I got a phone call tonight from a group from Georgia who professed to be a national organizing organization for Tea Party Patriots. They wanted a donation, of course. Is this a legit organization? I told the person that I had not heard of them and was skeptical. I was told that their web site was;http://www.teapartypatriots.org/As a member of the SWMI Patriots, I want to be sure that my donations go to the projects that I approve. Is anyone…See More
