Can this possibly be much of a surprise? From TPM:
"The political action committee behind the Tea Party Express (TPE) -- which already has been slammed as inauthentic and corporate-controlled....directed almost two thirds of its spending during a recent reporting period back to the Republican consulting firm that created the PAC in the first place."
Well there you go. The teabaggers- suckers for the rich and powerful, from beginning to end. It's not enough that they are serving the purpose of their corporate masters every time they get out and march around calling themselves patriots. They couldn't even donate money for their beloved tea parties without being robbed blind. Well, what do you expect?
