Shut up, they explained

The Richmond Tea Party paid $8,500 to use the same park that Occupy Wall Street has been using for weeks, paying nothing. So the Tea Party asked for a refund. Richmond’s response? An audit:

Tea party activists in Richmond, Va., watched as liberal Occupy Wall Street protesters paid nothing to use the same park that conservatives paid $8,500 to use for three of its “tax day” rallies. So the tea partyers pushed the issue by demanding a full refund of their fees.

Instead of a check, the Richmond Tea Party received a letter from the city saying it may have failed to pay taxes on ticket and food sales – and it should immediately prepare for an audit.

The city denies allegations that the audit warning was some kind of political retaliation or harassment.
