Phoney Broward Tea Bag Protests

Despite these attempts to make the "movement" appear organic, the principle organizers of the local events are actually the lobbyist-run think tanks Americans for Prosperity and Freedom Works. The two groups are heavily staffed and well funded, and are providing all the logistical and public relations work necessary for planning coast-to-coast protests:

Freedom Works staffers coordinate conference calls among protesters, contacting conservative activists to give them "sign ideas, sample press releases, and a map of events around the country."

Freedom Works staffers apparently moved to "take over" the planning of local events in Florida.

Freedom Works provides how-to guides for delivering a "clear message" to the public and media.
