A brief recap:
John Burns falsely accused Washington University several months ago of shutting down a "gulag display" on the Washington University campus because it was "offensive." Actually, Burns' group Young Americans for Liberty only said they would be passing out literature and never filled out paperwork for building a structure on campus, even according to their own members.
Then, a month later, John Burns falsely accused Washington University of "fraud" when the university asked for members of Young Americans for Liberty to pay for the cleanup of the spray-painted hammers and sickles on campus that corresponded with their gulag display.
And here we are on election day for Proposition A. Burns mysteriously decides at the last minute to hold a anti-Prop A rally in Chesterfield and, lo and behold, he accuses the Chesterfield Mayor of ordering the police to kick the protesters off of the intersection. The police chief says that they don't let anyone stand in the median, but Burns and tea partier Gina Loudon still allege that this is a massive conspiracy, and get coverage from KMOX and the Beacon.
The Tea Party uses absolutely ridiculous and shameful tactics over and over again. When is the local media going to learn?
