Michigan Supreme Court Won’t Hear Appeal from The Tea Party that Tried to Get on Ballot

Ballot Access News reports that “on September 3, the Michigan Supreme Court voted 5-2 not to hear the appeal of the group that tried to get on the ballot as “The Tea Party”. The State Court of Appeals had earlier kept that party off the ballot because most of its paperwork said the name of the party is “The Tea Party”, but the petitions say the party is “Tea Party.””

Although it was not a legal issue in the case, this “Tea Party” was actually organized by Democratic Party activists. The US Taxpayers Party of Michigan, which is affiliated with the Constitution Party nationwide, remains on the ballot and has no ties to this group, according to their recent press release.

    Have to admit, unlike that disgusting group in my state that dare uses the TP label, these guys seemed well-intentioned, I think. But if they can’t be on the ballot, then they simply should support the USTP Party- problem solved.
