Black Tea Party Group Calls on Grayson Donors to Drop Support
On Monday, the South Central Los Angeles Tea Party, which is heavily black, called on donors to Rep. Alan Grayson (D-FL) to remove support from his re-election campaign in the aftermath of Grayson’s mailer comparing the Tea Party to the Ku Klux Klan. “My organization has made numerous attempts to reach out to Rep. Grayson asking for an apology, but he has refused saying: ‘If the shoe fits, wear it,’” Rev. Jesse Lee Peterson, founder of the group, said. “We are sick and tired of liberal elite members of the Democratic party not being held accountable. Grayson is trying to re-write the racist past of his own party and lying about Tea Party Republicans in order to scare blacks into supporting him. Grayson knows that most Democratic lawmakers opposed civil-rights for blacks and that the Ku-Klux-Klan was made up of Southern Democrats.”
Peterson said that the group would reach out to donors including the American Association for Justice, the Teamsters, AT&T, and Honeywell International. TruthRevolt hassimultaneously called on sponsors of Grayson to denounce Grayson’s comments.
