View Full Version : Anonymous 'Confessions of a Tea Party Consultant' author speaks

06-22-2010, 04:54 AM
The anonymous author of “Confessions of a Tea Party Consultant,” published last week by Playboy, told The Daily Caller in an exclusive interview that its been “surreal” to watch reporters try to uncover his identity.

The gist of the anonymous Playboy story is a semi-secret underground Tea Party organization of colorful, troublemaking political operatives across the country using dirty tricks to “to help reshape the debate and protect future generations from creeping socialism and unimaginable debt.”

Reporters from both the Washington Post and Politico, he said, have contacted his friends and colleagues trying to learn his name. He granted the interview on the condition that The Daily Caller would not divulge his identity. In the story, the consultant admits to being at the National Tea Party Convention in Nashville, where this reporter first met him.

“It’s such a fascinating story,” the consultant, in his 30s or 40s, said over drinks at a Washington, D.C. bar of the group. Of the 15 or so people in the inner sanctum, he said there’s been mixed reactions to his piece. Half of the people in the group don’t even know it was he who authored it.

Post reporter Dave Weigel has been asking readers for help in identifying the consultant. He posted a photo that apparently shows the consultant’s chin and arm. But the consultant said he doesn’t think anyone can recognize him in that photo. “My Mom couldn’t tell it was me,” he said.

With the internet, the rest is obsolete, but not bad to look at.

That's because he is from the neo-conservative wing of the Tea Party...
