Indiana Tea Party at Lake Sylvan lands on CNN !

In spite of the rain, the Sylvan Lake Indiana Tea Party in Rome, Indiana went very well. About 100 - 150 people showed up to toss their bills into the lake. The Sylvan Lake coordinators, Nick and Mike were wonderfully hospitable, if not a bit camera shy.

Three local Ft. Wayne television stations covered the event. We were surprised that South Bend's WSBT Channel 22 sent a news crew because of the distance, but they wanted to cover the Tea Party. As it turns out, they misjudged just how far away Rome, IN was and they showed up after we dunked the tea bag. We obliged and re-enacted it for them with the remaining crowd. We believe it was South Bend's WSBT that fed the story to CNN.

Here's the news coverage links. If we missed a story, please email.
