This is all very interesting. I am a co-founder of Greater Phoenix Tea Party, and have never met Todd Cefaratti to my recollection. I helped host the Tea Party Express bus both times and worked directly with that organization, and because I live in Gilbert, you would think they would refer me to Todd if he indeed was one of their associates.
I have been active in the tea party for two years, and have yet to see or hear of any event put on by this organization. Because Todd Cefaratti has stated that part of the monies were used in helping with the tea party express bus, I must conclude that this is a front operation.
I appreciate your illuminating this issue and will be investigating immediately.
In the name of liberty and integrity,
I'm still waiting for his reply to my questions.
His phrase “our bus tour for 9/12” inspired me to ask him about it. I know about the Tea Party Express Bus Tours but am not familiar with his.
Let me know what you find out.
Hi Kelly, well I have never heard of you either. It doesn’t make me question your motives as being sincere in the tea party movement or not, so I am curious why you immediately assume we are a “front” organization as you call it without any evidence of that whatsoever?
Why don’t you contact Amy Kremer herself and ask her about me and our organization? I just met with her personally two weeks ago at CPAC in Washington DC discussing a town hall event we will likely be co hosting soon together and other future events. Also, Dustin Stockton who used to work for Tea Party Express works for our organization now as our event manager. In case you don’t know who Dustin Stockton is, he was the tea party express social media coordinator and tour coordinator. He was there all during the Searchlight Nevada Harry Reid bus tour. He is also the founder of Western Representation PAC which is a partner PAC we work with.
Some other top tea party people you are free to call for references on our organization and myself are Beth Powers the founder of Liberty In America organization and Ryan Hecker the founder of the contract from America organization. We have done many events with both of their organizations as well.
Thank you all and have a great week.
