Arizona Gov. Brewer Using Tax Dollars To Promote And Raise Money For Tea Party

Posted by | April 30, 2011 14:31 | Filed under: Top Stories

Governor Jan Brewer of Arizona signed a bill authorizing license plates promoting the tea party that promote donations for the movement.

Brewer, a Republican, acted on the license plate bills late Thursday without commenting. Spokesman Matt Benson declined to make any immediate comment Friday.

The tea party plate would feature the “Don’t Tread On Me” slogan, rattlesnake emblem and yellow background of the historic Gadsden flag, which the movement has adopted.

Opponents say the tag inappropriately promotes a specific political movement. Supporters say it is meant to stand up for constitutional principles.

Proceeds from these plates would be generated to support “tea party governing principles. Funny how an anti-government movement gets this kind of government support.
