Activists hold tax day tea party rallies across Virginia today
Today is tax day. And it promises to be a busy one -- not just because people are hurrying to turn in their taxes.
In Virginia, as in many places across the nation, there will a slew of tea party rallies as activists try to send a message to lawmakers in Richmond and Washington to stop spending.
The Virginia Chapter of the Constitutional Sovereignty Alliance will host a march from the state Capitol to the U.S. Capitol, stopping at tea parties in Fredericksburg and Prince William County along the way. Organizers have invited Republican U.S. Reps. Eric Cantor, Frank Wolf, Rob Wittman, Randy Forbes and Bob Goodlatte and Dels. Scott Lingamfelter and Rich Anderson to join them.
Meanwhile, George Allen, former U.S. senator and governor and maybe statewide candidate, and Ben Marchi, state director of Americans for Prosperity, will be addressing three rallies in Woodbridge, Harrisonburg and Staunton.
The state's three Republican statewide officials do not have any special events planned for tax day -- Gov. Bob McDonnell is spending the day in Richmond, Lt. Gov. Bill Bolling is in Italy, as we told you earlier this week, and Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli is speaking at a Liberty University conference in the evening.
