TEA Party Meltdown

TEA Party activists wearing Derek Skees t-shirts disrupted a fraud prevention even State Auditor Monica Lindeen held in the Flathead last week.  The culprits were malcontents Annie Bukacek and her husband Roland Horst.  Left in the West‘s Carla Augustad, who was at the event, has the story.   It’s a must-read.

Apparently, the Skees supporters (Skees is Lindeen’s GOP-TEA Party challenger in the state auditor’s race) were angry that Lindeen’s office is protecting consumers from right-wing Pastor Harris Himes.   Himes has been accused of defrauding a member of his congregation of his life savings by the Auditor’s office and Ravalli County.

According to Augustad, when the lights went down to show a documentary on how to protect yourself from fraud, Bukacek snuck out and changed into a Derek Skees shirt. Then, when the lights came back up for a discussion after the film, Bukacek apparently stood and “made some inference about corruption in the Auditor’s office.  The name Harris Himes erupted and inferences may have transgressed to accusations.”

Buckacek even brought her own camera crew to film the moment for posterity. Bukacek’s husband Roland was apparently filming the entire outburst. (Bonus points for whomever can get  a hold of this video.)

  1. Annie and Roland think they’re going to be the next James O’Keefe and Hannah Giles “undercover pimps”


    That’s why they wanted video.

  2. Well, now we know what the next Derek Skees ad will consist of. And you thought it would be impossible to top this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DXdu7GuDQqo
