Tea Party Group Sends Letter To Congress

11.23.10 10:01 PM

The group Tea Party Nation (TPN) has sent a letter to Congress in hopes of discrediting the validity of another organization claiming to be part of the Tea Party movement.

According to CNN, Judson Phillips, founder of TPN, recently sent a letter to Representative John Boehner (R-Ohio) and Senator Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) with a list of the primary goals of the Tea Party movement, as well as a direct response to GOProud, which sent Congress a letter on Nov. 15.

The Advocate reports that GOProud, an organization made up of gay Republicans, teamed with Tea Party leaders from several states and urged GOP leaders to focus on fiscal issues before tackling social issues. Phillips took exception with the letter from GOProud, claiming that the group has never been affiliated with the Tea Party.

"A small group of non-Tea Party, non-conservatives, released a letter, trying to claim leadership of the Tea Party movement and purporting to tell you what the Tea Party movement wants," Phillips wrote in his letter to Congress, quoted by CNN.

Included in Phillips' message to McConnell and Boehner is a call for Republicans to fight the repeal of "don't ask, don't tell" (DADT). GOProud noted that the DADT repeal is the only issue where the two groups disagree.
