Biggest turnout yet for CA Tea Party


In the span of a few months, the Motherlode Tea Party has outgrown every Amador County venue it has tried to move its flags into.

Wednesday night was no exception, with a hall at the local fairgrounds filled to capacity by residents cheering, laughing, singing traditional American songs and trying to establish themselves as a serious but "fun" party.

The latest event for the group was kicked off by county supervisor Brian Oneto, leading the pledge of allegiance, before Fiddletown troubadour Ron Scofield sang a cowboy rendition of "America the Beautiful."
