Tea Party caught forging signatures

Now we know how the Tea Party manages to occasionally get its idiotic ideas on the ballot (not like voters ever approve their nonsense). They just forge signatures on the ballot petition.

Recently, the Northern Kentucky Tea Party and the Home Builders Association of Northern Kentucky submitted a petition that would have let folks in Kenton County vote on whether to pull out of the local planning commission. The entire effort was just a big temper tantrum. Now some who signed it say signature gatherers misrepresented the petition. Not only that, but it turns out some of the signatures were forged.

In response, opponents of the ballot measure are now asking people to check the signature list to see if theirs were forged too.

The teabaggers went through the phone book to collect names to falsify. They were caught when they forged the signature of a local lawyer and stupidly used her law office's address instead of her home address.

Now - here's the best part - prosecutors plan to prosecute the signature gatherers. GOOD!!! It is believed that the Tea Party committed second-degree forgery, which in Kentucky is a felony punishable by up to 5 years in prison.

They are so busted.
