal Votes…” Further, “Blockbuster study backs claim illegal ballots behind Obama’s 2008 victory.” All typical TP bullshit! It concerns a study from Cooperative Congressional Election Study (CCES) that evaluates non-citizens that vote, which, of course, is illegal. The inference from the Teapublicans is that Obama would not have won the 2008 election without the votes of this group. The study says nothing of the sort but does point out just how close some congressional elections might be with these illegals voting. The total in question based on 11 million illegal immigrants in U.S. is 700,000 (6.4%), and even if all had voted for John McCain would not have swung the election to his favor. 

Read Jim Geraghty in The Campaign Spot and you’ll see how blatant the Tea Party can be with outright lies.
