TEA Party Claims Double Standard at Division of Elections

Editor’s Note – Two more down, and it only been a week! 

A few interesting trends are beginning to develop from those who make up the Florida T.E.A. Party political party. 

One is that whenever things don’t go their way, there’s always a cry of being singled out or not being treated fairly, as if there’s a grand conspiracy in the world against them.  Were they talking about those who stand to be most effected by their disingenuous actions, they may be right, but to make this claim against the Division of Elections?  Seriously?

Another trend is the general ineptitude of this organization, apparent in a multitude of late filings, errors and omissions on required documentation.  Perhaps, if the Florida T.E.A. Party spent as much time crossing their ‘t’s and dotting their ‘i’s as they do disparaging opposition, they’d be doing themselves a favor.

One last trend is the habit of labeling all opponents as ‘Republican Party operatives’,  casting this claim all about the state.  Even when you consider the legendary poor judgement of the RPOF, you have to acknowledge that they’re not this free with their finances, at least not outside their own circle. 

All in all, not very admirable qualities for a party that claims to be the savior of political parties in America.

 

TEA Party Claims Double Standard at Division of Elections

The Florida TEA Party claims that two of its candidates who were bounced from the fall ballot were victims of “ticky-tack technicalities” at the state Division of Elections.

James Ferentinos and Marshall DeRosa “did not name a depository as required by statute,” said Jennifer Krell Davis, communications director for the Florida Department of State.

DeRosa, who had filed to run in state Senate District 30, was nonplussed.

“I didn’t include the address of the bank, but the address was on the check I submitted,” said DeRosa, a professor at Florida Atlantic University in Davie.

“I’m not upset, but curious. I question what the secretary of state’s motive was. They could have called me if they had a problem and tried to make some accommodation,” he said.

O’Neal maintains that DeRosa and Ferentinos were arbitrarily singled out and unfairly removed.
