New Tea Party link to Hudak campaign revealed
TORONTO, Sept. 1, 2011 /CNW/ – Tim Hudak’s campaign is importing their campaign strategy from the right wing extremist Tea Party movement, bringing in strategist Michael Prell.
Prell, the owner of Sterling Communications, sells himself as a “strategist for the Tea Party Patriots” and lists Hudak campaign manager Mark Spiro as his “best friend and business partner.” (Acknowledgements, Underdogma, BenBella Books, 2011)
Before joining the Hudak campaign, Prell worked with many Tea Party politicians, including recently receiving a book endorsement from Michelle Bachmann.
The extreme right wing Tea Party movement in the US is routinely exposed for lying, being incoherent, vacuous and deeply divisive.
Yesterday former PC Premier Ernie Eves decried that Hudak’s PCs are becoming “the Tea Party version of Ontario politics,” pointing to how Hudak and right wing extremist MPP Randy Hillier ousted long-time progressive Conservative MPP Norm Sterling.
As usual, Hudak tried to weasel out of responding to Eves’ charge.
