As you may know, yesterday, Tax Day, was Tea Party Day for many conservatives upset about the Administration's spending and stimulus policies. For the past several weeks, Murphy's office has received several tea bags in the mail, from people supposedly protesting Congress' actions. Tea bags don't make it through the intense security of the Congressional mail, because of the 2001 anthrax attacks. I don't really understand what these people are protesting, since the original tea party, in 1773, was protesting Taxation without Representation, and the only people who can legitimately complain about that are DC residents.
