LETTERS TO THE EDITOR | Lauderdale is the Tea Party

To the editor:

In the Saturday, June 21, South Whidbey Record, commissioner candidate Jeff Lauderdale is reported at the candidate’s forum to have “put a little distance between himself, (and) the Tea Party.”

There is no doubt that Lauderdale is the Tea Party candidate. As reported in an article for the Whidbey Examiner by Gordon Weeks dated Aug. 15, 2011. Lauderdale announced his candidacy “at the Smugglers Cove home of Whidbey Island Tea Party Patriots members Sam and Debbie Cunningham. Debbie Cunningham is Lauderdale’s campaign manager.”

It may be politically inconvenient now, but Jeff Lauderdale is Tea Party through and through, right down to his campaign manager.
