Third Party Tea Party

The other day, I noted a movement that grew out of the tax day tea party protests in Toledo, Ohio to field a slate of independent candidates to run against duopolist incumbents on the city council. Something rather similar is afoot in upstate New York. The Buffalo News reports on a rally held in downtown Buffalo: Group Declares War on Incumbents. The group, Tea New York, is calling on voters to declare their independence from the two-party system and vote out incumbents while working "to establish a new ballot line for independent candidates to run on."
