It is the mantra of the Tea Party. One of its "core values."
So it is of particular interest that the Venetian Casino Resort in Las Vegas has just sued a Tea Party group for allegedly ducking out on a more than $600,000 tab.
According to the lawsuit, the Tea Party Nation Corporation of Franklin, Tennessee booked more than 1,000 hotel rooms, conference suites and other services for a five-day convention in July last year. Two weeks before the event, however, the Tea Party group canceled, leaving a balance of $554,148 due to the Venetian.
