Anti-Voter Fraud Tea Party Group Hosts Author Who Thinks Poor Shouldn’t Vote

November 14, 2011 1:00 a.m.

The King Street Patriots are a Texas Tea Party group with an anti-voter fraud spin off organization that is plotting a nationwide poll watching movement and advocates for voter ID laws. Matthew Vadum is a conservative columnist who thinks that registering poor people to vote is un-American and “like handing out burglary tools to criminals.” On Monday, the King Street Patriots will be hosting him for lunch in Houston.

For $100, guests of the King Street Patriots can dine at Maggiano’s for a four-course meal and a signed copy of Vadum’s Subversion Inc.: How Obama’s ACORN Red Shirts are Still Terrorizing and Ripping Off American Taxpayers. They’ll learn all about how a group with “such an innocent sounding name and endearing logo” is really “a criminal organization with the goal of the destruction of America and the installation of a totalitarian government.”From the invite:

Would you like to know the more than 360 groups ACORN controls? Learn their entire history and how their corrupt tactics have allowed them to worm their way into every corner of our government, right up to and including the Community Organizer In Chief.

We invite you to educate yourself on ACORN’s history and their endgame agenda.

His mindblowing expose SUBVERSION, INC. should be required reading for all American who love freedom and virtue.

The King Street Patriot’s Catherine Engelbrecht told the first national conference of True the Vote in March that their effort was “not a partisan thing.” She said she wanted to have about one million volunteers in every precinct in the country for the 2012 presidential election.

Late update: The King Street Patriots are also hosting Vadum for “King Street Live,” which takes place tonight.
