Two recipients of Freedom Partners' money were the Teaparty "Patriots" and the Teaparty Express. According to , they received $800,000, although it's not clear if each group received that amount or if that's the combined total. While Teapartiers try to pretend they're a grassroots, leaderless group, hundreds of thousands of dollars tends to provide a great deal of "leadership".
Whether as a result of Koch largesse or just due to other reasons, the Teaparty "Patriots" have obsessed over stopping Obamacare while making opposing amnesty a much lower priority.
And, Sal Russo of Tea Party Express openly supports amnesty, saying "it's the right thing".
Want to do something about this? Look up those who support @TPPatriots and then urge them to contact @JennyBethM and suggest she turn on her Koch funders and make opposing amnesty their top priority. Urge the Teaparty "Patriots" to live up to their name. Do the same with supporters of @TeaPartyExpress.
