TPP announces $1 million donation

An anonymous, $1 million donation has been made to the locally co-founded Tea Party Patriots. The organization, which espouses fiscal responsibility in government, announced the donation this week.

“In keeping with the spirit and philosophy of Tea Party Patriots, this fund will be immediately and broadly distributed to tea party organizations on the ground, in order to allow them to leverage their current efforts,” said Chicago Park resident Mark Meckler, co-founder and national coordinator of Tea Party Patriots. “We will continue to focus on the Tea Party activists in the field. They are responsible for the success of the Tea Party movement.”

Meckler’s father, Stan Meckler, did not know yet know how much of the fund would go to his locally based group, the Nevada County Tea Party Patriots.
