Tea Party Crowd Crashes Steny Hoyer Event

August 4, 2009 10:25 am

House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer (D-MD) has been one of the latest targets of the Tea Party crowd. During a stop today in the upstate New York district of Democratic Rep. Michael Arcuri, Hoyer was loudly interrupted by a group calling itself the Fort Stanwix Tea Party “Patriots” (quotation marks theirs, oddly enough):

“You’re lying to me,” said “Patriots” ringleader Don Jeror — who previously organized the area Tea Party back in April, interestingly — interrupting Hoyer. “Just because I don’t have sophisticated language, I can recognize a liar when I see one.”

Jeror also declared: “Why would you guys try to stuff a health care bill down our throats in three to four weeks, when the President took six months to pick a dog for his kids?!”
