Stan Meckler: Boardman off base about Tea Party

There he goes again. Once again George Boardman takes an unnecessary attack on the Nevada County Tea Party with an outrageous statement, “If members of the Nevada County Tea Party are going to promote the Constitution to school kids, they should at least learn how to spell the word”.
