Tea Party Leader Resigns Due to Republican Affiliation

Mark Meckler, co-founder and former national director of the Tea Party Patriots resigned last week due to the Tea Party movement being too closely affiliated with the Republican Party.

“The organization had been doing things that associated it with the Republicans Party,” Meckler said Monday on MSNBC. “I’m not a Republican, and large numbers in the movement, 40 percent in the Tea Party movement, aren’t Republicans. So when they sponsored the Southern Republican Leadership debate to the tune of $250,000, really it was just kind of the final blow for me.”
