Tea Party Patriot leader and local resident Mark Meckler has sent an email to area TPP’ers seeking personal donations, stating “my family has come to the end of the financial rope” working on the cause.
“Since last February, I have worked as a full time volunteer, spending my family’s savings, and borrowing to keep going,” according to the email. “In order to continue our mission, we need your financial support.”
As the co-founder of and National Coordinator of the Tea Party Patriots, the California co-coordinator, and the Sacramento co-coordinator, Meckler stated, “I am left with little time to earn a living. So today, I am taking the personally difficult step of reaching out to each of you for your financial support.”
The email provides information for donating $25 to $500 per month via Pay Pal or a one-time donation. Or it states you can make a check payable to Mark Meckler and send it to a P.O. Box in Chicago Park, indicating “gift” in the memo section.
The work cited was: “We stopped Proposition 1A in California, cap & trade, the takeover of our health care system (so far), and independent tea partiers across the nation helped the right candidates in NY23, Virginia, New Jersey and in the Massachusetts Miracle. (And) locally, you’ve burst onto the political scene with a gusto never seen before.”
