Obama Fans Storm Tax Day Tea Party In D.C. (VIDEO)


Here's the video, featuring Lawson and tea partier Sherri Stockard:

A volunteer with with TO95 me told the police tossed the group from the plaza because they didn't have a permit to protest there. TO95 captured its own video of the day, available here.

Lawson told me the group wasn't associated with the Democratic party, a union or the Obama administration.

"We are not sponsored by anyone," he said. "We're a group of concerned citizens. We put this together ourselves, and we paid for this banner...We're just out here on our lunch hours making sure our message gets heard by everyday Americans."
