Tea Party Asks City for a Refund


A Richmond, Va. tea party group is asking the city for its money back, WTVR reports.

While Occupy Richmond protesters are holding their rally in Kanawha Plaza for free, the Richmond Tea party recalls spending around $10,000 to hold its Tax Day Rally in that same plaza.

Colleen Owens, a spokesperson for the tea party, says it's obvious the Occupy demonstrators are not being held to the same standard. "We followed the rules, we followed the law, we got all the permits, we paid all the fees, we had to jump through all the hoops that they asked us to."

Owens says the group is sending the mayor’s office an invoice to request a refund.

“It’s not fair, the City of Richmond’s picking and choosing whose First Amendment rights trump someone else’s First Amendment rights and we thought — well that’s fine — then they can refund our money," she says.
