I keep getting these bizarre messages through this site’s contact form from conservative groups asking me to help them get in touch with potential speakers for their meetings. One wanted Orly Taitz to talk to a Republican women’s group in California. This one wants Mike Zullo to speak in Florida. I thought it was interesting since recent comments here questioned whether a legitimate investigator would talk about an ongoing investigation at Tea Party gatherings. Here’s the email:
I see from an email a tea party friend sent me, they are having Mike Zullo speak next week on his investigator research he has done.
I wanted to find a contact so that i can extend an invitation to Mike to speak at the Tea Party Manatee weekly meeting. You can go to www.teapartymanatee.org and see our large group and you can also email me to set this up.
Tea Party Manatee is one of the largest tea parties in FL. We have an email list of 2,800 and a facebook of 800 members. And, we are growing. Last week we had the honor to have as our key note speaker Trevor Loudon from New Zealand.
A quick Google search turned up a good bit of birther activity at the Tea Party Manatee web site, and a strong Jerome Corsi connection. This very public organization may give us a window on what happened with the Surprise Tea Party in Arizona that started the Maricopa County Cold Case Posse witch hunt there.
I never know exactly how to reply to these things. In the case of Orly Taitz, I just sent them her phone number. In this case, I said enigmatically:
Are you really sure you want to have Mike Zullo speak after he was caught fabricating evidence? I wouldn’t touch the guy with a ten-foot pole.
