DescriptionTwo years after the Franklin-based Tea Party Nation organization failed to lure tea party activists to a rally in Las Vegas, a judge is ordering the group to pay the bill for a slew of hotel rooms booked for the event.

Earlier versions of this story incorrectly stated that local attorney Judson Phillips, the founder of The for-profit corporation, was liable for the debt.

Tea Party Nation owes the Venetian Casino Resort more than $748,000, according to the ruling. The hotel alleged that the group reserved 1,637 room nights for a July 2010 event but then canceled the gathering just a few weeks prior.
