A month ago I put up a post detailing the Richmond Tea Party's attempt to recover money they were charged by the city to hold a rally, this in light of the Occupy protest being able to do what they did months later without being charged similarly.
Yesterday I was contacted by Colleen Owens about a new twist to the story, a twist that suggests some in Richmond have it in for the Tea Party in a most nasty way.
Her piece at Big Government tells us more:
Two weeks after the Richmond Tea Party delivered an invoice to Richmond Mayor Dwight Jones for costs incurred for previous rallies, we received a letter from the City of Richmond formally stating that the city is auditing our Tea Party. Coincidence? This audit is an obvious attempt to intimidate and harass us for standing up against the unfair treatment and discrimination against our Tea Party.
Read the entire piece.
If this isn't abuse of power, nothing is.
